Jeet Rama Criticises WWE's Booking Of Indian Wrestlers

Rama was released last month

Jeet Rama has hit out at WWE for their booking of Indian wrestlers, questioning why the company only ever portrays them as heels. 

Rama was released by WWE in November, having signed a developmental contract with the promotion in 2015, and notably faced AJ Styles in bout at Superstar Spectacle earlier this year.

While Rama maintains he was treated okay during his time in WWE, he questions why the promotion appears to have an issue with presenting Indian wrestlers as anything other than villains.

Speaking with SportsKeeda Wrestling, Rama said: "WWE is a business at the end of the day. I can’t tell them to make business decisions around me. They are doing what they think is right from a business perspective.

"But why is it that you take any Indian WWE wrestler…why are they always made heels? Why are we only presented as villains? Why do they have to behave in such a manner that the audience there insults them and boos them?

"My soul couldn’t come to peace with the fact that I was making money by misrepresenting my country. When I wrestled at a WWE Live Event a few years ago in Delhi, I saw that the Indian audience was booing Jinder Mahal. Isn’t there something seriously wrong if your home audience isn’t cheering for Jinder Mahal?

"At some level we as Indians have to compromise when we go to WWE. This is the weakness I want to eliminate."
