This time three years ago, Jinder Mahal was losing essentially every match he took part in. He was a comedy wrestler.
Last night, he became the WWE Champion, knocking off Randy Orton in arguably the biggest upset of the year.
A Canadian born talent with Punjab Jat Sikh origin, Mahal hit the Khallas, his version of the cobra clutch slam, to get the three count on Orton after sixteen minutes, in his first ever main event.
The WWE Hindi commentary was absolutely spectacular.

While The Great Khali did squash the Undertaker to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 2007, there hadn't been an Indian WWE Champion since the belt's beginning in 1963. So you can forgive Obad Kadwani and Shez Sardar for losing their minds.
The organization head to New Dehli in September as part of a major world tour, and last night's results will surely add crowd numbers.
Don't hinder Jinder.
Canada's India's number one.
This rivals the KCLR reaction to Carlow's upset of Wexford.
