Police file a case against World Wrestling Federation stars

Ludhiana, Oct 27 : Ludhiana Police have filed a case against World Wrestling Federation (WWF) stars, after they vented their ire on journalists following the cancellation of their show in the city.

"I have registered a case because prima facie all ingredients are there. We will study the offences and see what sections go with it," said Snehdeep Sharma, Superintendent of Police.

"We have started investigations into the case and have taken their passports in our custody. We will do what all is required. We have all the evidence, statements of the witnesses," said R.K. Jaiswal, Senior Superintendent of Police.

Wrestlers reportedly roughed up journalists on October 25 following an announcement that a wrestling championship slated for October 28 was cancelled.

The Universal Wrestling Stars Inc. (UWSI), a company based in Canada, had recently announced that it would be organising its international wrestling championship 'India vs. Rest of the World - War of Legends' at Patiala, in addition to the scheduled venues of Ludhiana and Jalandhar.

The tickets for the championship, which was to be held at the Polo Grounds on October 28, were priced at Rs 250, Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.

 The USP of this Championship was that globally acclaimed Indian wrestling stars like 'King of all Wrestlers' Tiger Jeet Singh, former WWF and WWE wrestling superstar Tiger Ali Singh were to take on wrestlers from all over the world including the invincible 'The Giant', the uncontrollable Killer Pane, Mountain of a Man Yokozuna, the Ultimate Fighting Champion Wolfgang, the 'King of the Old School' Steve Corino, pure Muscleman Nikita and the "Stunning" Jerry Lynn.
