A couple of months ago, an interview with Jinder Mahal wouldn't have gotten many people's attention and no one would have cared to even ask him what WWE Legend he would like to face in the ring.
But that all changed when he became the #1 contender for the championship and the went on to actually win the title against Randy Orton at Backlash.
So, in speaking with sportskeeda.com, this is what he said when asked which WWE legend he would want to face:
"I think The Rock would be my perfect pick just because he’s such a huge Superstar and growing up he was one of my favourites, you know he was my idol. Just everything – from the way he spoke to his fashion sense to his style in the ring – you know he was a very fierce competitor.He was very strong and was always in tremendous shape and great on the microphone, very entertaining. So that would be my dream opponent of all time, to work a programme with the Rock. You know I think it’s still possible and can happen one day. He likes to come back to the WWE every once in a while. I think it’s a real chance that the opportunity can come to fruition."
And what about the possibility of The Undertaker making a return? What does Mahal think of that?
"I believe there is another chapter left but that’s the thing about the WWE, that’s the thing with Undertaker, he’s so mysterious, he’s so unpredictable, you don’t know what that chapter’s going to be.You know he can pop up anytime, he can pop on RAW or on SmackDown. He can pop up at WrestleMania, you just never know, but I believe that he still has something left. But that’s just my opinion. Even if he’s done, he’ll go down as one of the greatest of all time."
