This evening , just two weeks after the WWE Great Balls of Fire, will take place WWE Battleground (2017) , the next big exclusive event of SmackDown. A few weeks ago, ticket sales did not augur a success for the show, perhaps because the cartel has several fights already seen or perhaps because of the little attraction that the American public Punjabi Prison has. Through SUPER STRUGGLES you will be able to check firsthand if the blue mark gets out of its rut .
Jinder Mahal has a litmus test regarding his reign and continuity as a stellarist, facing Randy Orton for the third timein PPV. Yesterday, the fighter was interviewed by USA Today Sports for the promotion of Battleground, and left his impressions on the type of fight that will maintain with “The Viper” :
“My first impression was, ‘man, this is huge.’ I would say it is the most dangerous fight in WWE history . I’ve seen Hell in a Cell; I’ve seen the Elimination Chamber. This surpasses them all. This fight is made for beasts and that is exactly what we have to become Randy and me. I’m sure we will not disappoint. Let’s steal the show … The risk is high, just like the prize, because the prize is the WWE Championship.
When the prison comes down, I think it’s my home and I embrace my home. That’s the mentality I have in there. When I’m out there, I’m in a different mental state. I really become the Maharaja of Modern Times. This is my combat, this is my structure, this is my stipulation, this is my kingdom “.
It seems that Jinder is confident that he will hold the title for a long time, and does not hide his future desires inside WWE:
“I know what it means to be a champion. When you are a WWE Champion, you are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You have to do interviews, you have to make appearances. You are recognized wherever you go. On a normal night, you have to fight at the star event level. It is what it takes to be a WWE Champion and what it takes to remain a WWE Champion. I want to do all those things because I want to be the face of the company. I want to be the guy, the guy that people pay to see, the guy who stars PPVs . I want to open Raw and SmackDown. It’s my goal and I work harder and harder to stay in this position. “
Mahal also echoed the rumors that place him against John Cena under WWE SummerSlam (2017) , a duel dreamed by the gladiator himself :
“He (Cena) is the greatest of this generation. I am the future. And I think I have not fully exploited. I need to settle. To beat someone like John Cena at an event like SummerSlam would be great . “
Finally, the Canadian spoke of his old teammate Drew McIntyre and his stage in 3MB :
“I know Drew is very motivated ; Is launched and focused. He took it very personally when he was fired from WWE. He took the mission to prove that he is the best in the world and I really think he is one of the best fighters in the world. It’s an animal. I’m sure he will be NXT Champion and sure to be future world champion , either from the Universal Championship or from my championship …
At some point, maybe not too long, there will be a 3MB meeting . I had a great time with 3MB. I learned many things. That’s one of the things to be in WWE, to keep you relevant, you have to be continuously evolving. All three of us have evolved and now I’m WWE Champion. “
