WWE News: Jinder Mahal accepts Triple H's challenge
A huge match has now been confirmed for WWE's Live tour in India, next month.
What’s the story?
Earlier today WWE COO and former World Champion Triple H laid out an offer to Jinder Mahal by challenging “The Modern Day Maharaja” to a one-on-one match at the upcoming WWE Live tour in India.
Mahal would go on and respond to Triple H and accept the challenge, via his official Twitter handle and thus confirming this mega-match between the two men.
In case you didn’t know…
Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal was originally scheduled to defend his title next month, when WWE Live heads towards the city of Delhi, India, on the 8th and 9th of December.
Mahal’s title challenger for the India tour would’ve been non-other than “The Prizefighter” Kevin Owens, but this past week on Smackdown Live “The Maharaja” would put his championship on the line against AJ Styles and end up losing both the match and his title against “The Phenomenal One”, who put an end to Mahal’s reign at 170 days.
The heart of the matter
Earlier today, Triple H would take to his social media and send out a message to Mahal, challenging him to a match in India on December 9th, the second day of the India tour.
Mahal would accept The Game's challenge on Twitter and said that he is honoured that Triple H considered him as an opponent for the India tour. However, The Maharaja would also warn Triple H and claimed that he is simply going to be unstoppable when he has the support of his own people, in the country of India.
Following this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view, WWE will head to India for the first time in two years where Jinder Mahal will faceoff against “The King of Kings” and fourteen-time World Champion Triple H.
Despite already having beaten the likes of Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Randy Orton in the past, this will be Mahal’s toughest challenge up to date as he prepares to go to war against Triple H.
Personally, I am excited to see how this match between Mahal and Triple H plays out, this will be the first time the two men will go head-to-head in singles competition and it is surely going to be a historic moment, due to it taking place in India.
