5. Two Interesting Statistics About Jinder Mahal
As we noted before, Jinder Mahal (with help from The Bollywood Boyz) won the 6 pack challenge on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live to become the #1 contender to the WWE Championship.
This week’s match on SmackDown Live was Jinder’s first televised match on SmackDown since May 30, 2014 (where he lost to El Torito). Also, this was Jinder’s first win on SmackDown since the October 9, 2012 (where he competed in a tag team match).
Another interesting statistic regarding Jinder that should be noted is that he recently competed in his first singles WWE PPV match at FastLane 2017 (where he lost to Cesaro).
Now his second singles match at a WWE PPV will be for the WWE Championship!
