The Creed Brothers ambushed from behind.
At NXT New Year’s Evil, The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) were scheduled to take on Indus Sher (Veer & Sanga). Sanga came out to the ring and stated that Veer was not present for their match.
He would add that he’d face The Creeds 2-on-1 but coming from behind to ambush The Creeds was former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. Sanga and Mahal took out both Julius and Brutus.

In 2012, Mahal went one-on-one with Seth Rollins to determine the first-ever NXT Champion.
