- The New York Times wrote an article on Jinder Mahal's rise to becoming the WWE Champion by looking at what his gimmick means to not only the WWE, but in pop culture and politics, as well. The article also looks back at Great Khali and how WWE is looking to break into India. Here's an excerpt:
"Mr. Dhesi [Jinder Mahal], the first WWE champion of Indian descent, is a heel (wrestling speak for a villain), so it is his job to turn crowds into booing, angry mobs. As part of his persona, he exhorts the crowd with statements of cultural confrontation: that Americans are too clueless to realize that greatness comes from immigrants (and therefore, himself). The heated rhetoric often sounds like it would be at home on a cable news panel rather than a wrestling ring."
