Over 50 wrestlers went under the hammer today; six franchisees -- Team Punjab, Team Haryana, Team Bengaluru, Team Uttar Pradesh, Team Mumbai, and Team Delhi -- participated in the auction.

The franchisees had a purchasing cap of Rs 2 crore each. Stamped at a base price of Rs 33 lakh in the 'Icon' category, Yogeshwar was bought by Team Haryana for Rs.39.70 lakh, while Sushil was bought by Team Uttar Pradesh for Rs 38.20 lakh.
