Jinder Mahal was recently a guest on the Talk is Jericho podcast hosted by Chris Jericho. He spoke on a wide variety of topics about his wrestling career. We previously covered Vince McMahon changing Jinder’s gimmick at the last moment.
Jinder also spoke about his relationship with Vince and how it has grown since returning to WWE.
He would say that he would avoid Vince during his previous run with WWE:
“I’ve become closer with Vince. It was weird, during my first run, and even when I was on 3MB, I would kind of like avoid Vince. Not avoid him, but he’s intimidating. Now, I have like a good relationship with him.”
How good? Vince McMahon is apparently writing all of Jinder’s promos. This includes helping him with some house show stuff:
“I said Vince, please, every single live event, can I please say a promo, he said, yeah sure, and went and told Michael Hayes: Jinder promo. I checked my email and noticed a script for house show promos, which I have never had before. Even then, a day later, extra notes came from Vince. I feel prepared this time for it because if it happened early in my career—Vince knows what he is doing”
Jericho on the podcast mentioned that if Vince himself is writing your stuff, that is a good sign since he is invested in you. Looks like the push of Jinder could be just beginning.
