“The Maharaja” Jinder Mahal is certainly making waves across the world after his WWE Championship win … even in his home country of Canada.
In a Canadian Provincial Parliament session in Alberta on Tuesday, MPP Graham Sucha tabled to have Mahal officially congratulated for his win — citing three articles and getting a “Don’t Hinder Jinder” mention into the official session.
Sucha’s motion was recognized.
While much of the press around Mahal has made note of his Punjabi heritage, Sucha also reminded the Parliament that Mahal is the first Calgary native to win a WWE Championship in 20 years. The last Calgary native to do so was Bret Hart in 1997.
