Last year, they were signed to Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling (GFW) promotion. In October 2015, the Bollywood Boyz became the first ever GFW tag team champions. Watch them in action here.

  1. Wow, man another great pick (and pics! :)

    I can't believe how tiny he is next to Jinder. He's like the Indian Davey Richards though Davey is still shorter.

    I think I have a weak spot for Bro types. He should be a Bollywood Bro haha

    1. Jinder is 6 ft. 5 inches tall, a good 7 inches taller than Gurv, although the former looks really huge next to the latter.

    2. It's amazing how tall the average wrestler is. Devitt looks small but he's 5'11" (180cm)

  2. I've known about Gurv for a long time. I liked it better when he didn't have streamers or whatever on his legs, like in this 2010 match against Scotty Mac: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98564arIvKw

    That match is notable because Scotty actually begins by commenting on Gurv's physique, telling his competitor how good he looks and challenging him to a pose-down.

    Oh, and I've long had a soft spot for Nelson Creed too (featured in the video Bruno linked to). I believe he's in his 40s now but he still looks good.

  3. I guess the streamers are part of the Bollywood gimmick? I also saw he had a British Bulldog shirt on so maybe that also influenced that fashion choice?

    Always loved how Scotty confidently embraced such an open fun-loving personality to his masculinity

    1. Streamers? Gag me! Even Chris Andrews elicits nil by way of response from me when he is decked out like a high school j.v.football cheerleader. I am still gagging. Now maybe if the wrestler wore scant streamers instead of trunks--who can say?

    2. Stupid streamers. At least these are full. They look especially stupid when they are skimpy.
      They make me sad, because they remind me of the self-destructive Kerry Von Erich's prosthetic leg. He had those streamers to cover up the difference between his two boots.
