Have a Look: Kavita Devi’s Awesome WWE Fight in a Kurti!

Remember Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, Tatanka, and the other WWF wrestlers who had become household names? Meet India’s first woman WWE wrestler now.

I was introduced to the World Wrestling Federation, which has now been renamed World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), sometime in the mid-90s. Playing with WWF trump cards was a favourite pastime. Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, Tatanka, and many other WWF wrestlers had become a household name back then.

To see Indians making a foray into this sport is great. The Great Khali, Jinder Mahal, and now Kavita Devi, a woman from Haryana, who becomes India’s first woman contender, competed in the 32-women’s single elimination tournament.

While her skill set is being discussed, what has caught the attention of millions of spectators of this sport is her unusual attire. Clad in salwar-kameez, Kavita packs a powerful punch.

Hailing from Haryana, Kavita underwent training to be a professional wrestler under the guidance of The Great Khali (Dalip Singh Rana) at his Punjab based wrestling promotion and training academy, the Hindustan Times reports.

She shot to fame after her video, in which she wrestled against a woman wrestler named BB Bull Bull, went viral on social media.

In an interview to Sportskeeda, Kavita speaks about her initiation into the sport. “I loved watching WWE matches, but I never even dreamed about stepping into the ring. One day I was at a local show, and the performer in the ring laid out an open challenge. I raised my hand without thinking, entered the ring and realised I can do this. I used to only watch from afar, until then. After that, the Great Khali took me under his wing, made me work very hard and prepared me for the future.”

Wearing a simple salwar-kameez with a dupatta tied around her waist, this girl is creating quite the buzz.

We, at the Better India, wish her all the best for her future matches.
