WWE News: The Bollywood Boyz change their names
What’s the story?
The Bollywood Boyz have reportedly changed the name of their team, with them being referred to as ‘The Singh Brothers’ on social media following their WWE main roster debut this Tuesday night on SmackDown Live.
In case you didn’t know...
Gurv and Harv Sihra are real-life brothers who have been performing on the Canadian pro-wrestling circuit since 2006 and debuted in WWE as part of the Cruiserweight Classic tournament in June of last year.
The brothers who hail from British Columbia, made their main-card debut by helping Jinder Mahal win the 6-Pack Challenge, thereby making Mahal the number-1 contender for the WWE championship.
The heart of the matter:
During the final sequence of the aforementioned 6-Pack Challenge matchup, Gurv and Harv were spotted grabbing Sami Zayn’s legs near the ring apron, which would provide the distraction and allow Jinder Mahal to capitalise and score the pinfall victory.
The commentators did initially refer to them as the Bollywood Boyz, however, if one is to go by social media posts, the Canadian-Indian duo seem to have been re-christened as The Singh Brothers.
The apparent re-christening has been reportedly accompanied by yet another tag-team name-change on the blue brand’s roster, with Primo and Epico ditching their ‘Shining Stars’ gimmick and referring to themselves as ‘The Colons’.
With the WWE giving a big push to Mahal, expect Gurv and Harv Sihra to ‘assist’ Mahal in his matches in the weeks to come. He is rumoured to lead a new stable along with the brothers and it would be interesting to see how WWE books them going forward.
J&J Security 2.0…Hmm…Maybe. Just like Seth Rollins had his two stooges in J&J, the WWE seem to be employing a similar strategy for Jinder Mahal. In my humble opinion, this seems to be a good strategy by the WWE Creative, in the sense that they can book Mahal and continue his winning ways whilst simultaneously not letting his wins be ‘clean’.
So to speak, ensuring that most of his victories come due to interference by the Singh Brothers, which in turn helps them ensure that the Superstars who may lose to Mahal don’t end up damaging their brand value too much.
The WWE’s surprising championship push of Mahal seems to have taken the professional wrestling world by surprise and with the inclusion of Gurv and Harv in the equation, things get even better for the 6’5” hulking behemoth of a man Jinder Mahal.
The Singh Brothers won’t let anyone Hinder The Jinder!
