Count Frankie Kazarian among the people that is a fan of Jinder Mahal becoming WWE Champion.
Kazarian took to Twitter to give his thoughts on the new WWE Champion and liked the way Mahal, not only carries himself as a heel, but also represents a rags-to-riches story that Kazarian can relate.
As someone with no dog in the fight, I think @JinderMahal looks and carries himself like a bad ass, bad guy wrestling champion. Works for me— Frankie Kazarian (@FrankieKazarian) May 24, 2017

Mahal took WWE by storm when he first returned to WWE last year with a completely different look and after being stuck on the low and midcard, won a six-pack challenge on SmackDown Live in April to become the No. 1 contender for the WWE title.
Mahal then further shocked the wrestling world by beating Randy Orton to win his first WWE Championship at the Backlash pay-per-view. Kazarian, a long-time veteran on the independent circuit, is a former TNA X-Division Champion and former Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion.
Now that Mahal has won the WWE Championship, his first challenge as the world champion is to defend his title against Orton in a rematch at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 18.
