    Jinder Mahal as Raj Singh? I never would’ve guessed.

    “I was surprised, because we were pretty well booked on everything” Not exactly sure what world Singh lives in but they were pretty much jobbers to the rising stars. They had comedic storylines which is fine, but there was no actual progression with the group individually. It was more about their mascotts than the group themselves.
    To put it simply, they were filler.. at best.
