• Jinder Mahal Says Triple H Is Past His Prime
During a recent interview with TOI Sports, former WWE Champion “The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal promoted his match with “The King of Kings” Triple H tonight at WWE Live in India.
During the interview, Mahal said that Triple H is a bit past his prime and that he hasn’t even entered his prime yet and he’s already a former WWE Champion. Below are the highlights:
On facing Triple H tonight:
“This is definitely the biggest match of my career. Probably the biggest match in Indian wrestling history. I’m really disappointed that I’m not here as WWE champion, but a match against Triple H is more than making up for it. I was really looking forward to facing Kevin Owens, but this is a really big match.
I would be lying if I said I was not a little bit nervous. I definitely feel the pressure. I’m very, very nervous. Triple H said in a recent interview that now his job is to ensure that the next generation of WWE Superstars are up to par, so basically Triple H is the measuring stick, so I need this match personally. I want to see how I measure up to Triple H, the ‘King of Kings’.”
On Triple H being past his prime:
“I personally believe that Triple H is a bit past his prime, whereas I haven’t even hit my prime. I’m 31 years old. Day by day, week by week, month by month I’m getting better. I hope Triple H sees that, and come tomorrow I think he’s going to see that my arm is going to be raised at the end of the night in celebration of victory.”
Speaking of Jinder, he reunited with former World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali and trained in the gym with Indian Boxer Vijender Singh. Below are the photos:

You can watch the highlights from the main event below:
In the video above, WWE filmed it too close to the ring and you could easily see Ambrose not touching Samoa Joe with his kick and Rollins’ finisher barely connecting on Cesaro.
