Jinder Mahal should be Universal Champion



Come on, you gonna tell me that doesn't look damn good? The man has something people in the business call the "IT FACTOR" He is still young, he cuts a decent promo, he's passable in the ring & he looks like a god damn megastar. Arguably the best look in the business since The Rock.

Jinder vs. Brock for the belt could be a really fun feud. Two larger than life characters who look like real life action heroes, something WWE is sorely lacking right now. I'm not saying scrap the Rollins/AJ feud, just bring the Cruiserweight belt up to Raw and let them fight for that, everybody wins. I'm not even sure if Jinder is Raw or SD, but with the WILDCARD rule it don't even matter.

Get that red belt on him ASAP.

Re: Jinder Mahal should be Universal Champion

Honestly, the dude moves, looks, and acts like a champion. He just is such a below average wrestler... I don't want to see him as a main event talent anymore. However.... he should definitely be in title contention for the secondary/tag titles.

Re: Jinder Mahal should be Universal Champion

I don't like Jinder but there's no denying he is more talented than Rollins. He shows more charisma in the picture you posted of him than Seth has shown in his entire career.

Jinder Mahal is NOT more talented nor is he more charismatic than Seth Rollins

No, it looks horrible.

The belt I mean. I still hate it to this day.

In regards to Jinder? Yeah, I'd prefer him over Rollins but I don't know if that's the direction they want to go in after the last time he was champion.

You can't just keep replying to all of these critics of Rollins with "he's not bad" followed by a smiley as if it's a outrageous statement. It's not. If you want people to change their tune on this claim, you need to provide an actual argument regarding why. Rollins is more charismatic than Jinder Mahal? Well, last I checked, Jinder had a title reign as a heel where he was actually able to command the crowd and get them to boo him. Rollins on the other hand couldn't. You need to explain why we're wrong.

Re: Jinder Mahal should be Universal Champion

As someone who kinda of sort of defended Jinder (more so in the didn't hate him camp more than actually liking him) I don't really think especially with how his last run went that he should be in the main event again. Now if he were a constant fixture in the midcard title scene rather than non existant that is something I could probably get behind to an extent cause I actually think he can do a good job in that role.

No he fucking shouldn't . His trash reign made me stop watching full SmackDowns. Let him stay in the lower midcard where he belongs



IT FUCKING HAPPENED

Re: Jinder Mahal should be Universal Champion

Jinder Mahal looked like a world champion at least. He was thrown into a spot he wasn't ready for and I don't think he did that bad tbh. He outdrew Bryan and Styles as champ for what its worth.

Oh, really? That's easy.

How about the fact that Seth Rollins literally comes out every week to (one of) the loudest babyface crowd reactions on a weekly basis, and he's been receiving the appropriate crowd responses (for a babyface) for AT LEAST a year now.

Meanwhile, Jinder Mahal can barely get any crowd reactions (or even heat) that's nearly as vocal as Rollins's crowd reactions. Hell, Rollins's pops as a babyface still eclipses the levels of heat Jinder gets as a heel anyway.

Besides, Rollins managed to get heat throughout his heel run from 2014 through mid-2016; despite plenty of fans appreciating his in-ring ability and in spite of being one of the smaller wrestlers (who don't fit Vince's fetish of larger wrestlers), which would have gave him more crowd support. Not many folks on here remember, but Rollins got boos/hate back when he was a heel. For example, Rollins came out to a HUGE ovation on the Raw episode after he returned as a heel the night before (on Extreme Rules 2016) since the crowd was so excited to see him back after being injured for several months. Rollins cut a babyface promo at first, but eventually it ended up becoming that of a heel.

By the end of that promo, Rollins managed to get the whole crowd to turn on him (EVEN while catering to them for support in the early parts of that promo) in order to get the desired heat (which is the desired crowd reaction for a heel). That promo from Rollins showed better crowd control than just about anything Jinder has done in his career (since he did it by getting a WHOLE CROWD to flip sides by turning on him; whereas Jinder has yet to do anything nearly as impressive as that).

There's another example too. Seth Rollins had that weird feud with Dean Ambrose not too long ago. Crowds could have easily supported Ambrose over Rollins since he's more charismatic than him, AND since many fans wanted to see Ambrose turn heel for YEARS too. Hell, they could have easily cheered Ambrose since he wasn't the one to betray the Shield in the first place. Crowds could have just sided with Ambrose since he had a good motive to turn on Rollins to begin with. Instead, they ended up supporting Rollins anyway because he's a good babyface who's able to connect with those fans and he's able to get loud cheers too. Ambrose trying his best with his heel work played a decent part of Rollins getting that crowd support. However, Rollins being able to connect with the crowds himself played a great part of that too.

That was a big challenge for Rollins since his history with turning on the Shield could have come back to haunt him during a time when he's supposed to get crowd support after Ambrose gave him a taste of his own medicine. Hell, the fact that Rollins is currently pretty over (for at least a year now) despite being a chickenshit heel and a villain who stabbed his brothers in the back years ago is still pretty impressive.

Jinder has yet to deal with a challenge as tough of what Rollins had to go through as a babyface. He was given a stereotypical foreign heel character that can easily draw heat. Jinder did his job fine by getting booed by the crowds as a heel (even if I'm torn on whether it's because of his talent or because they wanted him to fuck off). However, Jinder never had to deal with a huge challenge that Rollins went through with receiving the appropriate crowd reactions when his past could have prevented him from doing so. His only challenge now is to attempt to receive ANY crowd reactions as a heel since he's missed months of TV time already.

Rollins is far more charismatic than Jinder, and it's not even close. This shouldn't even be a serious question.

Edit:

For the record, this isn't even directed at you; but topics like this don't surprise me since some folks on here don't seem to understand the meaning of charisma.

Jinder did perfectly fine, he has the look, a character, can talk, he should be featured more. Maybe the IC belt.
