QCOnline.com did an interview with WWE Champion Jinder Mahal as part of a feature on him leading up to WWE’s live event Saturday in Moline, IL. Here’s an excerpt:
“It’s a great feeling to be champion, a proud feeling I’m representing India,” said the 31-year-old native of Calgary, Alberta (born Yuvraj Singh Dhesi), son of a bus driver and nephew of wrestler Gama Singh, who’s considered a legendary villain.
“India is proud to have a WWE champion. It’s very popular there, with a large viewership,” Mr. Mahal said. “Growing up, my uncle was a huge influence on me, and who I go to advice even still now in my current position.”
The last time he wrestled in India was a year and a half ago, not under WWE, but in a battle with the Great Khali, another Indian superstar who used to perform for WWE, Mr. Mahal said. They fought in Delhi, which has a population of 19 million.
“It was amazing; we had over 60,000 people,” he said. “It was a great reception. … The fans were very passionate, very proud.”
