Tricity’s 27-year-old Bhupinder Gujjar, who is Impact Wrestling’s latest Indian pro-wrestling sensation, is the youngest Indian athlete, who has made tricity, the region & the whole country proud by becoming a sought after pro-wrestler at an international level. Gujjar held a press conference at the press club here on being made Impact’s Face in India.
Scott Francis D’Amore, Executive VP, Impact Wrestling said, in a recorded video message from Canada, which was played out at the press meet, “Bhupinder Gujjar was trained by me and has developed into an amazing pro-wrestler. He has everything it takes to be a great representative of the Indian people and culture all over the world. It gives me immense pleasure to announce him as Impact’s face in India.”
“I am happy that Impact has adjudged me as its face in India and now I will work to take the sport of pro-wrestling to the next level,” said Gujjar.
“Wrestling is a great game and a wonderful unifying force. It must be encouraged and promoted. In my new role as India’s ‘Impact face’ I will create more awareness among youth about pro-wrestling,” added Bhupinder Gujjar, who has hit the mark in the International Professional Wrestling Arena – ‘Impact Wrestling’ which was earlier known as TNA.
Replying to a question that Pro-Wrestling was stage-managed and also ‘fake’ Bhupinder said, “Nothing could be farther from the truth. In reality, we as pro-wrestlers have to train hard and develop skills for the sport. How much force is to be used on your opponent, which part of the body the force can be used, everything is scientifically planned. As otherwise major injuries can accrue to wrestlers. Timing is of great essence too. These skills need to be imbibed.”
In reply to another question, he said that “Pro-wrestling is certainly a sport which has become a huge industry with millions of viewers in the west and other parts of the world. It offers multiple opportunities for talented youth.”
