Hulk Hogan Thinks Jinder Mahal Can Be The 'New Generation Hulk Hogan'
The Hulkster believes JinderMania could run wild, brother!
WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has endorsed former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal via a post on his Instagram page.
The Hulkster posted a picture of himself with the Modern Day Maharaja at Hogan's Beach Shop in Clearwater Beach, Florida, writing:
"The old school respect with the new school #JinderMahal physicality, he’s a bad man brother, with the right push he could be the new generation Hulk Hogan, he’s got it all brother!!!!"
Mahal initially signed with WWE in early 2010, with his most notable role being as a member of the Three Man Band stable, before he was released in June of 2014.
He re-signed with WWE in the summer of 2016 and subsequently received a considerable push, culminating in him winning the WWE Title from Randy Orton at Backlash 2017.
The win made him the first WWE Champion of Indian descent.
He lost the title to AJ Styles on the November 7, 2017 episode of SmackDown. Since then, his fortunes have varied as he has switched brands and dealt with injuries.
Of late, he has mainly been used to put over others, recently losing quick matches to the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and Drew McIntyre.
