What does The Game think about The Modern Day Maharaja?

What's the story?

The Modern Day Maharaja is on top of the world as WWE Champion. WWE's COO and sports entertainment icon, Triple H recently spoke to The National about how Jinder Mahal has earned his respect. He also hyped the fact WWE fans should be expecting to see many Indian Superstars, in the days to come.

In case you didn't know...

Jinder Mahal has an impressive record under his belt as WWE Champion. But it wasn't always winning and grinning for Jinder Mahal. He was once frustrated with his position in WWE and was previously released after a string of putting other talents over.

But this high-point of Mahal's career is reinforced by people finally realizing the power of the Modern Day Maharaja.

The heart of the matter

Triple H explained how Jinder Mahal has earned his respect. The Modern Day Maharaja was once a member of 3MB. But as entertaining as Mahal was alongside Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre, and Hornswoggle his release from WWE in 2014 gave him time to revitalize not only his character but himself as well.

“Jinder Mahal has done an amazing job in re-creating himself. Jinder was in WWE for the first time and wasn’t as successful as he would have wanted. But we went back and re-energized himself, dug deeper (within) himself and worked extremely hard in his second chance and is now making the most of it. People can criticise him, but he has earned my respect.”

Triple H also went on to explain how Jinder Mahal won't be the only big Indian Superstar very soon. WWE has been doing their homework and have handpicked eleven Indian talents who will be coming into the company very soon. The WWE COO said they are training their next generation of WWE Superstars and it looks like it will be a generation with the most Indian influence yet.

What's next?

As time marches on, people will be seeing even more of an accentuation of the "world" part of WWE's name. There are plenty of amazing athletes around the globe and WWE wants to give them a try. Vince McMahon and company also wouldn't mind having a bit of that sweet business from around the globe as well.

Author's take

It's awesome WWE is giving so many amazing athletes from overseas a chance. It adds variety and the various styles can often mesh together to create something quite spectacular. But in the end, it's about what drive most people: money and control.

Not only is it nice for WWE to expand their Universe across the globe and create new fans with bank accounts, but they also want to set the standard in professional wrestling across the globe. If another promotion wants to move in on a market which might not be tapped into, they have to spend the money in order to match a fraction of WWE's untouchable production quality.

It's an intelligent move all around and will pay off in great dividends soon enough. WWE is planning for their future which is a practice that is always a wise investment.
