Jinder Mahal recently spoke with Hindustan Times ahead of Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view. Mahal is scheduled to challenge Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. He noted that his goal has always been to become WWE Champion.
“I’m one win away from becoming WWE Champion. One win away from making all my dreams come true and changing my life. I’m going to be more aggressive, and I’m training harder now. I’m not the champion yet, but that’s the goal – to be WWE Champion.”
Mahal is getting a main event push thanks, in part, to WWE’s expansion in India so I wouldn’t expect his push to fade after Backlash. So, who is his dream opponent? Mahal said, “I would like to face John Cena next. Hopefully, I will be WWE Champion when the time to face Cena comes.”
Mahal also discussed representing India, learning Punjabi before English, and more. You can read the entire interview here.
