Jinder Mahal talks losing the WWE Championship
During an appearance on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Jinder Mahal spoke at length about losing the WWE Championship to AJ Styles last November.
Here is an excerpt from the interview courtesy of Gerweck.net:
“When I lost the WWE Title to AJ Styles right before Survivor Series I wasn’t worried at all. A lot of people say it’s disappointing you got the push, I say I didn’t get the push, I made the push. I believe 100% that every superstar is in charge of their destiny. I lost the Title yeah but I lost it to AJ Styles, one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step in a ring. I feel I really did win in the end. I had an awesome outing, came back and got a hug from Vince McMahon.
I was wrestling Darren Young like every week on Superstars or Main Event, I wasn’t even on Raw or Smackdown every week. Now I’m in the US Title picture, that’s not a demotion from my perspective. I’m still on Smackdown, I’m still wrestling on live events. It’s up to me to maintain on that level of performance. If I fall down the card it’s on me. 100% on me. If I’m staying at this level I will be WWE Champion again. I firmly believe that.”

Mike Kanellis tweets out personal story
WWE star Mike Kanellis tweeted out a very personal story on Saturday about moving into his first house with his wife WWE star Maria Kanellis.
In 2012, after an independent show, I watched @MariaLKanellis cry herself to sleep, because we literally had no money to eat, couldn’t even order a pizza. On Wednesday we move into our new house, our first house. Never stop dreaming, never give up, trust the process!
