At last night’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Jinder Mahal retained his WWE Championship over Randy Orton. While we might not know his next opponent, it seems we know what type of match Mahal will next be defending his title in.
According to a Reddit post Monday morning, a security guard at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania said that “a big bamboo cage is being sized for the arena.” The Wells Fargo Center just happens to be the site of the next Smackdown Live pay-per-view Battleground.
It would seem that the Punjabi Prison Match could be making a return to WWE for the first time since 2007. The match first took place at Great American Bash in 2006 between Big Show and The Undertaker and again when Batista took on The Great Khali, the only other Indian World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history.
The first to escape both cages would win the match. If you need a refresher of the second match, you can relive it in all its…glory? Just watch the video below.
The only appropriate way for this match to end would be for Mahal to actually retain the championship, since, you know, the first Indian to compete in it did not win and the first match did not even involve the superstar it was named after.
It will certainly be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks leading up to Battleground. What do you think fans? Would you like to see the Punjabi Prison Match return?
