Former WWE Champion – that still sounds weird, right? – Jinder
Mahal is set for a spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery earlier this
The Modern Day Maharaja took to his Instagram page to reveal
that he’s gone under the knife to fix a ruptured patella tendon and seemingly to get an ongoing knee issue checked out:
Following the injury occurring at a SmackDown house show
bout against Ali, Mahal headed to Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Centre
over in Birmingham, Alabama; Dr Andrews and his facility having famously been used by a
multitude of wrestlers over the years.
While this is certainly a blow for Jinder, there was some
more positive news for the hulking superstar earlier this week when it was
reported that he has signed a new five-year contract with the WWE.
Despite embarking on a six-month reign as WWE Champion only
two years, Mahal has recently been chasing around after R-Truth’s
24/7 Championship. No matter how you look at it, that’s one mighty fall from
grace. Then again, many are still scratching their head at how Jinder ended up
as WWE Champ in the first place.
