The WWE’s biggest overseas fan base arguably resides in India and South Asia. It is hence understandable that the wrestling entertainment stable is headed to India for two shows to be held on December 8 and December 9. Initially it looked like Jinder Mahal may stage his first WWE Championship title defence against Kevin Owens. But since then, The Modern Day Maharaja has lost his belt to AJ Styles. Triple H then challenged Jinder Mahal to a match and the latter accepted. The match between the two will hence be the headline event. Here are the matches that will be featured in New Delhi’s Thyagaraj Stadium on December 8 and 9.
The Triple H had said in a video that he was asked a number of times during his recent visit to Mumbai as to when he will return to the ring. He then said that he will make a return if India and Jinder Mahal are ready to see him. Jinder Mahal replied and, in a rare moment of humility, said that it is an “honour” for him that Triple H would consider him an opponent but then warned that he may not be able to defeat Mahal in front of his own people in New Delhi.
Here is the list of matches that will be played in New Delhi:
Jinder Mahal vs Triple H
The Shield: Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose vs. Samoa Joe and RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus
Braun Strowman vs. Kane
Finn Bálor vs Bray Wyatt
RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks
Jason Jordan vs Elias
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore vs. Kalisto
Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neil vs Gallows and Anderson
Jeet Rama and Kishan Rafter vs The Miztourage.
