Will anything hinder the Jinder now????
...
The modern day Maharaja gets a massive pop as he poses on the barricade victorious! The crowd's reaction is almost as unfathomable as the winner! Jinder Mahal is going to go down in history as the 50th WWE Champion in the title's history! What a fantastic end to a PPV that had more lows than highs until now! 
...
Sadly Randy Orton's title run took a dive. #WWEBacklash
...
Well we just went Mah-all in on Jinder Mahal #WWEBacklash
...
Orton hits the brothers with a double DDT on the ropes and Jinder ambushes Orton from behind to send Orton crashing to the mat with the Khalas to unbelievably win the WWE Championship!

Jinder Mahal wins! Has hell finally frozen over????
...
Randy hits a DDT on the ropes and sells his injury before smashing the canvas in anticipation of the RKO. Jinder smartly rolls out of the way and the Viper encounters the brothers, giving Mahal just enough time to take advantage to slam Orton's shoulder into the ring post twice. Mahal walks into an RKO but is saved by faithful lackeys who are then sent flying all over the place by the viper. 
...
Nice of Randy Orton to rely only on moves that will hurt his injured shoulder. A true ring general.
...
Orton lands a power slam and then connects with a fall away slam. JBL points out that Orton's left arm is what got Jinder off the hook. A Mahal neck breaker leads to a cover as Orton continues to cling onto his arm. Mahal's grunts don't save his from the subsequent back breaker as Jinder rolls out of the ring and onto the apron.
...
Orton has Mahal on the third rope but not for long as Jinder gets him off soon but gets crotched on the ropes immediately after. Soon excellent selling precedes an Orton superplex off the third rope that isn't enough to put Jinder away.
...
The rest hold extends and the initially desperate Orton has enough time to work his way to the ropes. Jinder chases Orton down in the corner but finds the ringpost with his shoulder instead.
...
Jinder reverts to the arm lock yet again after the action returns to the ring and underlines it with an emphatic elbow to the head. Jinder tightens the hold as this match of rest holds and JBl's excuses for it continue. 
...
A portion of the crowd seems to share our opinion that Orton has gotten stale, as the Viper lifts Jinder and slams him onto the announcer's desk. 
...
Not sure why The Singh Bros are dressed like dental hygienists
...
Mahal uses his brute strength to twist Randy's arm as the crowd unbelievably chants 'let's go Jinder, Jinder sucks'. Orton then works out of it and establishes his dominance with stomps. Mahal attempts the backslide and transitions into a slam that allows him to slow things down with another arm lock.   
...
Since 1963, 49 different men have held the WWE Title. If Jinder Mahal wins it tonight, he'd be the 50th person to hold the WWE Championship
