5 reasons Jinder Mahal might lose the WWE title
Jinder Mahal's WWE Championship reign came as a surprise to us all, but what has become even more surprising is the longevity with which his reign has been awarded.
However, now that a title defence has seemingly sprung from nowhere, is it WWE's intention to take the belt from the longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era?
If the plan really is to relieve Jinder of the title so suddenly, a plausible reason could be that the champion has sustained some kind of injury that would prevent him from performing to his best.
If it really is an injury, the fact that he's been given the go-ahead to lose the title legitimately to AJ Styles suggests it's far from a career-threatening issue, but one that could still require a healing period.
