Jinder Mahal spoke with the Ottawa Citizen on a number of wrestling topics. Here are some highlights:
His release from WWE in 2014:
"I had a lot of regrets. I felt like I didn't give it my all. I said, if I ever get a second chance I'll do everything in my power. I'll give it 110 percent. I've taken full advantage of that opportunity. I was working hard to become WWE champion, but now that I am WWE champion, I'm putting in even more work."
Calgary pride and bringing the WWE Championship back:
"Calgary prides itself on being a wrestling town. I was very proud to bring the championship back to Calgary. It's a huge deal for not only my family, but Calgary as a city."
Proud of his Indian heritage:
"Every day is a blessing in WWE, and I keep reminding myself of that. That's my character. I'm very proud of my Indian heritage; I'm very proud of my Canadian heritage, as well, and I think, when the time is right, we'll show that side, too. But, right now, I'm having fun representing the 1.3 billion people of India."
