16. Jinder Mahal Explains Why Triple H Is One Of The Smartest Minds In The Wrestling Business

During a recent interview with Times of India, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal discussed about fulfilling Triple H’s prophecy, his promo work, ideas for his character & more. Below are the highlights:

On fulfilling Triple H’s prophecy on him & Seth Rollins becoming future main eventers:

“I believe it was the prophecy made by Triple H in NXT at that time (Gold Rush tournament). Two young guys who he thought were the future of the business and it turned out to be true. Seth Rollins is a multiple-time champion, I am the current World champion. We were having main event matches in NXT and now we are in the main events in WWE. So I believe it was the prophecy of Triple H. He is one of the smartest minds in the wrestling business and wrestlers that are in NXT right now, main eventing NXT shows are the guys who you are going see main-eventing WWE PPVs in Raw and SmackDown Live in the future.”

On who comes up with ideas for his character:

“A lot of it is my idea and actually a lot has come from Triple H as well. He is also very hand on working behind the scenes. Presentation is everything and it is very important in this business I believe. Look at the all-time greats like the Bret Hart, The Rock. So, I have been throwing in my own set of ideas with Triple H, along with the backstage producers, stage crews, lighting guys and it is a combined effort. Credit doesn’t go to the people working backstage, but they are an integral part of the show.”

On improving his promos:

“My promos have improved because I put in a lot of effort during my time away from wrestling. I did promos in front of the mirror, I used to record it on my cell phone, used to review it and worked on it. I always go to Vince after every promo that I do on television and I seek his advice.”


The Prophecy …. long before the King Slayer and The Maharaja. #wwenxt #wwechampionship #WWEVancouver
