New Delhi - Gurgaon based Lex Sportel Vision announced the launch of India’s first Indigenous Pro Wrestling Show titled, ‘WIN (Wrestle India Network) Dangal ke Soorma’. The 12 episode series will feature 21 elite Indian Pro-Wrestlers taking on International Wrestling stars and will be broadcast on DSPORT from August 24, 2019 onwards.

Like many international shows, WIN Dangal ke Soorma aims to enthuse viewers through some edge of the seat wrestling action interspersed with a gripping plotline, which showcases an epic battle between Carl Hella, a Singapore based Pro-Wrestling tournament manager and Balliyan Akki, a young pro wrestler from Muzzafarnagar who in a brief span of 5 years challenged global players in Japan and major tournaments in South East Asia, to put Indian Wrestlers on a global platform.

Both Carl and Balliyan have come together with their team of wrestlers (both Indian and global) to challenge each other in 25 matches and to find out the true champion who will be christened the ‘DangalKaSoorma 2019’. The series is packed with action, twists, excitement and much more as every episode witnesses hardcore punches backed with a spicy backstory full of enthralling moments of backstabbing, bruised egos, surprise entries & all around entertainment, very synonymous with the world of pro-wrestling.

The preparation of the show is as unique as its story, where almost 6 months went in tryouts and trials of about 40+ enthusiasts to finally choose 21 strong hopefuls. They were given identities, which suited their character on the show and their costumes were styled. They were also given specific weight and body sculpting targets. Parallel to this, a script and idea was formulated by the channel, and the principal character of the show Carl Hella was prepared for the series.

The show will also feature Ex-WWE Superstar Chris Adonis, former AWO Heavyweight and COW Interstate Champion to excite and inspire the indian contingent. Chris was ranked Top 100 of the Top 500 wrestlers in the PWI Arizona Heavyweight Championship.

Speaking at the launch occasion of DangalkeSoorma, Mr. R.C. Venkateish, MD& CEO, Lex Sportel, said, “Pro-wrestling is the second most viewed sport of the country after cricket. Despite this fact, this unique form of sportainment has never been promoted in the country and has always been dominated by International Wrestling Shows. We see a huge untapped potential in the Indian Pro-wrestling industry, hence coming up with the concept of creating India’s first indigenous Pro-Wrestling show”.

DSPORT has the biggest portfolio of combat sports and wrestling shows in the sub-continent including the very popular New Japan Pro Wrestling (World’s second largest Pro-Wrestling show), Bellator MMA (one of the largest MMA promotions in the world), Ring of Honor (third largest wrestling promotion in the United States), Lucha Underground & the Wade Barret Promoted world of Sport Wrestling (WOSW).

Explaining the relevance of the show, he further emphasized, “The show will give a major boost to the Indian Pro-Wrestling industry and will also create opportunities for the young pool of talent who want to make their future in the sports entertainment business.”
