New WWE Performance Center recruits from India were announced today and two were not only trained by The Great Khali … but they’re also nearly his size.

According to the announcement from WWE.com, the following students have reported for duty at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando:

  • 7-foot, 310-pound Gurvinder Singh; a cricketer/actor trained by The Great Khali
  • 7-foot-2, 340-pound Sukhwinder Grewal; a former basketball player trained by Khali
  • 25-year-old Laxmi Kant Rajpoot who has experience in javelin throwing and taekwondo.

WWE has kept an eye on Khali’s CWE Academy in New Delhi for years and discovered Kavita Devi there. It’s also where they held a tryout back in 2017 with Canyon Ceman and Norman Smiley.
