Jinder Mahal On Being WWE Champion, Fans Who Think He’s Undeserving

– WWE Superstar Jinder Mahal recently spoke with The Times Of India to help promote his his match with Randy Orton at Money In The Bank, check out the highlights below:

On the fans perspective of him:

“The viewers and the fans hesitate to see me as a main-event guy. That is a challenge, my biggest challenge. Right now, my goal is to change people’s perception and make them believe that I belong here, and that I deserve to be the champion.”

On enjoying the jibes:

“Definitely, as an Indian, I’m seen as an outsider, and definitely, the jeers come from that. But I enjoy it, I even encourage it. Whatever noise they make when I’m in the ring, it motivates me, drives me to do better. I enjoy those jibes so I’m not affected by that at all.”

On his goals:

“I’ve been champion for less than a month now. I want to remain champion for a long time and be remembered as one of the greatest WWE Champions of all time, definitely a future Hall of Famer. I want to be WWE Champion by the time WWE returns to India to do a live show, so that I can face and beat guys like Randy Orton, John Cena, or AJ Styles in front of the Indian fans.”
