Jinder Mahal Backlash 2017

After dipping his toes in the professional wrestling world, Mahal felt that before committing fully it might be a good idea to head to university and get himself some qualifications, a fallback in case the dream didn't come to fruition.

Mahal went to the University of Calgary, the same uni as former Canadian Prime Minister Steve Harper and astronaut Robert Thisk - the man who has spent the longest time in space. Mahal graduated with a business degree in communications and culture.

He wrestled all the way through his time in education, and when his studies were finished it was on the road which he followed.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved.
