The three Indian-born Superstars reappeared on a WWE main show for the first time since the Superstar Spectacle special on January 26. Dilsher Shanky joined Giant Zanjeer, Rey Mysterio, and Ricochet in their on-camera debut to defeat Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, King Corbin, and Shinsuke Nakamura. On the other hand, Shanky was part of Indus Sher’s victory with Drew McIntyre against the team of Jinder Mahal and The Bollywood Boyz.
Jinder Mahal’s Return Was Anticipated At WWE Main Event
The moment seen moments ago in RAW is very similar to what happened in the last transmissions of WWE Main Event . Jinder Mahal returned on the secondary show to face Jeff Hardy. The last moments of that combat saw Rinku and Veer helping Mahal to obtain victory. This is not the first time that the company has used its exclusive WWE Network program for creative testing. In the past we saw Jaxson Ryker making his comeback as Elias’ partner at the Main Event prior to his first appearance on Monday Night RAW.
