Jinder Mahal Discusses John Cena, Facing Randy Orton At WWE Battleground, Drew McIntyre

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently spoke with USA Today’s “For The Win” section to promote this Sunday’s Punjabi Prison match against Randy Orton at WWE Battleground. Here are the highlights:

On the Punjabi Prison Match:

“I would say it’s the most dangerous match in the history of WWE. I’ve seen Hell in a Cell, I’ve seen the Elimination Chamber, this trumps them all. This match is made for beasts and that is exactly what Randy and I have to become. I’m sure we won’t disappoint, we’re going to steal the show. The risk is high and so is the reward, because the reward is the WWE championship. When I’m out there, I’m in a different state of mind, I truly become the Modern Day Maharaja. This is my match, this is my structure, this is my stipulation, this is my turf.”

On John Cena:

“He is this generation’s greatest, I am the future, I don’t think I’ve hit my prime, I need to establish myself. Beating someone of the caliber of John Cena at an event like SummerSlam would be awesome.”

On Drew McIntyre:

“I know that Drew is very motivated; he’s driven and focused. He took it quite personally when he was released by WWE. He set out on a mission to prove he is the best in the world and I truly believe he is one of the best performers in the world, he is just an animal. He for sure will be NXT Champion and I know for-sure he is a future champion; whether it’s the Universal Championship or my championship. Somewhere down the line, it might not be for a while, but there will be a 3MB reunion. I had a lot of fun with 3MB, I learned a lot of things. That’s one of the things with WWE, to stay relevant, you have to constantly evolve. All three of us have evolved and now I’m WWE Champion.”
