Shining Stars Get a New Name + Bollywood Boyz Debut on SmackDown
The Shining Stars Get a New Name
The Shining Stars were announced as “The Colons” on SmackDown Live tonight, so it looks like their Shining Stars gimmick has been dropped.
WWE is also using the “Colons” name on their website and social media accounts.
The Bollywood Boyz Debut on SmackDown
The Bollywood Boyz, Gurv and Harv Sihra, made their SmackDown Live debut tonight, helping Jinder Mahal win in his match to become #1 contender for the WWE Championship. The Bollywood Boyz grabbed Sami Zayn’s legs as he was going for the Helluva Kick on Jinder, which allowed Jinder to get the win.
It can be assumed that they’ve probably been called up to the main roster and will form some sort of alliance with Jinder Mahal.
They made their WWE debuts in the Cruiserweight Classic, both being eliminated in the first round (to Noam Dar and Drew Gulak). They wrestled on the first episode of 205 Live, and have been in NXT since. They also previously wrestled in Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling, becoming the first ever GFW Tag Team Champions in 2015.
UPDATE: WWE is now referring to them as “The Singh Brothers” on social media.
