Author's take

I'm very interested in seeing how this match will play out. At this point, I'm going back and forth trying to figure out who is going to win this match, but right now I'm leaning towards Mahal winning in his home country.

The rise of Jinder Mahal over the past year has been tremendous, and he was able to have a nice lengthy run with the WWE Championship.
