Jeet Rama thinks now is the time for WWE to change how they portray Indian wrestlers.

The released star spoke passionately about the subject during a recent interview with Sportskeeda. At one point, Rama openly questioned why WWE feels the need to consistently cast Indian workers as heels. His exact wording was, "Why are we only presented as villains? Why do they have to behave in such a manner that the audience there insults them and boos them?".

Rama did admit that the company are only doing "what they think is right from a business perspective", but their attitude towards the tired "foreign menace" stereotype really bugs him.

Jeet perhaps summed it all up when he revealed: "My soul couldn’t come to peace with the fact that I was making money by misrepresenting my country".

He recalled being at a WWE show in Delhi and seeing everyone in attendance jeering Jinder Mahal. That also bothered him, because he figured Jinder should be presented as a hero to his people. The "compromise" Indian stars have to make in WWE is a "weakness" Rama wants to eradicate.

He's sick of the way things are.
