There’s a silent revolution Arm Wrestling revolution brewing in India and Pro Panja League is leading from the front.
India’s first-ever professional Arm Wrestling league has changed the landscape of professional Arm Wrestling in India. It has raised the bar extremely high by being the first Arm Wrestling League to air on a premium terrestrial sports channel in Sony.
It is also the first Arm Wrestling league in India to stream its content on pay-per-view to the global audience via BookMyShow.
Now the Pro Panja League has taken it up a notch and as reported by us earlier this week, the league is in talks with industry leaders to start a reality show featuring 20 of the best Arm Wrestlers in India.
The reality show will be in line with what the UFC has done with the Ultimate Fighters. UFC which is the biggest Mixed Martial Arts organisation in the world started a reality show called ‘The Ultimate Fighter, which resulted in the overall popularity of the UFC shooting through the roof.
According to our sources, some foreign Arm Wrestling stars will be roped in as judges and possibly referees for the reality show.
While the league owners have been highly secretive about the concept of the reality show, the Sports India Show has found through the sources about the potential concept of the show.
How will the Pro Panja League reality show look like?
The league’s owner Parvin Dabas plans on doing the reality show in India and give the Indian audience a taste of what professional Arm Wrestling looks like at its best.
The reality show will have two teams with 10 Arm Wrestlers in each team. Each team will have a leader who will serve as a mentor and coach. The Arm Wrestlers will have to through all these different types of challenges and eventually, the last remaining participant from each team will battle it out on the Arm Wrestling table and eventually earn a lucrative Pro Panja League contract.
The reality show will show fans how the Arm Wrestlers prepare in the gym and the type of workouts they undergo to prepare themselves. The show will also show the diet pattern these athletes follow and the show will also capture the athletes at their best and worst moments and also see them talk about their motivations and their sacrifices.
