WWE Champion Jinder Mahal will be a babyface when he faces a top heel in December

Jinder Mahal is currently in India on a press tour to promote their upcoming shows in Abu Dhabi. On Friday, he made an announcement on the set of WWE Sunday Dhamaal, the WWE recap show that airs exclusively in India. He revealed that he will be facing Kevin Owens in December.

It may not sense to most fans to have two top heels facing each other but it makes perfect sense in India where Mahal is portrayed as a hero and WWE’s biggest babyface. Few fans know this but while Mahal may cut anti-American promos on Smackdown every week, the company airs babyface promos for him in India with the idea being that more fans in that part of the world will tune into WWE programming (and buy tickets and merchandise) since they have someone that they can relate to.

WWE will head to Abu Dhabi, at the Zayed Sports City Tennis Stadium on Thursday, December 7. Then, in partnership with Sony Pictures Networks India, they will head to New Delhi at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium for shows on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9.
