It's real and it's spectacular: Erica Wiebe stars in India's flashy Pro Wrestling League

Erica Wiebe is officially a pro wrestler. 

But the Olympic gold medallist won’t be smashing a folding chair over anyone’s back or tossing anyone into a turnbuckle. Instead, she’s joined India’s Pro Wrestling League 2, a six-team freestyle wrestling competition being held Jan. 2-19 in Delhi.

While there are no piledrivers, the league does feature booming announcers, flashy pyrotechnics, network TV coverage and real blood.
