IPL-Style Indian Wrestling League Postponed Due To Mild Response From Franchises
The proposed Indian Wrestling League "has been postponed once again due to mild response from prospective franchises," according to the PTI. IWL, a tournament along the lines of the Indian Premier League, "was announced after impressive showing by Indian grapplers at the 2012 Olympics and was initially scheduled for January-February." IWL Commissioner and Chair G. S. Mander said, "There is no possibility of having the proposed league this year. This requires huge investments and we are still working towards it" (PTI, 9/26).
