Postponed after organisers claimed that their plans were thrown haywire by demonetisation, the second season of Pro Wrestling League will now be held from January 2-19 here.

Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) on Wednesday announced the revised dates of the competition.

"I am very happy with the new dates. We would be having ample time to be here with our family on Christmas," said Olympic gold medallist Erica Wiebe of Canada.

"Despite challenges, we take pride in hosting this mega wrestling event that features the largest pool of Olympians and World Champions and we promise the participation of top players of the world in large numbers. 

I am very certain that wrestling enthusiasts would welcome the move despite all the challenges that have come our way," said WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The six teams participating this year will be from Delhi, Mumbai, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Jaipur.

About a dozen of Olympic medallists would be the attraction of this league. The Indians in action will be Yogeshwar Dutt, Sakshi Malik and Sandeep Tomar.
