Jinder Mahal Recently spoke about WWE Creating New Stars. Jinder spoke about it with Inside The Ropes. He isn’t as famous as he used to be, but he is still an active WWE Superstar. There are many people that still believe that WWE cannot create new stars.
In fact, many people believe that John Cena was the last true superstar that the WWE created. According to Jinder, Big E, Randy Orton, Batista, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Kofi Kingston, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Batista are all examples of superstars that the WWE created entirely on their own.
Jinder Mahal Speaks About WWE Creating New Stars After John Cena
“Yeah, they absolutely do,” Mahal said. “That’s what we’re in the business of, right? Just being a fan myself. So I grew up first in the Hulk Hogan era.
Then the new stars came Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, Mankind, right? And the new stars came the next generation – Rock, Stone Cold, and then the next generation after that, Randy Orton and John Cena, Batista, right? And then the next generation after that, I guess, is possibly my generation, right? Me, Drew McIntyre, Big E, Bobby Lashley, Kofi Kingston, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins”.
Jinder started his WWE career in 2010. He stated that he came across many first-time WWE Champions during his career. According to him, that is proof of WWE making new stars. “So actually, I started with WWE in 2010 and all those champions that I’ve listed are first-time champions and there’s more that I’ve missed,” Jinder Mahal said.
“So in the last ten years, we have had several champions. And if you look back in the 70-year history, I believe we’re at number 53. Ten have happened in the ten years. I think that speaks for itself, that we are creating new stars.
If you look at the stats and you see who’s champion and what year, who’s the first time champion? There’s lots of them. So I think I think people just need to just sit back and enjoy the product, let the storylines unfold”.
WWE has been criticized in the past for failing to produce real household names after John Cena. It is true that WWE has given a number of different wrestlers the opportunity to hold the most valuable titles in WWE which helped them rise to the top.
