But if as a babyface you can't get cheered against Jinder, there is a huge problem right there.
 
Quote Kevin Owens & Jinder Mahal vs. Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns: Jinder and Owens start this one off strong and they take turns double teaming The Big Dog. Seth finally gets the hot tag and cleans house. Seth goes for a suicide dive on Jinder, but Owens grabs his feet and blocks it, so Seth drops Owens first. Seth then follows up with a suicide dive on Jinder on the other side of the ring. Seth brings Jinder back in the ring, then goes up top and hits the Blockbuster. Seth looks for the curb stomp now, but Sunil Singh gets on the apron for the distraction. Seth turns around into a shot from Jinder for the two count. Jinder looks for the Khallas, but Seth kicks him down. Owens tags in and blocks a shot from Rollins, then follows up with a gut buster. Owens hits a flying elbow drop, but Reigns breaks it up. Reigns drops Jinder, but then Owens superkicks Reigns down. Owens looks for a Pop Up Powerbomb, but Seth escapes and hits a superkick and then the curb stomp for the win.

Winners: Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns

- After the match, Jinder comes back out of nowhere on the ramp and beats down Seth and Reigns. Jinder beats on them with a steel chair and stands over Reigns' body on the ramp. Jinder leaves and Reigns and Rollins slowly get to their feet, and referees help them to the back.

I would expect Jinder to continue to get the upperhand until they meet on PPV.
 
Then the interest at MITB will be if E decide to give Mahal such a huge win or don't think he's deserving of it.

Either way I am glad that Jinder Mahal is in this feud and that people are even starting to cheer him. 

I want Mahal to be a good guy within the next year.

Watching Raw just now on Hulu and I quickly picked up on the fact that commentary was trying to get over the idea that Jinder was now in Reigns' league unlike when he was in 3MB, so it appears Tom is on the money here. It makes me wonder if Jinder might even get the win over Reigns at MitB.

Whilst i do agree with Tom to an extent, it is absolutely ridiculous to suggest that this is not also to get Roman cheered (not that you insinuated that point but Tom did)

The fact that theyve put Reigns against the biggest heat magnet in WWE up to this point and then went one better on Raw.

They had Stephanie have a go at Kurt Angle about Reigns' preferential treatment to try and get Reigns the sympathy vote which preceded the most robotic exchange between Reigns and Stephanie that ive ever seen in wrestling history

If this was solely about getting Mahal over as that next level guy - there are loads of other superstars they could have matched him up against - especially given that Reigns has been on a losing streak as of late (albeit he won 1 match at Backlash but prior to that he has lost pretty much everything of note)

The textbook answer is "WWE are going to do their best to make everyone a star and get everyone over" but in this case I think it's pretty clear that it was exactly what they were doing. Of course when they both crap the bed in the eyes of the fans, then what? Especially if Jinder wins.
