In a recent interview with USA Today, WWE Superstar and Executive Triple H commented on a number of interesting topics, one of note was why Jinder Mahal is suddenly in the WWE Championship picture.
Triple H explains why Mahal is getting the push from the WWE.
“I don’t know (Jinder) was as fully ready for the experience (on the main roster) as I would have liked him to be. Drew and Jinder are in some ways similar — two guys who were very young and very green, but I liked them a lot when they were here. Jinder is a guy who has always worked extremely hard. He trains hard; he’s very intense about what he wants with his career; he’s very thoughtful.”
"From the second he’s been back it’s been, ‘What else can I do to make this work? What else can I do to improve? What else can I do to get to the next level?’ It takes time. You bring people back, you let them get their feet wet a bit, you make sure they’ve matured in the way you want them to and move from there. I think fans or people who watch we do, they think it’s a matter of, ‘This guy is there so why don’t they do something with him?’ It’s a more complex process than that and a lot goes into it.”
Triple H spoke on Drew McIntyre's new start in the WWE.
“That’s the same with Drew. That opportunity came for them when you’re too young and not ready for it and a little immature to it. (When they left), I had a conversation where I told them, ‘We’re not going to be able to do more with you here. Go other places, learn more in your career, mature and think about the business in a different way.’ Sometimes you get reliant on other people telling you what to do instead of going out there and figuring it for yourself, which is what you have to do.”
