A former WWE Champion has revealed Vince McMahon was a big fan of his theme song.

After being released by WWE in 2014, Jinder Mahal was back with the company two years later and quickly enjoyed the best run of his career. Mahal won the WWE Championship in 2017, and although appearances became harder to come by as the years passed, he challenged Seth Rollins for the World Title and went toe-to-toe with The Rock just four months ago.

However, Mahal was released by WWE for a second time on April 19th, 2024, and can now be found heading out onto the independent scene.

In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Mahal looked back at his time with WWE, including his incredibly popular theme song. The former World Champion said the song was popular with a lot of the boys in the back, as well as Vince McMahon.

“I get that a lot. A lot of people tell me that, like, ‘Your theme’s a banger.’ Even a lot of the boys. Actually, Tamina told me one time my entrance music was playing, and Vince was dancing in Gorilla Position. Yeah [laughs]. I said the same thing. ‘What?’ So yeah, he was dancing in Gorilla, like Indian dancing [laughs],”

Mahal added that he did;t originally like the song, but it grew on him over time.

“Yeah, I didn’t actually like it that much. Because based off of what I had given them as inspiration, it was nothing like that. [I gave them] other Punjabi songs. There’s an artist called Diljit [Dosanjh], I gave them some of his songs as a sample. But I love it. It’s good. I love it now. It grew on me,”

Randy Orton Is Glad Vince McMahon Has Left WWE

Speaking in a new interview, Randy Orton gave his thoughts on Vince McMahon’s WWE exit, and why life is much better with Triple H in control. The Viper said that while he “loves” McMahon for giving his chance in WWE, it’s “nice” he’s gone from WWE.

McMahon was forced to step down from his role on the TKO Group Board of Directors back in January due to allegations of sex trafficking and sexual assault. The former WWE boss continues to deny any wrongdoing.
