WWE has announced that Jinder Mahal would defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton in a Punjabi Prison Match at Battleground.
For those who may not recall, the Punjabi Prison features two cages made of Bamboo. The inner cage has a door on each side that can only be opened by a referee at the request of one of the combatants and can only remain open for 60 seconds. Once combatants are within the realm of the outer cage, the only way to win is climb over and escape.
