If you were a fan of the Mae Young Classic, then you’re not alone. Plenty of people saw the groundbreaking tournament and with that visibility, a lot of people were turned onto some of the top female competitors from around the globe.
One competitor, Kavita Devi was a part of something pretty special during the tournament when the YouTube video from her match went viral and blew everyone else’s numbers out of the water. But it seems this fame might have caused a rift in her own marriage
Devi recently spoke to the Hindustan Times where she complained about her husband’s jealousy. He is a weightlifter and had some local pro wrestling experience while using the name Hard KD, but his wife is much more recognizable than him at this point. She says he gets angry when people recognize her in public and this seems to be an ongoing issue.
Kavita Devi explained how her husband lives under the old mindset of a male-dominating worldview which really plays into the animosity he seems to hold for his wife’s success. Now Devi, a girl who grew up so poor that she had to steal money from a temple to afford toothpaste seems to be in a very high point of her career but there seems to be something keeping her from really enjoying her accomplishment in the form of her husband’s ideology.
Let’s hope that Devi, who is now signed to NXT can work things out with her husband so he can realize that what’s good for her is going to benefit him as well.
