AEW signs 7’3″ former NBA player Satnam Singh

AEW announced the signing of former Dallas Mavericks center Satnam Singh who begins his wrestling training at The Nightmare Factory.

Singh is known as the first-ever NBA player from India and is 7’3″ and Cody Rhodes and QT Marshall’s school will be in charge of getting him ready for prime time television.

“While we’ve recently secured some of the hottest free agents on the planet, I’m also deeply committed to cultivating our own homegrown stars and the next generation of extraordinary professional wrestlers,” said AEW President Tony Khan in a press release. “In addition to Satnam’s commanding 7’3″ stature, I was impressed with his high level of athleticism and charisma. He’s an exciting addition to our roster, and I’m looking forward to our fans getting to know Satnam’s personality and watching his development.”

The move comes after AEW struck a television deal to broadcast both Dynamite and Rampage in India on Eurosport.
