TNA Wrestling announces three India dates, Great Khali's involvement

Great Khali

On Monday, TNA Wrestling officially announced what has been reported for months: they will be touring Mumbai, India, with shows announced for 12/2, 12/3 and 12/4.

The two key parts of the announcement were that Dalip Singh, the former Great Khali, will be working with the promotion, although they did not announce him as wrestling on the shows. They also did not announce Impact tapings for the three events. They did mention that the 12/4 show would be a One Night Only PPV taping that will air live on Sony SIX in India -- the company's regular TV station in the market. However, all three shows will be taped.

TNA said Singh and John Gaburick would be searching for new Indian talent for TNA. The company is heavily focusing on Indian and is trying to find new native wrestlers. Singh runs a wrestling school there. TNA announced that Singh will be part of the selection process, will mentor prospective Indian wrestlers, and will be endorsing the live events.
