The current WWE Champion, who just retained his title at Battleground, actually wasn’t really a main-eventer overnight (Although fast-tracked when pushed) and teased returning to his fun-loving band member roots.
Jinder Mahal, in his first stint with the WWE, debuted as Great Khali’s brother-in-law which Khali broke away from. After a few weeks of winning matches on Superstars, but losing on bigger shows, his character took a dramatic turn by joining 3MB with current Raw superstar Heath Slater and current NXT Championship #1 contender, Drew McIntyre until he and McIntyre were released in June 2014. Both eventually went back to the WWE after a few years in the indies.
In an interview with USA Today, Mahal praised Drew McIntyre, his former stablemate’s motivation and talent.
“I know that Drew is very motivated; he’s driven and focused,” Mahal said. “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.”
He also teased reforming 3MB somewhere around the line, although not quickly.
“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.”
