TNA star Kurt Angle told Business-Standard that the company is searching for talent in India. "We want to promote wrestling in India," Angle said. "I think we are going to become successful and the most effective way to promote in India is to see who the next talent from India is."

Meanwhile, TNA's Indian television partner Sony Six said they are looking for a lot of programming from the company. "There is a huge sports market in India, though it is still dominated by cricket, we see a huge future for wrestling," Multi Screen Media CEO Man Jit Singh said. "We have seen that recently wrestlers and boxers have been winning medals and TNA is a sport of wrestling and entertainment. We will look forward to giving 500 hours of programming each year on Sony Six." Read more at

Powell's POV: Angle and Gail Kim are in India on a promotional tour. I'm not sure how much actual recruiting is being done on this promotional tour, but the company did find Indian talent for their short-lived offshoot promotion Ring Ka King.
