WWE superstar, The Great Khali, has been planning to start a wrestling league in India. The former World Heavyweight Champion wants to promote wrestling in his homeland and has teamed up with Indian pro-wrestler Sangram Singh in order to put his idea into effect.

"Khali and I are seriously looking at an Indian Wrestling League,” said Sangram, who believes that the concept will be as important to wrestling as the Indian Premier League is to the game of cricket.

“It's been my long-cherished dream to bring a wrestling league to India. By starting a Wrestling League I hope to provide for wrestling the kind of visible and glamorous platform that the IPL has given to cricket."

Khali and Sangram have reportedly met to discuss the prospect. Although there have been no opinions expressed by Khali on the matter, Sangram has stated that Khali is very much interested in the concept. 

"We are trying to take this idea forward in the best way forward.If cricket can be so glamorous and lucrative , I don't see why wrestling should lag behind," he added.
