Jinder Mahal has not been seen with any significant work in WWE for one and a half year now after back to back surgeries on his knee.
The first time he was operated on his knee was back in June 2019 to deal with a ‘ruptured patella tendon.’ He returned to action after WrestleMania 36 and had a couple of victories on WWE RAW. However, the knee issue struck back and Mahal had to undergo another surgery which forced him out of action until now.
Now, Mahal is set to return at WWE Superstar Spectacle event which is to be aired on 26 January 2021. Former WWE Champion joined WWE Now India for an exclusive interview ahead of the event and declared that he is now fully fit, in shape, and ready to return for good. (You can check the video above).
Mahal also discussed some of the new Indian wrestlers coming out of WWE Developmental and said he has been in touch with them and he is glad that these upcoming stars are gonna be in the ring with some of the top WWE stars.
The Modern-Day Maharaja also hoped that these Indians stars could go on and inspire a new generation of athletes to come to WWE Tryouts and even wished for WWE Performance Center to open in India.
Upon his return after WrestleMania 36, Jinder Mahal was reportedly set for a big push on WWE RAW. Paul Heyman had big plans for him at the time, including a feud with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. But, then a second surgery was required on his knee, which resulted in another spell on the sidelines for him. Now, as Mahal is returning to action, Mahal wants to go after Drew McIntyre and the WWE title.
