Jinder Mahal On Rumors Of Failing Wellness Policy Test, Losing WWE Championship

Jinder Mahal On Rumors Of Failing Wellness Policy Test, Losing WWE Championship

According to ShowBuzz Daily, this week's episode of WWE Smackdown Live brought in 2.603 million viewers, which is a big jump from 2.119 million viewers last week.

Jinder Mahal's maiden title reign as the WWE Champion came to an abrupt end at the hands of AJ Styles during SmackDown Live's European Tour UK leg in Manchester.

In regards to the sudden title change, Meltzer stated that the internal feeling was the fact that people were "crapping all over" the Lesnar v. Jinder match, but the sharp drop in last week's SmackDown rating was also a likely factor.

The Survivor Series pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, November 19, 2017 in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Jinder never quite got over as the WWE Champion after winning the belt from Randy Orton in May.

The Shield vs. The New Day hasn't been made official, but it seems clear that's where WWE is headed. The title change comes one day after Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins on Raw to become WWE Raw Tag Team Champions.

One superstar is not happy to hear John Cena's role at Survivor Series.

A few more Survivor Series matches might be altered within the next week.

The same goes for the Survivor Series match between Intercontinental Champion The Miz and United States Champion Baron Corbin.

The victory for Styles sets up a dream Survivor Series match with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in a non-title champion vs champion bout.
