Here's how The Great Khali's wrestling academy is changing lives of girls

Youngsters from across India are taking admission in the academy set up to produce Indian wrestling-entertainment stars

Dalip Singh Rana, popularly known by his ring name ‘The Great Khali’, after having ended his WWE career in 2014, started his own wrestling training academy by the name of ‘Continental Wrestling Entertainment’ (CWE) in Punjab’s Jalandhar in 2015.

The 7ft 1in tall Khali became popular here in India when he smashed the WWE champion The Undertaker during his first fight in WWE.

Despite winning various titles in WWE, including World Heavyweight Champion title in 2007, Khali refused to renew his contract with WWE in 2014 and decided to return to India to open his own wrestling training academy for youngsters.

Upon his arrival, many of his fans, mostly youngsters, enrolled themselves in Khali’s academy situated on Jalandhar-Hoshiarpur highway. Youngsters not only from Jalandhar but from across India are taking admission in the academy set-up to produce Indian wrestling-entertainment stars.

Interestingly, besides boys, girls as well are showing interest in entering India’s only wrestling training academy.

In an exclusive interview with InUth, The Great Khali spoke on a range of issues, including participation of girls in the academy.
