6. Jinder Mahal Says He Doesn’t Have A Problem With Brock Lesnar Being A Part-Timer, Says Lesnar Has Earned That Spot, Reveals When He Found Out About His WWE Title Win
During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, “The Maharaja” Jinder Mahal discussed his WWE Championship victory at Backlash 2017, Brock Lesnar being a part-time champion & more. Below are the highlights:
On Vince McMahon’s reaction to his WWE Title win:
On when did he find out he’s winning the WWE Title:
“Vince was very happy. He was really proud of me because Vince knows how much work I’ve put in. And, I told Vince, ‘Hey Vince, my goal is to come back every week and improve. Every time you see me perform I’m going to get better on the mic, going to get better in the ring and I’ll be in better shape every week.’ I think Vince really appreciates that and WWE is a place where they reward hard work and I’m an example of that.”
“I found out the day of the PPV.”On WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar being a part-timer:
“I have no problem with Brock Lesnar being a part-timer because he’s earned that spot. He’s a multiple time champion in WWE, a former UFC Champion, NCAA amateur wrestling champion so his accolades speak for themselves. He’s at a point where he calls the shots and he decides whether he’ll be part-time or full-time. I’m young, I’m hungry. This is my first taste of WWE gold. I only want more and I’m not satisfied. I want to retire, when it’s all said and done, as one of the greats.
My message to Brock is that The Maharaja does what it takes to be a true champion, a full-time fighting champion willing to take on anybody – whether it’s Brock, Cena, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns or anybody.”
