On July 18th, Bigg Boss and Nach Baliye 7 contestant Sangram Singh made India proud by winning the World Wrestling Professionals (WWP) Commonwealth Wrestling Heavyweight Championship, which was held in Nelson Mandela Bay, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Sangram Singh made a comeback with this wrestling championship after three years. He defeated Canadian wrestler Joe Legend. He had to sign the 'Last Man Standing' contract, in other words, a death contract. As this contract had conditions that if in case, during the match, any unfortunate event including death occurred, the organisers will not be responsible.

During the match, it is even reported that Sangram suffocated to death as his opponent was on top of him for over 10 minutes.
After lot of hard work, Sangram emerged as a winner. With this victory, Sangram has become the first Indian to win such an honour at an international level.
In the recent interview to a leading daily, Sangram thanked his coach Pandit Satvirji, family and friends for their support. He was quoted as saying by the leading daily, "This was a remarkable moment for me and a matter of great honour for the nation that had pinned all its hopes on me.
Sangram added, "I have put in a lot of hard work and training and it gives me pride that all these days of toiling and sweating it out during the practice sessions have finally paid off."
It has to be recalled that Sangram and his beau Payal Rohatgi got eliminated from Nach Baliye 7 as they couldn't impress the judges, but real reason behind the couple's elimination was Sangram's wrestling match and he had to then complete some formalities that involved paper work. Sangram's first priority has always been wresting.
Well, now we can say Sangram had made a right choice. And we congratulate the hero for the victory.
