As the highly anticipated 2023 WWE Superstar Spectacle event draws nearer, wrestling fans in India are in for a treat with a lineup that promises action, surprises, and a glimpse of their favorite WWE Superstars. Recent updates have shed light on the card, including unexpected twists and appearances by some of the biggest names in the wrestling world.
One of the most intriguing updates involves the tag team clash between Indus Sher, comprised of Veer and Sanga, and the formidable duo of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Originally slated as a battle for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles, the dynamics changed after Owens and Zayn dropped their championship belts to Finn Balor and Damian Priest at WWE Payback. Despite initial speculation that the match might be canceled, WWE India has confirmed that the showdown will indeed occur. However, it’s now been designated as a non-title bout. Adding to the excitement, Jinder Mahal, leader of Indus Sher, is set to accompany his stablemates to the ring, promising an electrifying encounter.
In another intriguing development, WWE has announced a host of Superstars for the event, although their specific matches and segments remain undisclosed. Among the confirmed talents are Bron Breakker, Shanky, Becky Lynch, Drew McIntyre, Matt Riddle, and WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER. GUNTHER is notably listed alongside his Imperium stablemates Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci, raising questions about whether he will compete in singles action or join Kaiser and Vinci for a significant tag team match. Furthermore, there is speculation that Jinder Mahal might partake in a singles match, although his role for the night is currently confirmed as leading Indus Sher to the ring.
Shanky’s presence on the card is also generating buzz, marking his return to in-ring action. His last match dates back to July 2022 when he teamed up with Jinder Mahal in a count-out loss to The Viking Raiders. Shanky’s inclusion in the event follows his participation in the inaugural WWE Superstar Spectacle in January 2021, where he teamed with Giant Zanjeer, Ricochet, and 2023 WWE Hall of Famer and current United States Champion Rey Mysterio for a victorious effort against formidable opponents.
