Jinder Mahal appears on WWE Raw with new group


Jinder Mahal appeared on Raw tonight with a new group that debuted last week on Main Event.

Mahal defeated Jeff Hardy in his first match on Raw in nearly a year, pinning Jeff Hardy clean with the Khallas. Mahal introduced two new associates, Veer (Rinku Singh, formerly one half of Indus Sher) and Shanky (Dilsher Shanky) prior to the match. The group previously made their debut as an act last week on Main Event, where Mahal also defeated Hardy.

Jinder Mahal’s career has been wrought with knee injuries since 2019. After returning from knee surgery in 2020, he underwent a second knee surgery almost immediately after, keeping him out of action for the rest of the year. He made his return at Superstar Spectacle in January, teaming with The Bollywood Boyz in a losing effort against Drew McIntyre and Indus Sher.

Veer has been in the WWE since 2018. He appeared on NXT TV with Saurav Gurjar and together they were known as Indus Sher, with Malcolm Bivens as their manager. Shanky has been with WWE since last year, with his most high-profile match being a eight-man tag match at Superstar Spectacle, where he and his team emerged victorious.
