5 Superstars On SmackDown That Would Be A Better WWE Champion Than Jinder Mahal

Jinder Mahal’s run as WWE Champion has been a disaster so far. His promos have been for the most part boring, now they have become lazy and controversial. The feud between Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura has simply been Mahal poking fun at Nakamura because he is Japanese. WWE’s Hell in a Cell PPV is less than two weeks away and the WWE Championship match feels like the third most important match on the card. Here are 5 Superstars on SmackDown’s roster that would make a better WWE Champion:


WWE wanted to get the crowd to hate Mahal because he was foreign and scolded the American fans. Rusev already did that when he was United States Champion and did a much better job than Jinder Mahal is doing right now. Rusev is currently feuding with Randy Orton. He lost a match in 15 seconds to Orton at SummerSlam and then won a match against Orton in 15 seconds on SmackDown.

Their feud is going nowhere and will most likely end at Hell in a Cell on October 8th. If Nakamura doesn’t win the WWE Championship at the PPV, why not give Rusev a run with the title? He is better in the ring and on the microphone than Jinder Mahal.
