Has The Modern Day Maharaja's luck come to a halt?

What's the story?

As reported by The Dirty Sheets via our "DS Breaking News" YouTube video (attached below), the WWE may be done with the WWE Title reign of Jinder Mahal. They may also be putting less emphasis on their plans to exploit the huge population of India.


In case you didn't know

Jinder shocked the world when he won the WWE Championship at Backlash in May by defeating Randy Orton. We correctly reported this in our SK Exclusive.

The heart of the matter 

As things stand, the WWE is planning to take the WWE Championship off Jinder Mahal in the near future, with a cash-in by Baron Corbin imminent on whomever successfully dethrones Mahal. 

What's next?

Jinder Mahal defeated Randy Orton at Battleground with the help of a returning Great Khali. His next challenger is yet to be determined. We'll likely find out his Summerslam challenger this coming episode on SmackDown Live

Author's Take

Many thought that Jinder would receive a lengthy run with WWE's plans to grow in India being at the forefront of people's minds. However, The Dirty Sheets learned several weeks ago that despite its huge population, the money making opportunities are fairly limited. The WWE has since entered into a partnership with Lagardère Sports as its international sponsorship sales agency, who immediately announced a deal with SuperSport, the premier sports broadcaster in Africa.
