Zeeshan Basheer, the CEO of Professional Wrestling Entertainment, has stated that he is in talks with The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan about bringing them to Pakistan.
In 2017, Zeeshan, a sports fan from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), created a professional wrestling tournament in which 25 international wrestlers competed.
“Back in 2017, we staged a wrestling entertainment event in Pakistan with worldwide talents. We had planned to host the second season in Pakistan, but COVID-19 prevented us from doing so,” he stated in a video statement on Monday.
According to the organiser, he now wants to bring the event back to the country for a second season, for which he is in talks with iconic WWE performers.
“We’ve started preparations for the second season of that event to be held in the country once more. We’re talking to The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, and other well-known wrestlers about it. We shall have some good news for Pakistanis soon,” he continued.
The cancellation of the New Zealand and England tours, according to Zeeshan, set a poor precedent. He stated that Pakistan is safe for all types of sports and has demonstrated this by hosting numerous international sporting events in recent years.He anticipated that hosting the second season of PWE, which features a star-studded cast, would help to restore Pakistan’s soft image around the world.
