MUMBAI: 2017 is set to start with a bang for Indian sports audiences. After the Aircel Chennai Open and Super Fight League already lined up, Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) is all set to broadcast the second season of the Pro Wrestling League (PWL), starting from the 02 January. The event is set to take place at the KD Jadhav Indoor Stadium in New Delhi and will be beamed live on Sony Max, Sony ESPN channels and the digital sibling, SonyLiv.

For fans of wrestling, one of the main attractions of the second edition of PWL is the impressive line-up of home-grown talent that includes Olympic Bronze medallist, Sakshi Malik, the Phogat sisters: Geeta, Ritu Sangeeta and Babita Kumari, Bajrang Punia, as well as Sandeep Tomar to name a few. In addition to this, some of the top International wrestlers like Olympic Gold medallist Erica Wiebe, Odunayo Folasade, Sofia Mattsson, Togrul Asgarov and Vladimir Khinchegashvili will also be seen battling it out in their respective weight categories.

This season PWL will have six teams - Jaipur Ninjas, Delhi Sultans, Mumbai Maharathi, CDR Punjab Royals, Haryana Hammers and UP Dangal, which is making its debut this season.

With the staggering success of the recently released movie Dangal, which chronicles the journey of the Phogat sisters, this season of the PWL has already generated high levels of interest. 2017 is definitely going to begin with a bang with this high octane season of PWL as wrestling fans all over India eagerly wait for what is expected to be one of the biggest wrestling events to watch out for.
