Here’s why Jinder should be champ

After winning the no.1 contenders match a few weeks ago on SmackDown, Jinder Mahal’s stardom has risen to new levels we never thought possible. The Canadian-born wrestler is now one of the top heels in the company, rapidly becoming the most talked about member of the roster.

I know this may be an unpopular opinion, but I strongly believe Jinder Mahal should beat Randy Orton at Backlash to become the new WWE Champion. Jinder has it all, looks, charisma, presence and wrestling ability. The company is in the midst of great change and Jinder Mahal as WWE kingpin would signify that change best.

Here are 5 reasons why Jinder Mahal should become the next WWE Champion.


#5 It's a fresh face for the title scene

SmackDown is great but when the draft first took place, the blue brand was billed as the land of opportunity. So far we’ve only seen WWE title reigns from Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, John Cena & Randy Orton. That doesn’t sound so opportunistic, it sounds like already known main eventers hogging the spotlight.

Jinder Mahal is not only a fresh face in the WWE title picture, he’s a fresh face in the main event scene. He’s exactly what SmackDown needed and gives the fans new hope that anyone of their underappreciated favourites could be going for gold one day.
