Mumbai: Braun Strowman, a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar, announced that Indian wrestler Kavita Devi will compete in the Mae Young Classic Tournament to be held next month in the US.
Devi is the lone Indian woman among the 32 female competitors, who will take part in the tournament to be held on August 8 and 9 in Florida.
The US-based company last year had announced the Mae Young Classic Tournament, which is named after WWE Hall of Famer and one of the greatest WWE Superstars, Mae Young.
Featuring 32 female competitors from across the globe, it will be a single-elimination tournament.
Strowman, who was in Mumbai yesterday, said this is an all-woman tournament and Devi's participation in it will help in getting more audience.

"Every time he (Mahal) comes to the fight, he brings it up," added Strowman.
