John Cena’s Dad Rips Jinder Mahal, Says He’s Only Champion Because WWE Wants Indian Market

In an interview with Boston Wrestling Sports, John Cena Sr. spoke pretty bluntly about his dislike of Jinder Mahal, saying he didn’t find Mahal to be a “worthy champion.”

“I don’t think he’s a good champion, I don’t think he’s a worthy champion,” Cena Sr. said. “I think they need to get somebody in there that can get people involved in the championship matches… I don’t think he’s the man for the job.”

“I’m not impressed,” Cena Sr. continued. “There are other people I can see holding that belt.”

“The fans are gonna get pretty tired, pretty fast,” he said. “They don’t like Mahal to start with, and not because he’s a good heel, it’s because he can’t wrestle.”

Mahal’s reign as champion has sometimes been compared to JBL’s run as champ in 2004, another time when WWE took someone not in the title picture and thrust him into a WWE Title reign. JBL ended up holding the belt for 281 days. Cena Sr. does not think Mahal is comparable to JBL though.

“He’s not even close to being a JBL. Mahal is in there for one reason: they want the Indian market,” Cena Sr. said. “What better way to get it than to have the champion into the country you’re going? And he’s gonna hold that when he comes out of India, he’s gonna hold that for a while for whatever reason. To upset the fans, maybe? Perhaps. But he certainly is not the same caliber of JBL. He doesn’t have the arrogance, the ability, nor the characterization, nor the wrestling ability!”
