Jinder Mahal: Veer & Shanky Can Be Champions In WWE

Mahal sees a bright future for Veer and Shanky

Jinder Mahal returned to WWE TV in May with two new allies by his side in Veer and Shanky. 

The two big men have continued to accompany The Modern Day Maharaja to the ring for his matches but the faction will be broken up on October 22 as Jinder and Shanky were drafted to Friday Night SmackDown while Veer will remain on Monday Night Raw.

Speaking with Fightful, Jinder Mahal revealed how the faction came together before he tipped Veer and Shanky to be champions in WWE one day.

"I just saw the potential in them. So, when I was doing my rehab I went to the Performance Center. That's actually where I seen them. So, when I came back I pitched it to Vince [McMahon], Bruce Prichard. I thought this pairing would be good, not only for myself on a character point, but it's good for those guys to be around the system, around the locker room, around the matches, having matches against a guy like a Drew McIntyre. People more experienced than them. I definitely see them as being champions one day in the WWE," Mahal said.
