Lately, he has been in headlines for being the number 1 contender for prestigious WWE title. He has also taken part in largest Royal Rumble match. It consisted of 41 wrestlers and Mahal made it to the last 3 after being eliminated by Randy Orton. Reportedly, all the big names in the backstage are impressed by the work put in by the young sensation. He has also transformed his body and has now got low-fat lean muscles. It came as a shocker when Jindar Mahal emerged victorious in the 6-pack challenge. The match was studded with the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan, Luke Harper, Sami Zayn and Mojo Rowley. He was telecasted on one of the most recent episodes of Smackdown in which Jinder’s victory made him number 1 contender for the WWE championship which is held by the 8-packs predator Randy Orton.

There have been several steroid abuse accusations against Jinder Mahal, regardless of which WWE is providing him with a push. Allegedly, Shane McMahon is impressed by the 30-year-old Indo-Canadian wrestler’s work ethics and willing to push him to the big stage. Shane is known is favor wrestlers who have good looking body type and work hard like Jinder Mahal. Sheamus is an appropriate example in this context, who is a foreigner but has the huge impact in WWE and has made a name for himself. Randy Orton does have a house of horrors match against Bray Wyatt but it is not a championship match. So, Randy Orton might face Jinder at the WWE main event Backlash to be aired on May 21st.  

 

Marketing strategy

This is a very good strategy by WWE to advertise its brand in India. This would increase their scope and reach to interiors of India. WWE is followed very passionately by the Indians so there is a ready market for WWE in India to sell their products. Last week they opened their first shop in India. Jindar’s push could be nothing but a publicity stunt for the Indians but whatever that is, WWE has been quite efficient in executing it.

Future for the Indo-Canadian Wrestler-

It would be interesting to see if WWE lets him win the title which is very unlikely. But if he does, it would come as a huge boost to the Indian wrestling fraternity. If Jinder loses the match, then there would be a big question in front of Shane, to whether give him the limelight or make him a regular jobber. WWE always comes up with stories that engage their audiences all over the world. Jinder’s story with Randy started in the Royal Rumble where the former was eliminated by the latter. The twists and turns in the story of Jindar would be something to watch out for.
