Jinder Mahal earned a title shot from WWE Champion Randy Orton at the May 21st Backlash pay-per-view by winning the Six-Pack Challenge on last night’s SmackDown. He won with an assist from The Bollywood Boyz, then cut a post-match promo about how Americans won’t accept diversity but they will accept him as WWE Champion.
For people who missed Talking Smack, he appeared on there and spoke about this with Renee Young and Shane McMahon. He believes Orton knows he’s a threat. He goes on about being younger, faster and in better shape than Orton, and continued on from there.
There are people backstage in WWE that are applauding Jinder Mahal for the hard work he’s put in since returning to WWE last year. People that know him say that he is taking this run very very seriously, and he is “working his ass off” to make sure he is given opportunities within the company. That hard work has paid off because he is the next challenger for the WWE Championship at WWE Backlash.
