Jinder Mahal made a surprise appearance on NXT last night during the New Year’s Evil themed episode and attacked The Creed Brothers.
Mahal, who aligned with Sanga, took out the Creeds during an in-ring segment after their match against Indus Sher did not take place as Veer was not there. Sanga offered to wrestle them in a handicap match but before they got an answer, the former WWE champion attacked from behind.
“Veer and Sanga fight with respect…but I don’t,” said Mahal. Later in the broadcast, Mahal wrestled Julius Creed in a one-on-one match and came out victorious.
The 36-year-old was part of Florida Championship Wrestling before it was changed to NXT. He has not appeared on WWE television since mid-November of last year.
