It was a classic portrayal of good versus evil this past Sunday at Backlash inside of the Allstate Arena when perhaps the most unlikely of adversaries stepped into the ring with the defending champion, Randy Orton. Heading into Sunday, many fans were very quick to dismiss any chances of Jinder Mahal – a competitor we’ve seen job to other talent endlessly since his return to the company – dethroning The Viper. But to the dismay of all those naysayers, evil prevailed Sunday night when the most illustrious prize in the business, the WWE Championship, was raised high in the air by The Maharaja himself. And this time, it wasn’t because Jinder managed to steal the belt from Orton, it was because Jinder won the belt by pinning Orton.
