Former WWE champion Jinder Mahal wrote on Instagram that the things he keeps hearing online only motivate him to get better, clarifying that he’s fine following his loss to AJ Styles last night.
“To my haters and wrestling ‘insiders’, this was NOT an experiment, I am NOT injured, I have NOT violated the Wellness policy. So keep throwing shade my way, it only motivates me,” Mahal wrote. Many have speculated that the sudden title change was a result of either an injury or a drug test failure.
Turning his attention to AJ Styles, Mahal said that Styles was the “better man for one night.” He said that for six months he held the WWE title, defended it countless times all over the world and one day he will raise the title again.
To @ajstylesp1, you were the better man for one night. Six months I held the #WWEChampionship, defended it countless times, all over the world. I will one day raise the title again. To my haters and wrestling "insiders", this was NOT an experiment, I am NOT injured, I have NOT violated the wellness policy. So keep throwing shade my way , it only motivates me.
