According to The Indian Express, budding Indian wrestler Rajesh Kumar is set to travel to Japan to participate in the WWE training program.

Dubbed as the “New Khali”, Rajesh – at 7 feet 5 inches tall – is four inches taller than The Great Khali. The giant, weighing in at 335 pounds, hails from a village named Dhanora in Ambala district.

Speaking on his ambitions, Rajesh said: “Once my training in Japan is complete, I will hopefully be selected by WWE to enter their international championships.”

At the age of 39, Rajesh might not have time on his side but that doesn’t deter him one bit.

“When Khali came to India two years ago, I had the opportunity to meet him. Khali motivated me to join this field and I haven’t looked back since,” he added.
