The Singh Brothers (Samir and Sunil) spoke with Sportskeeda on a number of wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights:

Getting beat up by Jinder Mahal:

“We deserved it! We deserved it. We let him down! 2-on-1 against AJ Styles; we had a huge opportunity. AJ is one of the best wrestlers in the world, probably in the last few decades. He truly is Phenomenal, and it was an opportunity of a lifetime. And we let The Maharaja down. And he [Mahal] had every right to put us in our place for that. Lesson learned, brother. Lesson learned.”

Learning from Shawn Michaels at the WWE Performance Center:

“Yes. We’re very lucky. When we started in NXT, the (WWE) Performance Center, Shawn Michaels had just moved. And we kind of gravitated towards him, and he took a liking to us. I think he saw a lot of Marty [Jannetty] and Shawn in us. Because we were known as ‘The Bollywood Boys’ at that time. Even our gear was a lot like ‘The Rockers’ with the tassels and the bright colors. A lot of our tag team moves were like The Rockers, so he took a liking to us. And I would say Shawn really helped us get to this point. And the cool thing is that he’s the greatest of all time, in our humble opinion. So, to have him there and pick his brain, and ask him questions—We’re like, ‘Hey, what do we do here?’, ‘What do we do there?’. And even to this day, he’s still willing to [help].”

Breaking out and their goal as a tag team:

“Our goal since we were kids was to one day become WWE Tag Team Champions. It would be great to be the first ever WWE Indian-born Tag Team Champions. Jinder was the first WWE Champion — Indian-born. So, that could be a great historic moment for India. Absolutely, the goal is to one day become WWE Tag Team Champions, and the only way that happens is when you start wrestling as a tag team. If that opportunity comes up, great, but right now our focus, our main priority is making sure Jinder becomes two-time WWE Champion.”

Question: So just who are the Bollywood Boyz

Answer: The best Tag Team in Pro Wrestling you may never have heard of.

Living in the pacific northwest following the local pro wrestling scene I’ve got to see some great talent who has been through the local promotion Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling guys like Daniel Bryan, Christopher Daniels, Davey Richards, Kyle O’Reilly, Tyson Kidd, Natayla, Kharma, and Rebecca Knox to name a few. The Bollywood boyz have the making as the next great tag team, two brothers of east indian hertiage from British Columbia, Canada who have toured the indies for the past five years as a tag team. Harv and Gurv Sihra grew up watching wrestling on saturday nights and idolizing Bret Hart.

The Sihra’s have done a lot in there five years as a tag team not just in ECCW as they have taken part of the infamous northern Manitoba death tours that were first made known to the wrestling public by guys like Jericho and Edge. They have also wrestled in India as part of Impact Wrestling’s Ring Ka King and won the tag titles.

A few of the things that make the Bollywood Boyz great are their charisma and connect with the fans be it getting a modest 300 seat indy crowd in Vancouver to dance in with their entrance theme Punjabi MC’s Mundian to bach ke or causing hysteria in India these guys know how to get a crowd going.

Another strong point is their smoothness as a tag team, they get how to manage a match as tag team be it as heels or faces. They know when to make the hot tag, how to get heat with illegal double teams and they their move set is a throw back to teams of yester year.

They have something the WWE doesn’t have yet in that they are of Indian heritage, the WWE’s only star of Indian descent is the Great Khali and while is a big deal in India, I get the feeling he fails to connect with north americans of Indian decent the way the Bollywood Boyz could.

I’ve done a lot of so far about this team so how about I give you guys so clips to watch and check out.
