Kavita Devi will have a date with history later this year after making WWE’s Mae Young Classic women’s wrestling tournament.
The former Indian powerlifter and South Asian Games gold medal winner will become the first Indian woman to appear in the WWE. She was selected after taking part in the WWE Dubai tryout earlier this year in April.
Devi, a native of Haryana, received tutelage from none other than former WWE Champion, The Great Khali, at his Punjab-based wrestling promotion and training academy.
The first-ever Mae Young Classic will see the 32 of the top female competitors from around the world participating in a single-elimination tournament.
