A WWE special for the Indian fan base has been announced for the last week of January 2021.
Sony Sports Network India has begun to advertise for a WWE special called “WWE Superstar Spectacle. It will air on their channel on January 26, 2021, which is Indian Republic Day and a national holiday.
Being advertised to appear on the special are WWE talent of Indian origin; including former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. Aside from Mahal, The Bollywood Boyz, Kavita Devi, and Indus Sher are featured in the announcements.
During the latter half of 2020, reports indicated that WWE is stepping up their attempts to increase their presence in India. An NXT India show is reportedly being taped and should begin releasing episodes soon.
It was reported last month that a filming schedule for the India show had a shooting date for an “India Special” for January 22, 2021. Many people now believe that the aforementioned “India special” is what will be aired on the 26th as the “WWE Superstar Special.
Sony Sports Network India is WWE’s Indian network partner, so it’s not surprising that the special will air on that channel. As of the writing of this post, it’s unknown if the special will also be available on the WWE Network.
