WWE COO Triple H announced Tuesday on Twitter that two premier athletes from India have signed with WWE and have begun training at the WWE Performance Center.

Lovepreet Singh joins WWE from the world of Kabaddi, a sport with origins in ancient India. The 6-foot, 225-pound Singh was one of the top raiders in the World Kabaddi League in 2014 and was a part of the team that won the league championship.

Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 235 pounds, Satinder Ved Pal is a standout in the world of Indian wrestling. He is a two-time national heavyweight champion in Kushti, the traditional form of Indian grappling.

They join the latest class of recruits at the Performance Center, who came to WWE from Mexico, Australia, the United Kingdom, Serbia, Germany, Canada and the United States.
