After Jinder Mahal challenged him to a match at Survivor Series, Brock Lesnar will respond to Mahal on next Monday’s episode of Raw.
Mahal appeared on SmackDown tonight as WWE started the build to their Survivor Series match. The storyline was that Mahal said he was greeted as a hero while doing media in India, but one boy asked him what’s next and why he doesn’t get the same treatment in America despite defeating all of his challengers. Mahal said he must beat the most dominant force in WWE, then issued the challenge to Lesnar.
AJ Styles interrupted Mahal from there, noting that Mahal hasn’t beaten him. Styles attacked Mahal and stood tall to end the segment. After the break, Mahal asked Daniel Bryan what he was going to do about Styles and volunteered Sunil Singh for a match against Styles next Tuesday.
The announcement was later made that Lesnar would be appearing on Raw in Green Bay, Wisconsin next week to respond to Mahal’s challenge.
Dave Meltzer reported last week that Mahal vs. Lesnar was planned for the main event of next month’s dual-branded Survivor Series PPV. Neither Mahal’s WWE Championship nor Lesnar’s Universal title will be on the line in the match.
