• Jinder Mahal Reveals The Locker Room’s Reaction To His WWE Title Win
During a recent interview with Akhilesh Gannavarapu, former WWE Champion “The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal talked about the reaction to his WWE Championship win earlier this year.
Below are the highlights:
On the locker room’s reaction to his WWE Championship win at Backlash 2017:
“I think the reaction backstage was very well, because it showed the boys that anything was possible. Jinder was there to enhance the other guys, to make the other guys look good for years, was released. And he came back and was still — he didn’t come back and win the title immediately.
I made my own push, I made my own opportunity. WWE is a place where they reward hard work, and they realized, the rest of the boys realized that when they do hard work, doors will open, and stuff starts to happen. And it does. I’d like to think that I motivated the other guys in the locker room.”
On Vince McMahon’s reaction to his WWE Title win:
“I would tell Vince McMahon, ‘Hey! I’m telling you, I’m going to run this place one day’. And I think Vince likes to hear that. He knew I was motivated. He knew I was hungry. So when I won the championship, and when he congratulated me, he gave me a big hug, and it wasn’t a surprise because I told him that this moment was going to happen.
I look forward to it continuing to happen. I still tell him to this day. I may not run it yet fully, I’m in the running. But one day, this place is going to be mine.”
