Sometimes when watching WWE programming, whether it be Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live, the commentators describing the matches taking place in the ring can say the weirdest things.

Another such incident took place during this week's Raw when Jinder Mahal had a match against Elias with Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves on commentary.

The mistake on the commentary was made by the very experienced Cole, but it was so surprising that even Graves questioned what his fellow commentator had just said.

Near the end of the match, as Elias hit his Drift Away finisher on Mahal and prepared for a pin, Cole referred to The Modern Day Maharaja as 'Dinner Mahal' instead of Jinder.

Graves picked up on this immediately and said to Cole: "Did you just call him Dinner?" before going on to say that his commentary standards were 'slipping'.

Graves wasn't the only person that picked up on Cole's mispronunciation of Jinder's name, as WWE fans on Twitter couldn't contain themselves over the mishap by the experienced announcer.

Very rarely does Cole make a mispronunciation like this, but you can't help but laugh when he does.

Back to the match in question, Mahal's loss to Elias has helped establish The Drifter as a face during his current big push, and it will be interesting to see how WWE uses him moving forward.

It seems as though WWE is building up towards an Elias vs Baron Corbin match further down the line.

Elias looks set to have a match against Baron Corbin very soon

The Drifter was playing his guitar and singing outside of the acting Raw general manager's locker room door to make him feel better following his injury from Braun Strowman at the start of the show.

He did this until he was attacked by Mahal, to which then Corbin emerged from his locker room and booked Elias in a match against the man that had attacked him just moments ago. 

As for The Modern Day Maharaja, his time as one of the company's top heels is clearly over now, as he is being used as a heel enhancement star for any faces being pushed on Raw.
