6. Jim Ross Says There’s No Way Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal Won’t Deliver
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, “The Maharaja” Jinder Mahal pinned the WWE Champion, and his Backlash 2017 opponent, Randy Orton in a 6 man tag team match.
Below is what WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross had to say about the build-up of Orton-Mahal feud in his latest blog entry:
“Strong build continues for Jinder Mahal as he prepares to main event against Randy Orton for the WWE Title at Backlash 2017. I am enjoying this build for multiple reasons not the least being that it is a new match with a solid story behind it. There is no reason that this match should not deliver in a big way when these two meet.
The six man tag on SD Live delivered the way a show closing bout should and Mahal beating the champion in a tag match was timely and made sense.”
