• Jinder Mahal Wants British Bulldog To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame

During a recent interview with The Independent, former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal talked about who he thinks should be in WWE Hall of Fame, feeling like a winner after losing the WWE Title to AJ Styles in Manchester & more.

Below are the highlights:

On who he thinks should be in the Hall of Fame:

“British Bulldog had a great, storied career. From tagging with The Dynamite Kid to breaking out on his own, his career had a great evolution. He started in Stampede Wrestling in Calgary for Stu Hart and before that had been training in England before being brought in with Dynamite, and of course that classic, classic match against Bret Hart at Summerslam – that’s one of my all-time favorite matches. He’s just a great, great superstar in the history of WWE, so I don’t think it is a matter of if he’ll be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but when he’ll become a member.”

On feeling like a winner after losing the WWE Title to AJ Styles:

“It was the very first time in the history of WWE that the title had changed hands overseas. History was made that night and the match was probably one of the best I’ve ever had. I’ve said this before, but I feel that although I lost, I really won that night. The energy in the arena that night was amazing and AJ Styles really is phenomenal – the fans just love him. I think he might be the number one, top star in WWE in terms of fan reaction because everybody loves him.

Everyone that night was genuinely so happy for him, so it was a little bit bittersweet for me. I was lay on my back on the mat with my eyes closed, listening to the reaction of the crowd and a couple of tears fell in the ring, of happiness as everyone was so pleased for him. It was a very cool moment and it was a moment I’ll never forget.”

On taking WWE for granted:

“We are so blessed to be WWE superstars and sometimes I think that’s taken for granted; what we do, many, many people around the world wish they could do. I was even released by WWE but, fortunately, I was given a second opportunity and, after that, I was never going to take anything for granted. Every day is a blessing and an opportunity and it is up to you to take advantage of that.”

Titus offered Ziggler a spot in his stable, but Ziggler said that he didn’t come alone. This led to former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre making his return and attacking Titus.
