Report: Jinder Mahal Signs A New Five-Year Deal With WWE

Jinder Mahal inks a new multi-year deal with WWE.

With the recent report that Mojo Rawley signed a new multi-year deal with WWE, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that the "Modern Day Maharajah" Jinder Mahal has signed a new deal with the sports-entertainment company that is five years in length.

In 2017, Jinder Mahal was reintroduced on WWE TV and went on to capture the WWE Championship from Randy Orton at Backlash and Mahal held onto the title until November of that year. The 32-year old Mahal was last in action on June 15th at a WWE live event in Denver where he fell in defeat to Ali.

Earlier this month, Jinder Mahal became WWE 24/7 Champion by defeating R-Truth on an airport tarmac. Mahal would later lose the title back to Truth as they were on a flight to Saudi Arabia for WWE's Super ShowDown event. Jinder Mahal has tallied up a total of nine years in WWE and per report, he will be spending the next five years of his career with the company as well.
