Jinder Mahal was last seen in the Super ShowDown event in the 50-man battle royal and had suffered a knee injury, for which he had to undergo a surgery that required a recovery period of 6 to 12 months. In June In 2019, the Maharaja successfully underwent the injury to repair a patellar tendon rupture. Sharing about his surgery back then, Jinder had taken to his Instagram and wrote, “On the mend. Ruptured my Patella Tendon in Denver Colorado June 15 in a match against @aliwwe . Happy to say the surgery went well, and my knee was better than expected. This comeback is going to be legendary.”
