Jinder Mahal Interview – Thoughts On His Current Standing In WWE, Career Highlight



Jinder Mahal

Speaking to SLAM! Wrestling, Jinder Mahal addressed his current standing in WWE, which has him both on the main roster and developmental promotion NXT.

“I actually don’t mind the travel, I am single with no family or kids so I am used to being busy. When I have a few days off I am anxious to get back to work, so doing house shows, TV and NXT hasn’t really been an issue with me. I am enjoying it, I have been on the road for a little bit over a year and it hasn’t been draining so far. I am sure it will become challenging as I progress but for now I am just having a blast traveling across the world, especially performing in front of the Canadian fans,” he said.

Mahal says his WWE highlight thus far was appearing on Raw 1,000 with a group of wrestlers to attack Kane when the Undertaker made an appearance. Though on the receiving end of a beating, he considered it a huge deal.

“Being part of Raw 1000 in the same ring with Undertaker and Kane leading an army of young hungry wrestlers was amazing,” he recalled. “In Birmingham, England I had a match with Tyson Kidd and Mick Foley was at ringside and delivered a socko to me at the end of the match. That was another one of those moments that if you told me I would be in the ring with Mick Foley giving me a socko I wouldn’t believe you. It is those moments that make me realize what I have accomplished in my life, from humble beginnings in Stampede Wrestling to coming to FCW and making my way to the roster and sharing the ring with Undertaker, Kane and Mick Foley is just the best.”

Mahal says he has high hopes for his future in WWE.

“I am going to keep working hard to climb up the ranks of the WWE. You can catch me on Superstars on almost a weekly basis and I am making waves in NXT and want to capture that title from Seth Rollins. When I am on Raw and Smackdown I try to make the best of it. I am young, just 26 and have a great deal to offer to the WWE. I am excited to see what the future brings, the possibilities are endless.”

Mahal also discusses his following among East Asian fans, facing Ryback, returning to his native Canada, and appearing on NXT. The full interview is available here.
