The Bollywood Boyz seemed to have what WWE desired as they continue to make inroads in the Indian market.
Even Vince McMahon thought so until the company released Samir & Sunil Singh on June 26.
Speaking to Sean Waltman on Pro Wrestling 4 Life, The Singh Brothers discussed Vince seeing them in their gear and their meetings with him.
"Every meeting we had with Vince was amazing. He was always kind and appreciated everything we had done. The first time we were working after a bit, we came up in our pink gear and glasses. Vince walked right up to us and was like, 'That's fucking money.' He was always so good to us and that's why we were always so appreciative. We were always on the right track and learning on the fly and getting ready," said Samir.
WWE put more eggs in the India basket with the Superstar Spectacle in January. Teaming with Jinder Mahal, the Bollywood Boyz lost to Drew McIntyre & Indus Sher (Rinku & Saurav).
"They are looking for big Indian stars and the next breakout star. They're trying, but we're the only two Indian guys there that are TV ready and have the confidence that we can go in with anybody and deliver. In January at Superstar Spectacle, they put us in there with the new kids. They have a long way to go. We were told to shine them up and everyone was telling us in the back that we made them look like a million bucks. That's our job. Being WWE TV-ready is a lot different than being a wrestler. A lot of them are still learning," said Sunil.
Samir added, "India is booming and we were ready and primed for whatever opportunity came to us and we know how to work and are charismatic guys."
