During the promo, Jinder seemed pretty confident about retaining his title against the “King of Strong Style” after having already beaten him last month, during Nakamura's Summerslam debut.

In case you didn’t know…

The rivalry between Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura started in August when Nakamura defeated John Cena on an episode of Smackdown Live to become the #1 contender for the WWE Title. Nakamura would then go on to face Mahal at Summerslam earlier this year but would eventually fail to dethrone “The Modern Day Maharaja”.

However, in early September the former NXT Champion defeated Randy Orton and once again earned another shot at the WWE Title this time at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Nakamura and Jinder will once again battle each other in a singles contest at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

The heart of the matter 

During a recent video posted by WWE on their official twitter handle, Jinder Mahal seemed more than confident about the fact that he would walk out of Detroit still as the WWE Champion. Mahal cut a promo on Nakamura where he claimed that “The Artist” would realize why the Modern Day Maharaja was the greatest WWE Champion of all time.

The WWE champ also said that he would focus on WWE’s upcoming India tour all set to take place in December after defeating Nakamura. “The Maharaja” added another bold statement, claiming that he would also walk in and out of India as the WWE Champion.

What’s next?

Jinder Mahal will defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura on at WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 on October 09, 2017. The Indo-Canadian Superstar is currently a -200 favourite to retain his crown.

Author’s take

Personally, I believe that Jinder Mahal has been a terrible WWE champ, and I definitely want to see this experiment end as soon as possible. However, WWE may have him retain the title because of their upcoming tour of India — even if it curtails Shinsuke Nakamura's momentum.
