International wrestlers from 20 different countries including Canada, Japan and United States are set to arrive in Pakistan next week to hold wrestling events in different cities of Pakistan.
This is a big news for the local fans of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The wrestlers will be seen in WWE-styled action in Pakistan in May and November this year.
The wrestling events will be held in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar.
Pakistani professional wrestler Baadshah Pehalwan Khan will also accompany the other wrestlers. “Pakistan Will Rise” or “Pakistani Kissi Se Kum Nahin” are his catchphrases as a representative of his homeland “whose only purpose is to show to the entire world that he’s the only conqueror from Asia and a noble warrior of Pakistan”.
Following successful staging of Pakistan Super League 2017 final, it seems as if other international games are also coming to the country.
Former Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho also visited Pakistan last week in a bid “to promote the sport in the country”.
