Last week on Smackdown Live, a six pack challenge took place to determine the no 1 contender for the WWE championship at Backlash involving Dolph Ziggler, Luke Harper, Eric Rowan, Jinder Mahal, Mojo Rowley and Sami Zayn.
The match was pretty entertaining and it ended in a shocking way. Jinder Mahal won the match and he will face Randy Orton for the WWE championship at the backlash.
With Jinder Mahal being the no 1 contender for the WWE championship now, we hope to see him being elevated to the main event from this week onwards. Of course, putting someone on the WWE championship frame does not make you a main eventer. Jinder has to win some matches, they have to present him as a worthy competitor for the world title.
Last week, fans criticised WWE’s decision of Randy Orton hindering Jinder Mahal after his win. Yes, indeed it was a bad look for the feud. But look, keeping at Jinder’s previous run in mind, how could any champion take him seriously?
First, he needed to be built as a serious contender. So Orton hindering Jinder is not a condemnable decision so far.
Hopefully, Jinder Mahal will form a faction with the Bollywood boys and the stable will be named as the Singh brothers according to the certain rumours.
It is also said that Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett will join Jinder’s stable upon their return. In case you missed the story, we need to inform you that Maria Kanellis and her husband Mike Bennett are rumoured to return to WWE and they are also rumoured to join Smackdown.
It would be an excellent idea to form a stable involving all these wrestlers and Jinder Mahal as the leader of them. It will not only make Jinder a serious deal but some engaging storylines too. Oh yes, heel faction based storylines are always very interesting to watch.
We think Jinder Mahal and the Bollywood will cost Randy Orton his match at Payback. As we all know, Randy Orton is set to meet Bray Wyatt in a house of horrors match at Payback. As it is a non-title match, possibilities are there for Orton to lose the match. We think Jinder will get involved in this match and will cost Orton the house of horrors competition.
