Born in Calgary, Canada, as Yuvraj Singh Dhesi, Mahal has been fond of speaking Punjabi as he did while he was growing up. His interest in wrestling developed when he saw his uncle Gama Singh (not to be confused with Gama Pehalwan) wrestling professionally.
“He was my role model while growing up. He had many great bouts in South Africa, and was a big star among the Indians living there. Even today, I sit and watch my bouts with him to pick up a useful tip or two,” says Jinder Mahal as per a report.
He further mentioned, “This was the 1990s when guys like Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart ruled the ring. Then, there were guys like The Rock and Stone Cold who captured my imagination. Just seeing these larger-than-life-characters had me hooked. I wanted to be like them—a champion.”
Jinder got his breakthrough in WWE in the year 2011. Since then, there has been no looking back for him and now he is one of the stars who bags a handsome amount of money each year. You will be surprised to know about his salary.
