Regardless of the outcome it was one of the greatest nights of my life. Hats off to @TripleH, nothing but respect. @wweindia- The Maharaja (@JinderMahal) December 9, 2017Jinder Mahal had been very vocal about the respect her has for the veteran, calling it the biggest match of his career facing Triple H.”It’s a great feeling and as soon as I touch down, the Indian people, our fans, the WWE Universe here show us so much love, passion that I cannot wait to feel it when I have the biggest match of my career against Triple H,” had said Jinder in an exclusive chat with indiatoday.in before the match.”He’s a legend. The Game, The King of Kings and I need this match to test myself. I need to see how far I’ve come. I need to test myself against the measuring stick. That is The Game Triple H. I need this match, not only to prove to myself but also the WWE Universe that I am the greatest WWE champion of all time,” he had added. (Exclusive: Jinder Mahal may consider cricket as career option after retiring from WWE)Triple H had said, “I think that it is awesome that I am coming back to India after all this time, It’s the fan base in India , its second to none. Looking forward to performing in front of them, to stand in the ring with an Indian talent in Jinder Mahal.  When I was in Mumbai, when people asked me about Jinder Mahal,  I said he has earned my respect. Jinder was in WWE before, left when things didn’t go the way he wanted. He is back now and he has worked extremely hard. But when he steps into the ring with me, it’s a different story. My job will be to teach  him a lesson of what it is like to face hell. He has to learn how to face defeat and come back from it. If he wants to earn my respect in India, he will fight and the Singh brothers will stay away.  It will just be Jinder Mahal and The Game  and we will see who the better man is,” in an exclusive chat with indiatoday.in before the fight.The two had been engaged in an promo battle on social media, exchanging in verbal volleys to hype up them match.advertisementWhen you step into the ring on December 9th @JinderMahal…I will teach you there is only ONE king. @WWEIndia pic.twitter.com/i5rZQNMjEI- Triple H (@TripleH) November 29, 2017.@WWEIndia…@JinderMahal…I only have one question for you… pic.twitter.com/LhNmfmES8J- Triple H (@TripleH) November 12, 2017.@TripleH not only the biggest match in Indian History, but also of my career.
