Show to air Saturday and Sunday nights on the Colors Network

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (January 19, 2012) – TNA Entertainment, LLC announced today a partnership with Endemol India Pvt. Limited to produce “Ring Ka King,” a professional wrestling show for India that will also feature several TNA superstars. The show will air on the Colors Network Saturday and Sunday nights, with the debut airing Saturday, January 28, 2012.

“Ring Ka King,” host is the legendary Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh. The show will feature a cast of Indian superstars, as well as such TNA superstars as Abyss, Matt Morgan, Mickie James, Magnus and Scott Steiner. The partnership with TNA Entertainment, producer of IMPACT WRESTLING and Endemol India, a world leader in entertainment programming, is the first co-production for the two companies.

“The international market for professional wrestling is expanding,” states TNA Entertainment Executive Vice President Andy Barton. “Until now, most professional wrestling content has been exported from the United States. This partnership brings TNA’s expertise in producing professional wrestling programming and Endemol’s vast experience in content creation and distribution to a localized, scalable product for the Indian market.”

Executive producer Jeff Jarrett added, “Professional wrestling fans around the world have always related to one of their own, and the lack of properly trained talent and the infrastructure to produce a high quality professional wrestling show have always been a hindrance to create this type of program. With the tag team of TNA Entertainment and Endemol, we have the perfect one-two punch to bring the concept to fruition.”

TNA and Endemol have created a professional wrestling school in Mumbai to develop Indian talent. A three city casting call was held to engage and identify candidates for the school.

      Sorry, but as the post indicates, the wrestling school will be in Chicago, IL, USA and run by AAW.

      What is taking place in India is a new wrestling show by TNA and Endemol India, which is a completely separate piece of news from AAW’s wrestling school. As a result, if you are looking for a reputable wrestling school in India, it may be worth contacting TNA directly via their contact page at to see if they can point you in the right direction.

      EDIT: My apologies, there is indeed mention of a TNA wrestling school in India too, unfortunately however there is no specific details on it, so to find it you may have to contact TNA directly using the above contact page link.

      Unfortunately I have no idea other than “India”, as I have not heard or read any specific details on the location, other than the fact that some episodes have been filmed there (whether that is the case for all of the episodes, or whether some were filmed in the US, I don’t know that either).

      If you are interested in attending a “Ring Ka King” taping, it may be worth getting in touch with TNA directly via their contact page at, as they may be able to provide you with the information you are looking for.
