The Singh Brothers' appearance on SmackDown Live last week wasn't the last time fans will see them in WWE. On this week's episode of SmackDown, Jinder Mahal attacked the Singh Brothers after they failed to defeat AJ Styles in a match. On Wednesday, there was a rumor that Mahal's betrayal of his companions was also a sign that they were exiting the WWE.
But according to PWInsider.com, the Singh Brothers are to appear on this week's episode of SmackDown. Also, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio reported that the brothers are indeed done working with Mahal, but are not going to be released from their contracts.
According to Meltzer, WWE officials were pleased with the Singh Brothers' roles as Mahal's right-hand men and believes they'll go back to NXT until the company decides what's next for them.
Given the long list of superstars recently released—including James Ellsworth, Emma, Summer Rae, Darren Young and others— it was easy to believe that the Singh Brothers would maybe be done with WWE altogether.
Though the Singh brothers showed excellent skills on the microphone, they haven't been taken seriously as legitimate threats. As such, their next roles would probably have them be sidekicks for a different wrestler—unless the return to NXT will help them build credibility.
The Singh Brothers did a marvelous job in promoting and building up Mahal's character during his WWE Championship reign. Given Mahal's somewhat mediocre skills on the mic, the Singh brothers were able to bail him out and make his promos that much better.
The Burnaby, B.C. natives first joined WWE last summer and spent a brief time in NXT before moving up to the main event roster in April. They displayed their allegiance to Mahal after helping him defeat Randy Orton for the WWE title at Backlash and began to interfere in matches on behalf.
With all the hard work they put in, the Singh Brothers absolutely deserve another run with the WWE. It'll be interesting to see what's next in store for the two men after Mahal's backstab.
