“The Modern Day Maharaja” had a fairly successful run in WWE

The Modern Day Maharaja, Jinder Mahal recently parted ways from WWE in the latest Smackdown episode of 19th April 2024.

He was mostly a face in WWE and won certain titles too. Returning to WWE in 2016 with a notably enhanced physique, he garnered momentum in 2017, ultimately clinching the WWE Championship as the 50th titleholder and the first of Indian heritage. His reign spanned about six months, followed by a tenure as a one-time WWE United States Champion and a two-time WWE 24/7 Champion.

Let’s have a look at all of Jinder Mahal‘s title reigns in brief and how they were planned out by WWE:

WWE Championship (2017)

On May 21, 2017, Jinder Mahal etched his name in WWE history by clinching the prestigious WWE Championship at Backlash, defeating Randy Orton in a memorable showdown. This victory marked a watershed moment, as Mahal became the first WWE Champion of Indian descent, solidifying his place in wrestling lore.

His reign, spanning an impressive 170 days, showcased his unwavering determination and exceptional skills as a top-tier competitor. However, his championship journey reached its zenith on November 7, 2017, when he encountered AJ Styles and lost the title. Despite the loss, Jinder Mahal’s WWE Championship reign remains a testament to his enduring impact on the wrestling world.

United States Championship (2018)

After relinquishing the WWE Championship, Jinder Mahal swiftly entered the United States Championship scene when Dolph Ziggler vacated the title on December 19. He navigated through an eight-man tournament, defeating Tye Dillinger and Xavier Woods but fell short against Bobby Roode in the finals. Despite setbacks, Mahal made a mark by eliminating Big E and Xavier Woods in the Royal Rumble match.

Engaging in feuds with Roode and Randy Orton, Mahal secured a triple-threat match for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 34. He emerged victorious, pinning Rusev to clinch the title. However, his reign ended abruptly at just 8 days, losing the championship to Jeff Hardy on April 16 during the Superstar Shake-up.

24/7 Championship (2019)

On June 2, Mahal seized the 24/7 Championship by pinning reigning champion R-Truth on a golf course. However, his reign was short-lived as he quickly lost the title back to Truth, courtesy of a Carmella distraction. Just four days later, Mahal regained the championship by defeating Truth on an airport tarmac, marking his second reign as the 24/7 Champion.

Nevertheless, Truth reclaimed the title hours later by pinning a dozing Jinder Mahal inside the aeroplane, showcasing the unpredictable nature of the 24/7 Championship scene.

While the Championships he won never showed how much caliber he has, we hope he gets a good place as his clause ends after 3 months. It will be interesting to see if he returns to WWE or joins AEW in the near future.
