As noted, WWE has canceled one of the shows originally scheduled for the upcoming India tour and has reduced the tour to one Supershow taking place on December 9th in New Delhi.
The show will be headlined by Triple H vs Jinder Mahal, a match which was made earlier this week when Triple H posted a video message challenging The Modern Day Maharaja to a match at the event. Mahal accepted and the bout is now official for the supershow.
Kevin Owens vs Jinder Mahal was originally scheduled to take place on the WWE India tour, however, the match has been scrapped in favor of The Game vs Mahal, and Owens has since been pulled from the tour altogether.
Owens being pulled from WWE India comes at an interesting time considering he and Sami Zayn were just sent home from last week’s overseas tour following a creative incident which took place at the Manchester WWE Smackdown tapings. It’s unknown whether or not Owens being pulled from the WWE India event is related to him being sent home from The UK tour, however the timing of Triple H vs Jinder Mahal being announced it worth pointing out.
Both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been rumored to return to WWE at tonight’s WWE Smackdown Live tapings.
