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.

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).
