7 things we learned from Jinder Mahal’s recent interview on Lilian Garcia’s podcast
Former WWE champion Jinder Mahal stunned the wrestling world when he defeated Randy Orton at WWE Backlash, in what was possibly one of the most shocking moments in modern era wrestling.
Making it in the WWE is certainly tough, but going from a jobber, getting released, to getting re-signed and eventually winning one of the two main championships in WWE is something that not many would even dream of.
However, Jinder is living proof that if you work hard enough, it all pays off. Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia recently interviewed the Modern Day Maharaja on her podcast Chasing Glory and the hour-long interview revealed a few things that not many know about him.
#1 He has a great relationship with Randy Orton
Jinder Mahal winning the WWE championship was a turning point in his WWE career. Right before the big match, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had a meeting with both Randy and Jinder (separately) and told them Jinder was going over that night.
Surprisingly, Randy was more than happy to put him over, and Jinder revealed that they are good friends outside the ring.
The Modern Day Maharaja mentioned that he learned a lot from working with Randy Orton, and has always maintained a good relationship with him. Jinder also said that Orton is one of the greatest Superstars in the industry today.
