Following his WWE Championship victory at WWE Backlash, Jinder Mahal gave an interview to the fans in India. As we have noted before on WrestlingNews.co, Mahal is being portrayed as a babyface to the fans in that region and as a heel to the rest of the world. The feeling is that there is a lot of money to be made and they needed to push a top guy that fans in that part of the world could relate to. Part of the reasoning behind WWE’s decision is that their social media stats show that there are more WWE fans in that country than anywhere else in the world.
In the interview below, Mahal talks about his plans to hold the WWE Championship for a long time. It’s interesting to note that he said that he is looking forward to defending the title in India. WWE will be touring India in September so it does not look like he will be dropping the title anytime soon…at least not until after the India tour.
