A former WWE champion is ready to make his return to in ring performing after being out of action since June 2019. The superstar is “cleared and waiting” after suffering a ruptured patella tendon.

Jinder Mahal was contacted by wrestlingrumours.net for an update on his status. They reported that he is now ready to return to action.

At first, it was expected Mahal would be back by November last year, then when that didn’t come to fruition it was assumed he would make a comeback at Royal Rumble.

Neither of those happened, and the Modern Day Maharaja who shocked the world by winning the WWE Title from Randy Orton at Backlash 2017 has still not appeared since he got injured in June of last year.

The last time we seen Mahal in the ring was the 51 man match battle royal in the Super Showdown 2019 which was won by Mansoor.

Jinder was then injures in a house show against Mustangs Ali eight days later in which he suffered the serious knee injury.

Before his absence, he was mostly used in the 24/7 Championship picture, having held that belt twice. As mentioned he’s a former WWE Champion and also a former United States Champion.

It will be interesting to see if he will be included on RAW or Smackdown, and who his first feud will be against.
