Triple H scored a clean victory over former world champion Jinder Mahal at WWE's New Delhi show this weekend.

The Indian Express reports that the Modern Day Maharaja largely had the better of a match in which neither man was explicitly depicted as a heel.

Despite a heated social media exchange in the build-up, the pair embraced one another after the final bell and partook in a local dance custom.

Triple H, who has not fought a televised singles match since WrestleMania, was then said to have told fans that India was "in good hands" with Mahal, who graciously accepted his opponent's praise.

Elsewhere on the show, The Shield - for whom the New Delhi crowd apparently reserved their biggest reaction - triumphed over the team of Samoa Joe, Sheamus, and Cesaro.

Braun Strowman also defeated Kane via disqualification, whilst Enzo Amore retained the Cruiserweight Title in a match with Kalisto.

WWE's Indian tour was was trimmed to one date last month amid reported struggles to shift tickets for the companion show on 8 December.

As such, tonight's excursion in New Delhi - billed as a "super-show" - will be the final stop before the cast head back to the States for next week's TV tapings.
