Jinder Mahal says his body comes from hard work.
After a couple years away from WWE, Mahal came back with a noticeably more muscular and vascular body. The commentators would say Mahal insisted on being called "Hard Body Mahal." His new physique apparently has garnered some negative attention, because on his Instagram Mahal addressed comments he has received about how he got into such great shape. He said he has been accused of having an "unnatural advantage."
#TBT to a few weeks ago, no idea exactly when or where... Anyone else on the roster have veins in their abs ??... And of course I'll get a hundred "steroid" or "wellness" comments .... I've been tested multiple times since coming back, and have never once in over 6 years with WWE had any issues. Follow my IG stories or my SnapChat and you can see that no one is out-training me, and no one is out-dieting me.
As he said in his post, both his snapchat and Instagram feature him at the gym daily, sometimes multiple times in a day. Since returning to WWE, Mahal has been seen on WWE television on several occasions, he had a short lived tag team with Rusev and has competed on pay-per-view. Before he left he was a part of the bumbling faction 3 Man Band with Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre. A recent Instagram post by Mahal was welcoming McInttyre back to WWE.
Fightful Wrestling will be covering Raw on Monday, where Mahal is a roster member. He may be moved to Smackdown as a result of the Superstar Shakeup.
