You can’t hinder this man on Monday anymore. This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw opened with United States Champion Jinder Mahal joining the red brand.
General Manager Kurt Angle began the show with an announcement and was quickly interrupted by Sunil Singh.
Having just won the U.S. title at WrestleMania 34, Mahal was also the first title holder to swap brands during the Superstar Shakeup.
Immediately after crossing over to Raw, Angle put Mahal in a title match. With an open challenge laid out to the locker room, none other than Jeff Hardy answered the call.

After a back-and-forth match, Hardy countered Mahal’s finisher, hit a Twist of Fate and landed a long Swanton Bomb for the three count.
Welcome to Raw, Jinder Mahal.
