Jinder Mahal heavyweight title reign sends shockwaves, Randy Orton rematch expected

Instead, expect an impressive showing from both men that features Dolph selling his ass off like only he can do and Shinsuke showing the WWE Universe why this dancing guy gets so much attention.

Mahal made his in ring debut for the WWE way back in 2011 and was never considered a top superstar in his initial years but this year the WWE chose to give him a shot at the big stage. As you've probably heard, Jinder Mahal upset Randy Orton to win the Smackdown World Title this past Sunday at "Backlash 2017". Afterwards, Styles was seen looking frustrated as limped to the back with help from WWE officials.

"It feels great. Randy Orton is one of the greatest WWE superstars of all time, 13-time WWE champion and to knock off somebody like him, the "Apex Predator" is a great feeling; being a WWE champion and to be representing India is tremendous".

Also on Smackdown Live, commissioner Shane McMahon announced the contestants for the upcoming Money in the Bank Ladder Match. The match was added to the event shortly after and the two will face each other again for the second time this month.

A great deal of the WWE fans had their first exposure to "The King of Strong Style" last night at WWE Backlash. Contender's Match for the United States Championship.

Well, it looks like some folks in Canada are proud of native son Jinder Mahal and his WWE Title win as Sunday's Backlash. Putting the title on Jinder Mahal is an attempt to wring more money out of India (a country of 1.3 billion people, as Mahal reminded fans last night). Mahal used interference from the Singh Brothers to defeat Randy Orton at WWE's Backlash show to claim the title. He went on to accuse McMahon of favouritism, and McMahon eventually put Owens as the sixth member in the match. The superstar shake-up of a few weeks ago has left the women in a little bit of limbo at the moment and I can only assume much of that has to do with the status of Charlotte. They also asked Becky Lynch to join them and after acting like she would accept, she attacked them.
