Mahal's six-month reign as WWE champion came to an end on the November 7 episode of SmackDown Live, when he was defeated by A.J. Styles in the main event. WWE gave the following comments about the change... Triple H is a HUGE match, even without the championship. Jinder Mahal accepted the challenge on his own Twitter account. There had been two events scheduled for New Delhi on December 8th and December 9th but now there will be a "Supershow" on December 8th.
The WWE's biggest overseas fanbase arguably resides in India and South Asia. Initially it looked like Jinder Mahal may stage his first WWE Championship title defence against Kevin Owens.
Needless to say, this match is happening, and it should be an entertaining one for the fans live in attendance. There are some who agree that Mahal vs Brock Lesnar simply wasn't as big a draw as it needs to be for a pay-per-view like Survivor Series.
You've gotta read this:Will Hulk Hogan Return To WWE At The Raw 25th Anniversary Show? But since then, The Modern Day Maharaja has lost his belt to AJ Styles. Triple H doesn't put on his wrestling boots very often and only challenges people that he thinks is worthy. I'm hoping the match gets televised since Mahal vs.
It remains to be seen if WWE will be broadcasting the Indian tour on the WWE Network. It's a nice treat for the fans in India to see a legend like Triple H in action.
