Remember the woman clad in a salwar-kameez wrestling and beating the sh*t out of her competitor?

Kavita Devi, a former Haryana Police cop, has signed a contract with the women’s division of WWE which makes her the first Indian woman to be a part of the private professional wrestling platform.

Kavita Devi was recently in the news for showcasing her wrestling talent at an event held by Continental Wrestling Entertainment – a promotion and training school launched by The Great Khali.

Kavita is a powerhouse of martial arts and has battled it out at the WWE ring earlier too. Kavita Devi says she is a Great Khali fan and followed him ever since he won a title on WWE. She also claims to have dreamt of being the first Indian woman to win the title.
