Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer’s admiration for wrestling is known to everyone, and the cricketer often expressed the same by various means on social media. Now in a fresh video released by the Kolkata franchise, Iyer flaunted his special move from wrestling and gave a tribute to all-time great Undertaker.
In the video, Iyer unleashed his inner Undertaker and was seen giving a famous chokeslam move to the cameraman after being irritated with the constant clicks. The video was posted on the official Instagram handle of the franchise with the caption, “Venkatesh Iyer unleashing his inner Undertaker!”
Notably, Undertaker recently got retired from professional wrestling and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. The Undertaker is regarded as the best in-ring wrestler of all time, and the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) decided to make him immortal with a life-size statue. The Undertaker statue unveil was done in front of hundreds of members of the WWE Universe during the first night of WrestleMania Axxess.
Earlier, Iyer shared that he is a huge admirer of Seth Rollin and expressed his desire to meet the wrestler. Ahead of IPL, Rollin shared the video with a special message for Iyer.
He said, “My man. It is I, the visionary, the revolutionary, Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins. And I am so, no surprises here, that you are a huge fan of mine. My friend, that feels so good. But you got Indian Premier League ahead of you. So you need my blessing to go and grab that cup. So prepare yourself to be blessed by the visionary and go on and burn it down.”
Speaking of Venkatesh Iyer, he is currently representing Kolkata Knight Riders in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League and seems to be struggling with the bat in the first few games of the league.
So far, he has scored 16, 10 and 3 in the first three games. KKR has won two out of three games and is currently placed second in the points table, while the Galaxy of Knights will lock horns with Mumbai Indians on April 6, at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, in Pune.
