Jinder Mahal has proposed an interesting stipulation for a match with Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam on August 21.
At Money in the Bank, Jinder Mahal interfered in the men’s ladder match to attack McIntyre. Mahal has now revealed that he wants to face McIntyre at SummerSlam in a Punjabi Prison match.
Speaking on El Brunch De WWE, Mahal recalled the history of the unique bout. Discussing what he’d do if it was up to him, Mahal said:
“It’s a very vicious, brutal match. The Punjabi Prison (laughs), hopefully, I don’t have to do it too many times in my career because going into the Punjabi Prison, you know you’re not going to be the same person when you leave. That match takes everything out of you. Great Khali was the creator of the match and then when I was in the Punjabi Prison, Great Khali surprised everyone and made his return.
“You know, I wouldn’t mind having Drew in the Punjabi Prison. Nowhere for him to run, he can’t go get steel chairs, and he can’t play mind games and destroy my motorcycle. It’ll be me and him locked in a cage and I’ll show Drew that I’m the better WWE Superstar, I’m the better WWE Champion, and I’m going to become WWE Champion again.
“The way it’s headed, I think it’s headed that way. Drew, obviously — he assaulted my lawyer, my poor lawyer had nothing to do with anything. Gave him the Claymore Kick for no reason. So, if it’s up to me, I finish Drew in the Punjabi Prison at SummerSlam. I can’t think of a better place.”
Mahal won the third ever Punjabi Prison match at Battleground 2017, defeating Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship. McIntyre held the WWE Title more recently, losing the gold to The Miz at Elimination Chamber 2021.
On tonight’s (July 2) episode of Monday Night Raw, Goldberg will confront the current WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley, ahead of SummerSlam.
