Rajesh Kaul, Chief Revenue Officer - Distribution & International Business and Head - Sports Cluster, Sony Pictures Networks India:

"It gives us immense pleasure to call ourselves the home for WWE, India's most loved sports entertainment property. We at Sony Sports Network, aim to continue strengthening our fanbase in India by creating a deeper engagement with the youth. Our campaign sets out to build relevance with our target demographics and providing them with a holistic WWE experience."

Drew McIntyre, WWE Superstar:

"The passion of our fans in India is just extraordinary and this country has surpassed all my wildest expectations. Working with Karthi and John Abraham and the talented team at Sony Sports Network has been awesome. These actors are amongst the humblest human beings I have ever come across. Perhaps this is phase one of Drew McIntyre's movie career in India…"

John Abraham, Bollywood Superstar:

"I have been a huge WWE fan since childhood and working with Drew McIntyre on the WWE campaign has been nothing short of an exceptional experience. The level of athleticism and fitness that these WWE Superstars have is really amazing and its therefore no surprise that together they make WWE such a fantastic product to watch."

Karthi, South Superstar:

"I am excited to be associated with an iconic franchise like WWE. Nostalgic memories of watching this action packed sport makes this association significantly special for me. Shooting for this campaign with Drew was a lot of fun, especially teaching him the dialogues in Tamil and discussing our favourite WWE superstars and love for food and cricket."

Fans can watch the LIVE coverage of WWE Raw on Tuesdays, WWE NXT on Wednesdays and WWE SmackDown on Saturdays on Sony Sports Ten 1 (English), Sony Sports Ten 3 (Hindi) & Sony Sports Ten 4 (Tamil & Telugu) channels.
