Bollywood Boyz: We Thought We'd Get A Run When Jinder Mahal Was WWE Champion

The Bollywood Boyz (Samir & Sunil Singh) didn't wrestle much while Jinder Mahal was WWE Champion in 2017, but they still took plenty of bumps.

By going the extra mile as the managers for Mahal, the Singh brothers thought they would get an extra opportunity in the ring.

"When Jinder got the title, we felt like [we would work more] but it never happened and we felt strung along for a little bit. I got hurt for a few months with a torn ACL. Other than that, we were just waiting and thought we'd get that run," said Samir on Pro Wrestling 4 Life with Sean Waltman.

After Mahal lost the title the brothers worried for their future.

"When Jinder dropped the title, we were looking over our shoulders and thought, 'is this it for us?'" said Samir. "For three straight years, we still got booked. I remember Michael Hayes sitting us down when my brother was injured and he was like, 'We applaud you for everything you've done and you work hard so we'll keep you going with Jinder and we'll get you in tag matches and do six-man matches.' When my brother was out, I wasn't sure what they would do with me, but they kept us going because they appreciated the work we were doing."

The Bollywood Boyz became regulars on 205 Live after their run with Mahal ended before they were released by the company on June 25.
