Kavita Devi, who was a part of WWE’s Mae Young Classic tournament earlier this year, has become the first ever Indian woman wrestler to sign with the WWE.
Jinder Mahal, the current WWE champion, confirmed the news in a special visit to New Delhi recently.
“It was a privilege to be the first Indian woman to compete in WWE,” said Devi. “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.”
“I’m extremely proud to welcome Kavita to WWE where she now has a great opportunity to become India’s first female WWE Superstar. She is an inspiration to the youth of India and I wish nothing but success for her” said Jinder Mahal.
