Jinder Mahal has opened up on the injury setback he suffered after returning to WWE in-ring action in 2020.

In July 2019, Mahal underwent surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon. Upon his return to the ring in April 2020, it looked like he was going to challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. However, another knee injury ruled the former WWE Champion out until January 2021.

Mahal recently appeared in a YouTube video with chiropractor Dr. Beau Hightower. He said a WWE doctor discovered the second injury after his knee swelled.

“So I showed the WWE doctor that it was swollen,” Mahal said. “He says, ‘Oh, we’re going to drain it.’ I’ve drained my knees before so he sucks them off. He says, ‘Okay, get up, should be good.’ I wanted to get up and blocked my knee. I thought, ‘Oh no.’ When all the swelling was there I didn’t notice, but I had torn articular cartilage so I had to have surgery again. In this operation a microfracture of the thigh bone, that was a really long recovery. And here we are. So that was another nine, ten months. “

Jinder Mahal made his long-awaited return in a six-man tag team match at WWE Superstar Spectacle in January 2021. He teamed up with the Singh Brothers to lose to Drew McIntyre, Rinku and Saurav.
