Picking up where we left off Jinder & The Singh's would begin their feud with The New Day following the Royal Rumble event. This would be a short feud heading to Fast Lane 2018 which was the last Smackdown exclusive event. Now even though some might think it's backward to have Jinder lose it's all a part of the plan and the bigger picture to let New Day partially because Jinder will not take the fall during the match. Heading into Wrestlemania 34 we will have Jinder enter the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and we will let him get the win and get some momentum going in his favor.
Jinder will brag for the next few weeks about winning the battle royal heading into "The Greatest Royal Rumble." At this event he will have an even better performance then he did at the Royal Rumble by actually winning the match, because letting Jinder get the win would give the match a lot more of a purpose. Following the event once again Jinder will brag about winning his second battle royal in about a month building more and more momentum. Fast forward to the build-up to Money in the Bank we will see Jinder compete in a six-pack challenge to fight AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
Jinder will get the win in the six-pack challenge that also included Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, and Samoa Joe. The reason for his win would be based on not only the mounting momentum that has been building but also the fact that it would give AJ Styles a new challenger which was something he desperately needed at this point after his lackluster feud with Nakamura. In the build to Money in the Bank, this is when the "Modern Day Maharaja" moniker will be added to his entrance video really pushing the nickname in promos while he wouldn't appear until the Singh Brothers would introduce him as the "Modern Day Maharaja."
At Money in the Bank, we will see Jinder get the fluke victory over AJ Styles ending his long reign as champion in my opinion. This would get a lot of heat on Jinder for defeating Styles with the help of the Singh's. The following Smackdown we will see a coronation for Jinder becoming champion and it is interrupted by AJ Styles who wants his rematch at Extreme Rules. Now the original main event from the show will stick that being Dolph against Seth in an Iron-man match due to the finish that will come for the WWE Title match. In the build, to the event the Good Brothers will get involved on AJ's side to even the odds, but AJ begs them to only show up if they are needed at the PPV. The match at Extreme Rules will end in a draw when both the Singh's & Good Brothers get involved setting up a six-man tag for Summerslam.
Overall Jinder's reign with the title will come to a close at Hell in a Cell when AJ regains the gold in a Hell in a Cell match. Even though the two-month reign may seem like Jinder would come out of it weak in my opinion the length isn't what matters rather the story that went with the reign is what counts. Not moving Jinder to Raw during the shake-up like they did would also help keep the pressure off him and make it more likely he could break through. The most important thing in my opinion though his win seemed believable because of how he did it and the Singh's become more needed as they were the reason Jinder gained the title. This does allow us to keep the same timeline with Daniel Bryan winning the title from AJ in the build-up to Survivor Series in November.
