WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently spoke with SportsKeeda, and below are some interview highlights:
You will be a part of Starrcade very soon. Were you a WCW fan at the time, and who were some of your favourite WCW superstars?
Jinder Mahal: “Yeah, I was actually a big WCW fan, but not at the time when the first Starrcade happened. But I later on became a huge WCW fan at the time of nWo. During the Monday Night Wars, I was definitely a big WCW fan.
Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Buff Bagwell, Big Poppa Pump. I was a big fan of the Cruiserweight Division — guys like Juventud Guerrera. We actually have a great Cruiserweight Division of our own with 205 Live.”

Who’s your dream opponent for WrestleMania 34?
Jinder Mahal: “Brock Lesnar — that would be amazing. Or someone like John Cena. Even John Cena’s such a big, big star here in India it would be a blockbuster match. Especially if I beat someone like John Cena, I would really establish my own legacy, which is my number 1 goal.”
You’ve surpassed many greats during your WWE Championship reign. Do you think you can beat CM Punk’s 434-day record?
Jinder Mahal: “Absolutely think I can. Why not? I believe I haven’t even entered my prime yet. So, I’m 31 years old, I’m already WWE Champion for 140 something days at the moment. I’ve a lengthy title run ahead of me and many more title runs yet to come.
I know there are many other WWE Champions coming from India. You know we have so much talent, so much potential and there’s never been a better time. WWE is so global right now, we’re representing 180 countries. We have the Performance Center. World class facility with NXT.”
