You must have heard of Punjabi women being fierce fighters. Now, you can see it in action.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, a woman clad in a yellow salwar-kameez accepts an open challenge thrown by a professional wrestler during an event held by Continental Wrestling Entertainment, a promotion and training school launched by the Indian WWE champion The Great Khali in 2015.
Watch the video here.
The woman, who’s a former Haryana police officer and power-lifting and mixed martial arts champion Kavita, is seen knocking down the woman wrestler, BB Bull Bull, within minutes as the crowd cheers on.
The video was originally posted on CWE’s Facebook page. “She challenged other women in the crowd which got me really excited. I am a huge fan of wrestling,” she later said in another video posted by CWE.
