WWE will be heading to India in 2019 for its first-ever tryouts in the country.
WWE announced today that a four-day talent tryout will be held in Mumbai, India in March 2019. It will feature up to 40 participants "with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida." Participants can apply through the WWE Performance Center's website, which is available in Hindi starting today.
“India has an extremely large and passionate fanbase and remains a top priority for WWE as we continue to localize content globally,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque said. “I am confident this latest talent tryout will result in a world-class pool of athletes ready to pursue their dream of becoming the next WWE Superstar from India.”
WWE is currently holding tryouts in Santiago, Chile this week. During November's European tour, a set of tryouts took place in Cologne, Germany.
