Backstage Plans for the WWE Title in December; Mahal Denies Rumor
Monday, November 13, 2017
According to backstage reports, there are no plans at the moment for Jinder Mahal to win the WWE Title back before Survivor Series, though it is possible that he could win it back before WWE's tour of India next month. Another alternative is to have AJ Styles added to the tour, change the title there and then set up a rematch between the two at the December Clash of Champions PPV in Boston. WWE Clash of Champions was where they were originally supposed to wrestle first.
It is unclear at the moment in which current storyline does Jinder Mahal fit into, though he has publicly denied any injury and has also refuted rumors that he has failed a drug test. It has been reported that his shoulder has been slightly banged up, but he has been working through it and he obviously hasn't failed any tests as he remains active in the ring.
