Jinder Mahal On The Rock Confronting Him, Luca Crusifino ‘Legally Contesting’ His NXT Loss



Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a surprise return to WWE on last Monday’s ‘Day 1’ themed episode of RAW, confronting Jinder Mahal and teasing a potential match with his cousin, Roman Reigns.

On a recent edition of WWE’s “The Bump,” Mahal explained why The Rock confronted him.

He said, “He wanted to take away my spotlight. That’s the only thing that I can think of. He wanted to take away the spotlight. He saw that I was getting the spotlight. I was speaking the truth, I was speaking facts. I believe I didn’t say anything wrong.

But there he is, The Great One. But I have a feeling this is not the last time me and The Rock will be in the ring together.”

Mahal will challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship next week on Monday Night RAW.

Luca Crusifino has announced that he is filing a legal appeal for his loss to Tavion Heights in the NXT Men’s Breakout Tournament.

Crusifino lost to Heights in the first round of the tournament last month, and he announced on Twitter that he is “legally contesting” the result.

Crusifino’s appeal notes that his foot was under the ropes when the pinfall happened and cited WWE precedent, noting that in 2007, The Great Khali earned a rematch against John Cena when his foot was under the ropes during the pinfall.

WWE NXT has yet to comment on Crusifino’s appeal.

Oba Femi won the NXT Men’s Breakout Tournament and cashed in his contract this week to win the NXT North American Championship.
