She is better known as "Hard KD" she is presently undergoing training in Florida. Devi has signed a three-year contract with the wrestling world.

I am the only one at the international level to be doing so. Many girls in India avoid getting into WWE wrestling seeing the clothes that most women in this sport wear inside the ring. I have broken that image and more girls in my country are getting inspired."
