Having begun his career on the independent circuit, he joined WWE in 2010, making his debut on the company’s main roster the following year. After a short-lived alliance with his storyline brother-in-law The Great Khali, Mahal formed the group 3MB with fellow wrestlers Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre before both Mahal and McIntyre were released from the company in June 2014.

Mahal returned to WWE two years later with a dramatically improved physique and received a push following WrestleMania 33, culminating in a win over Randy Orton at Backlash in May 2017 for the WWE Championship. Mahal thus became the 50th WWE Champion and the first wrestler of Indian descent to win the WWE Championship. After losing the title in November 2017, he later won the WWE United States Championship at the 34th edition of WWE’s flagship pay-per-view event WrestleMania in April 2018.
