Reason For Kavita Devi’s Superstar Spectacle Absence Revealed

WWE’s Superstar Spectacle event was the company’s first step towards establishing an Indian outpost of the NXT brand.

Featured on the card were main roster heavy hitters such as Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, AJ Styles, Bayley and the returning Jinder Mahal, who were paired with emerging stars such as Jeet Rama, NXT tag team Indus Sher and Dilsher Shanky.

One wrestler who was notable for her absence however was Mae Young Classic stand out Kavita Devi.

Devi had originally been scheduled for the show and was mooted to team with Charlotte Flair against Bayley and Natalya.

However, Devi had reportedly returned to India due to a family issue, leaving Sareena Sandhu to team with ‘The Queen’ and in turn, pick up the pinfall victory for her team.

Devi still appears to be a part of WWE’s Indian expansion plans though, as she was afforded a video feature on the show.
