Wrestler
    (1882-1960)
    Birth name is Ghulum Mohammed
    Wrestled in India
    Former India Wrestling Champion
    Known as ‘Lion of the Punjab’
    Having wrestled in the very beginning of the century, his career and legacy is largely unknown, even by the most knowledgeable wrestling historians.
    When he became the Champion of India, he laid out an open challenge but the only challenges he would accept were from foreigners who had already held the title as their nation’s champion. He would only make an exception to his rule if the opponent could first beat his brother.
    His match against Stanislaus Zbyszko in India in front of 60,000 fans saw Gama pin Zbyszko in 30 seconds, although there’s heavy speculation that Zbyszko was paid to take the dive.
    He died broke.
    Many wrestling historians recognize him as the single greatest shoot wrestler in the history of the sport.
    He excelled during a time in wrestling where it was 100% real and wrestlers were really fighting each other.
    After conquering the wrestlers of India, he took his title all over Europe where he beat the world’s most renowned grapplers.
    Due to Gotch and Hackenschmidt refusing Gama’s challenge, Ring Magazine referred to The Great Gama as possibly the only wrestler of modern times to master both those men.
    His matches would last hours at a time.
    He retired undefeated after wrestling over 5,000 matches.
