Kavita Devi Scripts History By Becoming First Indian Woman Wrestler In WWE

Published on 16 October, 2017 at 4:27 pm By

She had already blown away the world of wrestling as well as social media by taking on several wrestlers including B B Bull Bull and Dakota Kai wearing Salwar Kameez. Then she went on to set the internet on fire by becoming the first India woman to be a part of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) at its Mae Young classic tournament.

Now, South Asian Games gold medalist Kavita Devi has added another feather to her cap by becoming the first Indian woman to be awarded a developmental contract by WWE. The first-ever WWE Champion of Indian-origin, Jinder Mahal, was the one to make this announcement during his visit to New Delhi on Sunday.

Kavita is expected to commence her training at the WWE Performance Center at Orlando in January next year. Devi participated in the Mae Young Classic tournament of the WWE but she lost the opening round against Dakota Kai. An accomplished weightlifter and winner of gold medal at the 2016 South Asian Games, Devi has been trained for ring skills by former WWE World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali (Dalip Singh Rana).

The Times of India quotes her saying:

“It was a privilege to be the first Indian woman to compete in WWE. Participating in the Mae Young Classic with some of the best female performers in the world was a great learning experience. Now I am looking forward to pursuing my dream of becoming the first WWE Women’s Champion from India.”

In another recent landmark development by the WWE concerning women, Shadia Bseiso from Jordan, has become the first Arab woman from the Middle East to be awarded a WWE developmental contract.



The organization even took it to Twitter to share the news with social media users in a tweet:

Keeping up with the trend of giving due priority to its women’s division, WWE has recruited the two young female talents. Commenting upon the same, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE executive vice president of talent, live events and creative said:
