WWE News: Jinder Mahal's new finisher finally gets a name

An interesting new name for The Maharaja's finisher which was revealed in the latest episode of SmackDown Live.

‘Khallas’ is the name of Mahal’s new finishing move

What’s the story?

Over the past couple of weeks, Jinder Mahal has been using a modified version of the ‘Full nelson slam’, and on the most recent episode of SmackDown Live his new finisher got a new name. The Maharaja’s new move is called ‘Khallas’.

In case you didn’t know...

Jinder Mahal debuted this move when he ambushed Randy Orton after the Viper’s match against Erick Rowan. Fans have been speculating as to what the new finisher was and after close analysis, it was confirmed to be a variation of the ‘Full nelson slam’.

The heart of the matter

Jinder Mahal has slowly become one of the most popular wrestlers on the SmackDown roster thanks to his heelish antics. He has developed from being a mid-card wrestler into the #1 Contender for the WWE title.

Along with his development, it seems that ‘The Maharaja’ has developed a new finisher. This finisher is a variation of the classic wrestling move, the ‘Full nelson slam’.

The WWE Universe has been pondering on what the name of this new finisher could be. However, on the recent episode of the blue brand, commentator Tom Phillips called the move ‘Khallas’ which means ‘The end’ or ‘Finished’ in Hindi. The name is an appropriate one because of Mahal’s Indian origins.

So now fans can look forward to Mahal possibly performing the ‘Khallas’ on Randy Orton, as he prepares to face off against the ‘Apex Predator’ for the WWE title at Backlash.

What’s next?

The ‘Khallas’ will most likely be Mahal’s finisher for quite some time. Whether Mahal becomes WWE Champion at Backlash or not, it's quite clear that fans are liking this new side of Mahal and his new finisher just helps build up his character and his profile as a wrestler.

Author’s Take

Jinder Mahal has quickly established himself as a top star in the WWE and it is no surprise that his character needed a new look and a new move. That is why he started using a variation of the ‘Full nelson slam’.

However, that is all it is, a variation and even if it has a new name like ‘Khallas’ it doesn’t change the fact that it isn’t really anything special, despite all the hype.
