WWE Signs Former Indian TV Star



WWE announced the following on their website:

Saurav Gurjar has already achieved great success, both as an athlete and as a television and movie star in Bollywood. Now, the Gwalior, India native is ready to fulfill his dream of becoming a WWE Superstar. This Tuesday, he takes the first step, reporting to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., for training.

The 6-foot-8, 298-pound Gurjar joins several other recruits who are arriving at the Performance Center this week, including Shadia Bseiso of Dubai, Nasser Alruwayeh of Kuwait and fellow Indian Rinku Singh. A former national champion in kickboxing with a diverse background playing sports throughout college, including wrestling, basketball and boxing, Gurjar is a well-known fixture on Indian television, having starred in popular mythological dramas such as “Mahabharat” and “Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman.”

The possibility of landing his greatest role, however – that of becoming a WWE Superstar – arose last April, when Gurjar joined 40 male and female athletes at an invitation-only tryout in Dubai. It was an opportunity he made the most of, and he signed a developmental contract with WWE later that year.

“I don’t want money. I don’t want fame,” Gurjar told last April. “I want my dream.”

Author’s Note: Once again, WWE continues to try to expand their market. Wish this man nothing, but the best.
