Brace yourself for the return of the daunting Punjabi Prison Match when Randy Orton looks for retribution and his 14th World Title against WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at WWE Battleground.
At WWE Money in the Bank, Mahal’s faithful cohorts, The Singh Brothers, not only cost Orton his chance to regain the WWE Title, but also attacked his father, WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton. In response, one week after attacking Mahal, a still seething Orton opted to hold up the June 27 edition of SmackDown LIVE. Orton threatened the titleholder’s family and everybody else who would dare to get in his way until he received another WWE Championship Match against The Modern-Day Maharaja.
Though SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon agreed that The Viper deserved another title opportunity, he decided that the personal nature of the rivalry between the two Superstars demanded a special match stipulation. Because Orton already lost his mandatory rematch, Shane-O-Mac indicated that he would allow Mahal to choose the stipulation.
In a stunning announcement, The Modern-Day-Maharaja declared that he would give WWE’s Apex Predator a taste of his homeland by resurrecting the infamous Punjabi Prison! But what exactly will the intimidating Punjabi Prison Match consist of?
With Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal locked inside the dreaded Punjabi Prison, there is no way to predict who will walk out with the WWE Championship.
Prediction…Jinder Mahal to retain
