Pro Wrestling League 2017: Punjab Royals setup final date with Haryana Hammers
Punjab Royals beat defending champions Mumbai Maharathi 5-4 in the second semifinal on Wednesday. They will now clash with Haryana Hammers in the final match of the Pro Wrestling League 2017 on Thursday.

Both teams exhibited some extraordinary wrestling techniques which kept the crowds entertained in a see-saw battle between the two teams. In the 74-kg category, Jabrayil Hasanov won the first bout of the evening against Punjab's Jitendra by 18-2.

Later, Odunayo Adekuoroye led Punjab's fight back by defeating Lalita Sehrawat 16-0 in the women's 53-kg category. Rio Olympics gold medallist Vladimir Khinchegashvili of Punjab beat Rahul Aware in the men's 57-kg category to give Punjab the lead. 

However, Erica Elizabeth Wiebe, who's the regning champion in the women's 75-kg category, brought Mumbai back into the contest by beating Vasilisa Marzaliuk 2-1. 

The equation again tilted in Punjab's favour after Ilyas Bekbulatov defeated Vikas 17-0 in the 65-kg bout, and that too within just a minute. Mumbai again made a comback with Pavlo Oliynyk clinching the 97-kg bout against Krishan Kumar 12-0.

However, the highlight of yesterday evening at the Pro Wrestling League was the exhibition match between yoga guru Baba Ramdev and 2008 Olympics silver medallist Andriy Stadnik. Sporting his usual saffron langot, the Baba convincingly defeated the Ukrainian wrestler 12-0 in a one-sided bout to avgenge the loss suffered by Sushil Kumar at the Beijing Olympics at the hands of Stadnik. But the suprising part was Stadnik's meek surrender to Baba, who's also a sponsor of PWL.
