Jinder Mahal On Losing The WWE Championship To AJ Styles, Wellness Policy and Injury Rumors

After losing the WWE Championship to AJ Styles last night on SmackDown LIVE, Jinder Mahal addressed the defeat in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

As seen in the following post, Mahal denied several theories surrounding why he dropped the title, including the thought that he failed WWE’s Wellness Policy.

He wrote, “To @ajstylesp1, you were the better man for one night. Six months I held the #WWEChamoionship, defended it countless times, all over the world. I will one day raise the title again. To my haters and wrestling “insiders”, this was NOT an experiment, I am NOT injured, I have NOT violated the wellness policy. So keep throwing shade my way, it only motivates me.”

With the win, Styles will replace Mahal as Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s opponent at Survivor Series on Nov. 19
