India's WWE wrestler Kavita Devi stuns fans, wrestles wearing salwaar-kameez”

It was a time when to have an Indian in western wrestling tournaments was virtually unheard of and the wrestler from Punjab throttled the entire WWE fraternity with his presence. In the video from August 30 this year, Devi, clad in a saffron salwar-kameez again, is seen battling it with a Kiwi professional wrestler Cheree Crowley and pinning her down.

Kavita Devi - a former competitive powerlifter - has represented India in worldwide competitions, including the 2016 South Asian Games, where she won gold in the 75 kg category.

About her choice of clothing, Devi was quoted by Pinkvilla about how comfortable salwar-kameez is as an outfit.

While Indian superstars such as The Great Khali and Jinder Mahal have made an impression and earned much fame, WWE's woman wrestler Kavita Devi is a new star in the making.

Kavita Devi is a former competitive power lifter and South Asian Games gold medal victor who represented India. Though Kavita looks dominating in the match, the game turned around in the end and Dakota Kai eventually emerged as the victor. She participated in the WWE Dubai Tryout earlier this April where she left each and every spectator awestruck. Rising star Kavita Devi is another one you will have to watch out for, if her stint at Mae Young Classic, a WWE event is any indication.

WWE Talent Development Vice President Canyon Cayman had commended Devi for her performance. "I hope to use this platform to inspire other Indian women with my performance and make India proud".
