Jinder Mahal reflects on his recent run in NXT.
During the 2023 WWE Draft, Jinder Mahal and Indus Sher (Veer Mahaan & Sanga) were drafted to Monday Night Raw. Before being drafted, Mahal, Mahaan, & Sanga were all featured talent on the NXT brand.
Mahal's run in NXT lasted about four months before he was brought back to the main roster. In a new interview with WWE's After The Bell podcast, Mahal went into detail about his run in NXT and how it inspired him.
"It was incredible, just being around young energy again, young and motivated superstars. It inspired me. It pushed me in a way, just seeing these young people that are full of hopes, dreams, and aspirations. We get a little bit grizzled and grumpy, it does happen. I felt reinvigorated and being around Indus Sher, those two guys are megastars in my eyes. They can do everything. They have every aspect of the game down, from look to persona. Veer has explosive and powerful moves. Sanga is a mountain, so powerful and calculated. Those two are incredible. Standing and watching ringside, or teaming with them when the time comes, those guys having my back when it’s my turn in the ring. [Being in NXT] was incredible. I learned a lot. I worked with Terry Taylor and Shawn Michaels and all the great coaches there."
