Jinder Mahal Returned To WWE Action, Seemingly Forms New Faction
Don’t be shocked if WWE introduces a new group headed up by Jinder Mahal in the coming weeks on Raw. The former WWE Champion made an appearance in the ring to face Jeff Hardy prior Raw going live this week and he appears to be flanked by a couple of former NXT talents.
It looks like Mahal has formed a new alliance with ex-NXT tag team Indus Sher. During Monday night’s pre-Raw Main Event tapings, Mahal returned in a match vs. Jeff Hardy and Indus Sher (Saurav Gurjar and Rinku Singh) accompanied him to the ring. Not only that, but they helped him score the win over the Charismatic Enigma.
WWE fans last saw Jinder and Indus Sher perform at the Superstar Spectacle which was held in January 2021 and aired as a WWE Network special. It featured a mix of weekly main roster talent and some of the bigger Indian-born talents. Interestingly, at that show, Indus Sher teamed with Drew McIntyre to take on Mahal and The Bollywood Boys. It appears WWE has decided to turn them heel and join forces.
While he was seen on stage prior to WrestleMania 37 and has back healthy and ready to go for a little while, Mahal hasn’t wrestled since May 2020. So too, Indus Sher were pulled from NXT programming in June. It seems logical to assume this has been something WWE has been working on.
Could This Turn Into Something Strong For Raw?
That WWE decided to have these wrestlers make their return on a show like Main Event is intriguing. One would think WWE would bring them out on one of the flagship shows. Perhaps this is just a test to build chemistry for the trio.
It’s not clear if WWE plans to have them debut imminently or not. Seems like a perfect match and WWE would probably do well to have them be a force on the red brand.
