#1 Jinder Mahal wants to turn babyface

Do you think non-Indian crowds will cheer for him?
Do you think non-Indian crowds will cheer for him, in time?

Jinder Mahal is the embodiment of the classic foreign heel, packaged for the year 2017. His anti-American rants have taken him all the way to the top of the SmackDown Live ladder and made him the face of the brand.

However, Jinder Mahal feels that he may have more to offer than merely a heelish role. This is what he said to ESPN in an exclusive interview:

I am interested in seeing what other characters I could play. The evolution of a WWE character is such that things change and I can't wait to have a babyface character.

We are certain that Mahal will be the babyface when WWE comes to India for their big tour. Until then, he has bigger fish to fry as Mahal has challenged Lesnar to a Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series 2017.
