Satnam Singh Bhamara, a basketball player, has signed a deal with a professional wrestling league in the United States to try his hand at the sport.

When the 25-year-old Singh was selected in the NBA draught by the Dallas Mavericks in 2015, he made history.

Before being disqualified for doping, he was the first Indian to be drafted into an NBA team.

Singh follows in the footsteps of NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, who fought Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet in a mixed tag team battle on "AEW: Dynamite" in March with Jade Cargill.

He'll start his pro wrestling career at Atlanta's Nightmare Factory, where he'll compete in the All Elite Wrestling League (AEW).

Satnam Singh surprised Samoa Joe after winning the Ring Of Honor Television Championship over Minoru Suzuki in the main event, according to a video provided by the AEW social media account.

In addition to Satnam's commanding 7'3" stature, I was impressed with his high level of athleticism and charisma
