It's been months since Jinder Mahal was last seen on WWE television but as his former 3MB stablemate Drew McIntyre will tell you, he'll be back and better than ever.
McIntyre, fresh off his Royal Rumble victory at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, spoke about the latest on Mahal and his whereabouts, given that he has yet to wrestle for WWE in 2020. McIntyre mentioned Mahal's return to WWE in 2016 with a vastly improved physique, eventually winning the WWE Championship in 2017.
“He came back and made himself WWE Champion and he's so driven right now. He’s about to come back and you’re going to see a whole new Jinder Mahal as well. You saw the new Drew McIntyre win the Rumble, wait till you see the new Jinder Mahal that’s coming back,” McIntyre told The Bump.

Mahal last wrestled in June 2019 and was last seen on WWE programming in a brief feud with R-Truth for the 24/7 Championship, winning the belt twice. Mahal also captured the United States Championship in at WrestleMania 34 in 2018, but lost the title a week later.
Mahal has been teasing a return on Instagram after being sidelined for months with a ruptured patella tendon.
