Jinder Mahal is the current WWE Champion, and on Sunday he’s set to defend his title against Randy Orton in a Punjabi Prison match at the Battleground pay-per-view. Jinder’s rise to the top of the card has been one of the biggest stories of the year, and it’s clear that Vince McMahon has faith in The Maharaja.

Mahal recently spoke to India Times about his relationship with Vince McMahon, and he says that he has creative control, and he’s earned Vince’s trust.

“I do have creative control but also Vince (McMahon) gives advice and ideas and I take them. Vince has experience and he has made the biggest sports entertainment in the history. He has made WWE into a global phenomenon. I have a good relationship with Vince, he trusts me on the microphone, with my matches, which will only increase with time. I personally want to seek Vince’s advice.”

Just a few months ago there were many wrestling fans out there who thought they would never see Jinder Mahal hold the WWE Title. Now that he’s the WWE Champion, Jinder has his eyes set on some even bigger goals.

“The change in attitude means a total change in my way of thinking, the way that I train, the way that I look. And thinking positively, what I do is I write down my goals. Every day I write down that I want to be 10-time World Champion, I write down that I want to have the best body in WWE, so that motivates me every day to train hard and constantly reevaluate myself. You associate yourself with positive people and try to have positive energy. I think that I can be the best WWE superstar then only can be the best WWE superstar.”
