10 reasons Jinder Mahal is exactly what the WWE needs
When the reigning Smackdown brand champion made his return to the WWE, no one could have predicted how his value would skyrocket so quickly. Jinder Mahal holds the coveted top spot on the Smackdown brand and shows no sign of slowing down.
But nothing breeds contempt quite like success, and there is a very vocal community of WWE fans which believes that Jinder is the wrong choice for such a prominent role with the company.
Here are ten reasons why the critics are wrong about Jinder Mahal.
#10 A promising Physique
There's no question that the WWE Smackdown Champion is looking ripped these days. While some have questioned whether performance-enhancing drugs were utilized in his transformation, it seems unlikely with the WWE's strict Wellness Policy.
Jinder used diet and a new workout routine focused on getting him into the best shape of his life. No one, not even John Cena or Randy Orton, can lay claim to the title of 'most jacked' as long as Jinder is around.
While dedicated wrestling fans can appreciate an athlete with Kevin Owens' or Beer City Bruiser, the casual observer expects professional wrestlers to be tall, powerful and chiselled in stone. Jinder is all the three.
His marketable look is only one reason he's going to be around WWE for a long time to come, whatsoever.
