Mahal, known as the ‘Modern Day Maharaja‘ in WWE and World Wide… is in India to mark the historic occasion of his first professional wrestling match in the country of his origin – he was born in Calgary, Canada as Yuvraj Singh Dhesi – and it carries immense weight in his professional development as he aims to become WWE champion again.
Reported exclusively Speaking to TOI-Times Of India Sports on Friday, Mahal – who was WWE champion for six months – said he was nervous to face Triple H, but that this bout was instrumental in his development as a professional wrestler.
Here Is The Video of ‘Modern Day Maharaja‘ Jinder Mahal:
I’m really disappointed that I’m not here as WWE champion, but a match against Triple H is more than making up for it. “This is definitely the biggest match of my career. Probably the biggest match in Indian wrestling history. I was really looking forward to play Kevin Owens, but this is a really big match,” said Mahal during an hour-long interaction with TOI Sports.
” I definitely feel the pressure. I would be lying if I said it was not a little bit nervous. I’m very, very nervous. Triple H said in a recent interview that now his job is to ensure that the next generation of WWE superstars are up to par, so basically Triple H is the measuring sick, so I need this match personally. I want to see how I measure up to the ‘King of Kings’ Triple H.”
