Even though many are questioning WWE’s decision to put their main championship on Jinder Mahal, Steve Austin — who is arguably the biggest star in WWE history — was a big fan of the idea, and he explained why during a recent edition of his podcast.
“He’s got a great look, a great body,” said Austin during this week’s Steve Austin Show. “Dude, the ‘Maharaja’ nickname has the cool factor written all over it. Plus, if you play that with arrogance, it works for you. But, dude, down the road, I think that it spells money. I think the kid [has] got a great look. He’s got the great facials. And, dude, you’ve got to bring a few things to the table, whether it’s appearance or size, looks, handsome, ugly, are you a flat-out bad ass worker, just unbelievable talker? This kid has bits and pieces of the things one needs to be successful. And all of these things can be graded on a scale of one to 10 on what you’re bringing to the table. But, at first, one of the big things you’ve got to bring, dude, for Vince to get in that big spot, size helps and it just does.”
