Great Khali launches Continental Wrestling Entertainment (CWE).

Harsha Masand | November, 28 2015

The Great Khali,announced the launch of his Continental Wrestling Entertainment (CWE).
 
Khali said that talks were on with different television channels who want to cover his events, but declined to give further details.
 
Commenting on the reason behind this initiative, Khali said: “I have come a long way since my humble beginning as an ordinary stone cutter in the hills. A simple response to a chance question by a Punjab police inspector who passed me one day while I was working along a road, changed my life for ever. He asked me why was I working so hard even after my shift was completed. My response that unlike others I had a bigger stomach to fill and thus needed to work harder than the rest landed me a job in Punjab police. For the first time in my life, when I got my second salary there, I could actually buy a TV; a decision that changed my life forever – I not just got introduced to wrestling through seeing WWE but decided to make it my passion and profession."

The fights which are scheduled for February 2016 will feature both international as well as Indian pro-wrestlers including The Great Khali himself.
 
The Chief Minister said that Uttarakhand was slated to host the National Games in 2018 and the event in February would also be used to encourage more people from the state to come forward for sports. He said two stadiums were being built for the purpose in Haldwani and Dehradun. Rawat added that he was sending six or seven wrestlers to Punjab to train under the tutelage of Khali at his academy in Jalandhar.
 
Rawat said “I have always said that the youth is not just our future but also our present and in a young country and state like ours their development and betterment is of prime importance to any ruling dispensation. I was really impressed by what Khali is attempting to do with this very popular modern day version of one of our most traditional sports - Wrestling.”  He said the aim of his youth outreach initiative, #CM4Youth, was to understand the aspirations of the young and draw up programmes to fulfill these.

In fact, Rawat had to stand on a stool to put a shawl around Khali while welcoming him, providing a great photographic moment.
