Jinder Mahal’s dream match is The Rock, and he thinks it can actually happen one day

From his interview with Sportskeeda:

“I think The Rock would be my perfect pick just because he’s such a huge Superstar and growing up he was one of my favourites, you know he was my idol. Just everything – from the way he spoke to his fashion sense to his style in the ring – you know he was a very fierce competitor. He was very strong and was always in tremendous shape and great on the microphone, very entertaining. So that would be my dream opponent of all time, to work a programme with the Rock. You know I think it’s still possible and can happen one day. He likes to come back to the WWE every once in a while. I think it’s a real chance that the opportunity can come to fruition.”

Jinder Mahal is arguably the biggest surprise of 2017, a man who went from the bottom to the top in what felt like a week. He’s currently the WWE champion and will likely headline his second straight SmackDown Live pay-per-view against Randy Orton. Will he be able to sustain this success? That’s hard to say.

Has he gotten himself over enough that he could feasibly work a program with The Rock? Probably not. But maybe we shouldn’t underestimate him. After all, you wouldn’t have thought he could be where he is right now.

So why not?
