The WWE champion has made it clear that he wants his next challenger to be none other than the Universal champion.
Jinder Mahal on Smackdown Live tonight came out for a promo, with the intention of challenging someone at Survivor Series next month. He said he wanted to prove he was the most dominant champion in WWE right now, and there's only one way to do that...officially challenge the beast himself, Brock Lesnar.
It was announced later that Brock Lesnar would respond to Jinder Mahal's challenge on Raw next Monday.
Dave Meltzer reported on the Wrestling Observer website a few days ago that the plan for Survivor Series was a one on one match between the two champions, with neither title on the line.
After saying that he has beaten all the top challengers for his title, AJ Styles came out to interrupt, basically saying that he hadn't faced him yet. Mahal reiterated that he's faced all worthy challengers on Smackdown Live. After a bit more back and forth between one another, Styles attacked Mahal and sent him reeling.
Survivor Series will take place in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center on November 19. NXT Takeover is taking place the night before, bringing back War Games after a 19 year absence.
