MUMBAI — World Wrestling Entertainment announced Dec. 3 that it will visit India in search of the next generation of WWE Superstars by holding the first-ever talent tryout here in March 2019.

The four-day tryout will give up to 40 athletes from the country the opportunity to showcase their abilities with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

The talent pool will comprise elite performers with a diverse background in sports and athletics including kushti, kabaddi, wrestling, American football, basketball, combat sports, cricket and bodybuilding.
