Jinder Mahal thinks he can surpass one of the longest regins in modern WWE history.
He recently spoke to Sportskeeda during a promotional tour in India. He makes it pretty clear that he, or even other future champions from India, could surpass CM Punk's record of 434 days.
Absolutely think I can. Why not? I believe I haven't even entered my prime yet. So, I'm 31 years old, I'm already WWE Champion for 140 something days at the moment. I've a lengthy title run ahead of me and many more title runs yet to come.
I know there are many other WWE Champions coming from India. You know we have so much talent, so much potential and there's never been a better time. WWE is so global right now, we're representing 180 countries. We have the Performance Center. World class facility with NXT.
You have the best coaches, you have the best facility, you have multiple rings... you even have a high flying ring with the crash pad. You can try your high flying moves on. There's never been a better time than right now for being a WWE superstar.
CM Punk's record is one of the longest individual reigns in the company's history, beating every other reign since Hulk Hogan's 1984-88 run with the title.
