News on Plans for WWE Title in December; Jinder Mahal Refutes Rumors

-- There are no plans to change the WWE Title back to Jinder Mahal before Survivor Series, though it is possible that he could win it back before WWE's tour of India next month. Another alternative is to have AJ Styles added to the tour, change the title there and then set up a rematch between the two at the December Clash of Champions PPV in Boston - which is where they were originally supposed to wrestle first.

-- Where Jinder Mahal fits into current storylines is unclear, though he has publicly denied any injury and has also refuted rumors that he failed a drug test. His shoulder has been slightly banged up but he's been working through it and he obviously hasn't failed any tests as he remains active in the ring.
