This is not the first time Baba Ramdev challenged an international wrestler. Earlier on the occasion of 20th anniversary of his Ashram in Haridwar, he had challenged Indian-wrestler Sushil Kumar in 2016.

Baba Ramdev’s and Stadnik’s bout was scheduled after Pankaj Rana and Pritam’s bout, which the Punjab wrestler Pankaj won the match on points difference and helped his side make it into the final for the first time.
