Jinder Mahal Wants To Face Drew McIntyre In A WWE Punjabi Prison Match

Will the stipulation be revived?

Jinder Mahal wants to face his former teammate Drew McIntyre in a Punjabi Prison Match. 

The former 3MB members have been feuding over the last month since Mahal stole McIntyre's sword and The Modern Day Maharaja told El Brunch de WWE that he would face Drew inside the Punjabi Prison if it was up to him.

"It's a very vicious, brutal match. The Punjabi Prison [laughs], hopefully, I don't have to do it too many times in my career because going into the Punjabi Prison, you know you're not going to be the same person when you leave. That match takes everything out of you. Great Khali was the creator of the match and then when I was in the Punjabi Prison, Great Khali surprised everyone and made his return," Jinder said.

"You know, I wouldn't mind having Drew in the Punjabi Prison. Nowhere for him to run, he can't go get steel chairs, and he can't play mind games and destroy my motorcycle. It'll be me and him locked in a cage and I'll show Drew that I'm the better WWE Superstar, I'm the better WWE Champion, and I'm going to become WWE Champion again," he continued.

"The way it's headed, I think it's headed that way. Drew, obviously -- he assaulted my lawyer, my poor lawyer had nothing to do with anything. Gave him the Claymore Kick for no reason. So, if it's up to me, I finish Drew in the Punjabi Prison at SummerSlam. I can't think of a better place."

Mahal previously competed inside the Punjabi Prison at Battleground 2017 when he defeated Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship. The stipulation was first used in 2006 when The Undertaker was scheduled to face The Great Khali at The Great American Bash. The Punjabi Playboy wasn't cleared to compete, though, and The Big Show took his place at the pay-per-view. 

Khali would compete in a Punjabi Prison match one year later when he unsuccessfully challenged Batista for the World Heavyweight Title.
