In a recent interview with WWE India, Jinder Mahal was asked about the possibility of facing Drew McIntyre for his title. The Modern Day Maharaja said he is not afraid to step up and confront his friendBecause when titles are at stake, friendships can be put aside.
“Absolutely, you know that Drew McIntyre is a very good friend of mine. You know, he’s almost like my brother, but let’s not forget that he has the WWE Championship. So, friendships aside, business is business. Championships are championships. Legacy is legacy and he is a two-time WWE Champion.
“I would like to become, not just a two-time WWE Champion, but a three, four, ten-time WWE Champion, and even beyond that. Sometimes you have to put friends aside and what happens in the ring happens in the ring”.
