There was a lot of buzz floating around the two upcoming events WWE would be hosting in India. After a recent European tour, the company was scheduled to head back to India on December 8th and 9th and some of WWE’s biggest names were going to be there.
In fact, there was buzz that A.J. Styles’ surprising win and defeat of Jinder Mahal to capture the WWE Championship might be short-term with the title going back to Mahal just before or at one of these events in India. Mahal was originally crowned WWE Champion as a way to help WWE’s promotion in the India market. It only made sense to give that audience another “wow” moment by having recaptured the title in front of “his people.”

The Times of India reports that there will now be just one WWE live event in India next month. The December 8th show has been canceled and a “Supershow” on December 9th will be the main attraction all fans can attend.
To make that show special, Jinder Mahal vs. Triple H has been confirmed as the main event. Originally, Kevin Owens was scheduled as Mahal’s opponent on December 9th but it appears he’s been removed from the tour. Also, to give the show a bit more India flare, WWE NXT talents Jeet Rama and Kishan Rafter will face Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas that night.
It isn’t 100 percent known why one of the events was canceled but WWE did issue a press release stating: “To meet the requests of WWE fans in India, and deliver the biggest main event in the country’s history, WWE is combining two nights of family-friendly action into a one-night only, exclusive Supershow.”
Those fans will get to see Triple H face Jinder Mahal, The Shield versus Samoa Joe and The Bar, Kane versus Braun Strowman, Finn Balor versus Bray Wyatt, Sasha Banks versus Alexa Bliss and more.
