Last year, the video of an Indian woman clad in an orange salwar-kameez accepting the open challenge of a professional wrestler and then winning the round went viral. The video showed Kavita Devi, a Punjabi former mixed martial arts (MMA) champion fighting it out at an event held by Continental Wrestling Entertainment, a promotion and training school launched by the Indian WWE champion The Great Khali, in 2015. But if you thought it would be just a blink and miss appearance by Devi, then you are wrong. Now, the former Haryana police officer is back again, making headlines as the first-Indian woman to compete in a WWE ring.

As the first female Indian wrestler to compete in a WWE ring, Kavita Devi is looking to follow in the footsteps of her inspiration and trainer, The Great Khali.

One trait Devi clearly has in common with the former World Heavyweight Champion is power. Devi is an accomplished powerlifter whose strength and size give her a leg up on her competition in the Mae Young Classic. She has represented India in international competition, including the 2016 South Asian Games, where she won gold in the 75 kg category.

Although she is relatively inexperienced compared to some of her counterparts in the Classic, Devi has the physical tools to go a long way. Devi was a part of WWE’s historic Dubai tryout in April and caught the attention of the WWE scouts. Behind her immense physical skills, Devi could one day become a household name in wrestling, perhaps starting with this summer’s Mae Young Classic
