7. Jinder Mahal Talks About Proving Why SmackDown Live Is Truly The Land Of Opportunity, Says It’s Time For A New WWE Champion
During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, “The Maharaja” Jinder Mahal, who’s the #1 Contender for the WWE Championship, talked about proving why SmackDown Live is truly the “land of opportunity”.
Below is what he said:
“It’s been great. They say SmackDown Live is the land of opportunity and I think I’ve proved that it really is. The move has been great. When I originally debuted in 2011, I was on SmackDown. At the time, they were separate from RAW so I feel at home on SmackDown. It’s good to be back. RAW is also a great show but I feel, for me, SmackDown is a better opportunity and I’ve run with the opportunity so far on the blue brand.”
Jinder also talked about working with Randy Orton and why it’s time for a new WWE Champion:
“The experience is great. I’m on the European tour so I get to wrestle Randy Orton every night. I try to pick up points every time on how to beat him at WWE Backlash to win the WWE Championship. Working with him is great.
He’s a legend in the business. As they say, he’s the legend killer but I think it’s time for someone new to challenge him. I’m younger than him, I’m faster than him and I’m in better shape than him. I’m also stronger than him and don’t have any injuries so I think it’s time for a new WWE Champion.”
