We are back and the music is playing in the darkened arena for the Punjabi Championship Celebration.  

The music plays and the dancers dance while the Singhs make their way to the ring.

Jinder Mahal makes his way to the ring.

Jinder and the Singhs enter the ring while the dancing continues around the ring.

Jinder says you can shower him with your hatred but that does not change the fact that 1.3 Billion people in India are celebrating that he is WWE Champion.  He says you booed him because he looks different and talks different.  Now you boo him because he exposed you.  He exposed you for the fools that you are.  You didn't believe in the Maharaja and did not think that he could beat Randy Orton.  At Backlash, he enlightened the fools and became WWE Champion.

Randy Orton is just like America, he is on the decline.  Jinder says he is already the greatest WWE Champion of all time.  You think you can ruin his celebration?  You think you can hijack the Maharaja's crowning?  It is about him as he celebrates his accomplishments.  He celebrates for Punjab and India.

Jinder addresses the people of India in Punjabi.  

Pyro goes off over the ring and on the stage.
