– The Biggest Victory Of His Career Came Days Before His Backlash 2017 Bout
“The Maharaja” Jinder Mahal picked up the biggest win of his career when he defeated former WWE Champion “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles in a singles match on the go-home edition of SmackDown Live for Backlash 2017.
However, the win wasn’t clean as he was helped by The Singh Brothers and Styles’ Backlash 2017 opponent, United States Champion Kevin Owens. But hey, a win is a win.
Later in the night, WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated Baron Corbin in the main event. After the match, Mahal and The Singh Brothers attacked Orton and Mahal laid out Orton with his finisher to make a big statement ahead of their Backlash 2017 WWE Championship match.
Speaking of Mahal, his finisher (Cobra Clutch Slam) has a personalized name now – The Khallas. In Indian language, it means the end/finished.
