During the recently concluded Wrestlemania Week in Florida, WWE announced that 32 of the top female competitors from around the world will participate in a tournament this summer which will be exclusively aired on the WWE Network. The top female competitors are reportedly from 17 different countries and are expected to showcase the international diversity of women’s wrestling.
According to local news sources in India, Kavita Dalal will be representing their country in the said competition.
Kavita Dalal is a multi awarded weightlifter from Haryana. She won a gold medal when she competed in South Asian Games last year and she’s currently training under Great Khali’s promotion, Continental Wrestling Entertainment.
Kavita Dalal, who used to be part of the police force as a Sub Inspector, became popular when she defeated a national level professional wrestler, Bull Bull while wearing a Salwar Kameez. The event started when Bull Bull issued an open challenge to anyone in the audience. According to Kavita’ husband, Gaurav Tomar, a volleyball player in India, Kavita has just started her training during the event but she was greatly confident and she surprised everyone when she was the first one to accept the challenge.
Kavita who is now known as Hard Kady in the wrestling scene is reportedly training for at least 8 hours a day in preparation for the WWE Women’s tournament. Her goal is to become the first Indian female athlete to get signed with the WWE.
