Khali to present pro-wrestling fight spectacle in Uttarakhand this February

NEW DELHI: The Great Khali will be presenting a two-day pro-wrestling fight spectacle, CWE ? The GreatKhali Returns, in Uttarakhand promoted by his Continental Wrestling Academy and coordinated by Chief Minister Harsh Rawat?s  #CM4Youth outreach programme, along with sports & brand management specialist firm Integrated Brand Solutions (IBS).

Rawat today gave details of the two-day pro-wrestling fight spectacle on 24 and 28 February, at the new stadiums in Haldwani and Dehradun before a live audience of at least 15,000 fans in each stadium. Additionally, the event will be telecast and beamed to people across the state through large LED screens being set up in every district of the state.

Commenting on the initiative, Rawat said, ?Pro-wrestling is very popular with the Uttarakhandi youth andKhali?s own story of his rise from being a very ordinary worker from the hills to rising to being amongst the world?s greatest pro-wrestlers ever through single minded focus, hard work and absolute dedication is nothing short of inspirational. I am very confident that this initiative of Khali will not just go a long way in creating additional excitement and awareness about the sport amongst our youth but also offers them a brilliant platform to get recognized and chart their own success story in the world of pro-wrestling.?

Ranjit Rawat and Haripal Rawat, both conveners of #CM4Youth, were present along with IBS CEO Amardeep Singh and leading sporting luminary Padamsree Jaspal Rana, apart from Khali at the press meet in Dehrudun.

At the announcement event, Khali said, ?My journey has not at all been a simple one to say the least. There were many ups and downs, trials and tribulations and more importantly practically no one to guide me. I was pretty sure right from the beginning that I would return to my country and help create the right platform and facilities for my fellow Indians to also make it big in this sport. I am very grateful that Harish Rawat has accorded me this brilliant platform to help take my dream and mission forward.?

?There is just one more thing, I would like to take this opportunity to invite all my detractors, that The GreatKhali is back and if anybody has even the slightest doubt about this, they can come and meet me in the ring, this February in Uttarakhand. It is an open challenge,? he added.

In addition to the marketing campaign that has been planned for the promotion of these fights, the organisers have also launched a logo designing contest through social media, details of which are on
