Jinder Mahal reportedly in talks to return to WWE



Former WWE star Jinder Mahal, 30, is being considered for a possible return to WWE. The news was reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet.

Multiple sources tell Ryan Satin that Jinder had been talking with WWE about returning so he could help fill out the rosters, although both sides have not had talks for several weeks. WWE's talent depth issues are obvious so it would only help the company if they brought back some former talent that could still go in the ring. Dave Meltzer broke the news several weeks ago on WWE reaching out to several former stars about returning. Carlito, Brian Myers, MVP, and Stevie Richards were some of the other names that were contacted.

Mahal was spotted backstage at the TNA Slammiversary pay-per-view several weeks ago but it doesn't look like a deal was made. In the meantime, Mahal continues to work on the independent circuit. He's working for Lucha Elite on 6/23, All-Star Wrestling in Vancouver on 6/24 and Calgary on 6/25.
