Mahal talks about appearing the 1000th RAW, the WWE travel schedule, and more...
Jinder Mahal spoke with SLAM! Wrestling for an interview and talked about his current place in the WWE and other moments in his career:
On traveling for part of the main roster and working on NXT: "I actually don't mind the travel, I am single with no family or kids so I am used to being busy. When I have a few days off I am anxious to get back to work, so doing house shows, TV and NXT hasn't really been an issue with me. I am enjoying it, I have been on the road for a little bit over a year and it hasn't been draining so far. I am sure it will become challenging as I progress but for now I am just having a blast traveling across the world, especially performing in front of the Canadian fans."
The current highlight of his career in being on the 1,000th episode of RAW and attacking Kane: "Being part of Raw 1000 in the same ring with Undertaker and Kane leading an army of young hungry wrestlers was amazing. In Birmingham, England I had a match with Tyson Kidd and Mick Foley was at ringside and delivered a socko to me at the end of the match. That was another one of those moments that if you told me I would be in the ring with Mick Foley giving me a socko I wouldn't believe you. It is those moments that make me realize what I have accomplished in my life, from humble beginnings in Stampede Wrestling to coming to FCW and making my way to the roster and sharing the ring with Undertaker, Kane and Mick Foley is just the best."
On what he hopes to accomplish in the WWE: "I am going to keep working hard to climb up the ranks of the WWE. You can catch me on Superstars on almost a weekly basis and I am making waves in NXT and want to capture that title from Seth Rollins. When I am on Raw and Smackdown I try to make the best of it. I am young, just 26 and have a great deal to offer to the WWE. I am excited to see what the future brings, the possibilities are endless."
