Vince Russo Not a Fan of Taking the Belt Off Jinder Mahal

Posted By James Walsh on 11/11/17




In the latest edition of his The Brand podcast (via Give Me Sport), Vince Russo said he thinks that WWE made a mistake in taking the WWE title off of Jinder Mahal, who he thinks will now go back to the midcard.

He said: “I don’t understand for the life of me why you would put the belt on somebody for six months, and then take it off of them without really rising their stock, making them the main-eventers that they should have been, and probably now letting them stumble back into the sea of mediocrity.”

AJ Styles beat Mahal on this past Tuesday’s episode of Smackdown and will now go on to Survivor Series to face RAW Universal champion Brock Lesnar. It’s unknown what WWE’s plans for Mahal are at the event since John Cena was announced as the final member of Team Smackdown.
