Jinder Mahal Talks WWE Return, Drew McIntyre Ahead of Superstar Spectacle

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).
