WWE News: Mahal’s Frustration with Being Sidelined

Mahal voiced his frustration, particularly noting how other superstars like CM Punk, Seth Rollins, and Cody Rhodes are often in the limelight, overshadowing his accomplishments.

“I feel great, but at the same time I feel a little offended,” Mahal stated. He highlighted his role in nurturing the next generation, focusing on Indus Sher, yet feeling sidelined in the process.

The Struggle for Recognition

The struggle for recognition in WWE is not new, but Mahal’s case is particularly poignant.

He pointed out the lack of his presence in WWE promotional materials, including PLE posters and touring trucks, questioning when was the last time the ‘Modern Day Maharaja’ was featured prominently.
