130. The Great Gama
This should be interesting.

The Great Gama might be a name that Western Canadian fans might remember from Stampede Wrestling, but this Great Gama was the very influential wrestler from India who was one of the greatest physical specimens of not just his era but any era.  

Billed as being undefeated for fifty years, he was awarded the Indian version of the World Championship, Gama would take on anyone and in that era of shoot wrestling, he was considered by many to be in a league of one.  His induction to the WWE Hall of Fame depends on how much the Hall wants to view itself as International though we don’t believe the Subcontinent is where they are looking.

The Bullet Points

  • Other Aliases: Gama Pehalwan (Real Name)
  • Billed From: Amritsar, Punjab, British India
  • Key Championships Held: World Champion (India)
  • Why they will get in: Actually, we don’t think he will.
  • Why they won't get in: Arguably he is not even the most known “Great Gama” in North America.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1.   At age 17, wrestled Indian Champion Raheem Bakhsh Sultani Wala to a Draw (1895)
    2.   Wrestled Stanislaus Zbyszko to a Draw  (9/10/10)
    3.   Defeated Raheem Bakhsh Sultani Wala to become the undisputed wrestling champion of India (1911)
    4.   Destroys Zbyszko in a rematch in India in under a minute (1928)
    5.   Defeats Jesse Petersen (1929)

Should The Great Gama be in the Hall of Fame?
