It was reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE Champion Jinder Mahal has a shoulder injury, but during an interview published this morning on ESPN.com, he denied the rumors.
“I don’t have an injury. Those are just rumors,” Mahal said. “I have large traps and that causes my shoulders to roll forward so when I tape them up, it just pulls my shoulders back and I start to develop my rear shoulders more. My traps are a bit too strong so it puts me out of balance. So it is just to prevent future injuries.”
Lately, Mahal has been wearing Kinesio Tape at WWE live events, though he does not wear it at televised events.
