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:

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.”
