    Maharaja vs. McIntyre

    So one of the big rumours heading into Wrestlemania Backlash is that of Drew McIntyre's next feud being with Jinder Mahal. With the history the two men have with One Man Band and getting released at the same time - this could be an extremely interesting rivalry if done right. You just have to know WWE want to push Jinder with their eyes firmly on India.

    What do we think? Are you excited by this potential story?

    Eh, I'm not overly excited if that's the next feud. But I think it has to do with the middle road character that Drew feels like to me. It's like he is trying to be a face character, but the demeanor and delivery of his promos and such just feel really heelish. I personally enjoy Drew more as a heel than anything. As for the backstory, sure it's there, one can blame the other for all the bad history of them getting released and such. Most likely Jinder blaming Drew as it's been already said by Drew in interviews that they used to set up his face character that if he wasn't released he probably wouldn't be on the level he is now. So I don't know, I'm torn if I would like the feud or not.

    Says everything about the current state of the WWE that this is what passes for a big feud now. Neither guy should have ever made it past the midcard.

    I like the idea of the story. Two dudes released, and made their way back to the fold on top of the world. From a jobber tag team to world titles, both had the same path but one is more welcomed than the other.

    The massive drawback is that half of the story features Jinder Mahal, who is still dull as dirt in every aspect.

    If we're doing a 3MB success story, then I know Heath Slater's tied up with Impact and possibly injured too right now, but I think there's a more appealing story in Heath coming back and trying to climb the same mountain his old bandmates did, with Drew & Jinder giving him different kinds of support.

    I think they wanted to run this angle last year before Jinder got injured, so wouldn't be surprised. Plus, it may get Drew away from the title for a bit.

    I've got a bad feeling we're going to see McIntyre win the title tonight and defend it against Jinder Mahal.

    Re: Maharaja vs. McIntyre

    I'm interested in seeing this feud for sure. McIntyre needs a bit of a break away from the title scene (not that there's many options on Raw for credible babyfaces to fight Lashley). I think their original plan may have been to have this feud be for the title, but it seems natural for them to do this feud now going into the next ppv I think, maybe even do a HIAC match between them.
    I'm not sure if this is a patch back to the true main event scene for Jinder, or if he'll ever win a world title again, but this feud should be interesting enough if done right.

    I don't mind Mahal myself, I think he's a decent enough heel and I'm of the opinion that he's underrated in the ring. Aside from him facing Orton what seemed like a million times for the title, I enjoyed his world title reign for what it was. He also now has a new dimension to him with the two big dudes they've paired him with (though Shanky seriously eneds to stop smiling, I get that he's probably ecstatic to be on Raw and he does just have a naturally kind looking face, but he's supposed to be a heel lol).
