Continental Wrestling Entertainment (2016-2017)

On February 24, 2016, Kavita Dalal had entered the school of The Great Khali called Continental Wrestling Entertainment, to begin training in professional wrestling.

Her debut on the CWE ring was on June 11, 2016 during a live event, where she under the ring name Kavita, had accepted the "Open Challenge" of B.B. Bull Bull. On June 18 during a new live event, Kavita was attacked by B.B. Bull Bull when she was between the rostrum. On June 25 during a new live event, she made her debut as a professional wrestler under her new name of ring Hard KD where she had teamed with Sahil Sangwan in a failed effort against B.B. Bull Bull and Super Khalsa in the first mixed tag team match in the history of the CWE. On July 9th during a new live event, Hard KD and Sahil Sangwan faced again against B.B. Bull Bull and Super Khalsa, however the fight ended in a no–contest after Shanky Singh entered and attacked Sahil Sangwan.

On September 3, 2016 during a new live event, Hard KD would defeat debutant Reeta after applying a Spear. On November 15 during a show in Panipat, India, she teamed up with Katie Forbes to defeat Jayme Lee and Santana Garrett.

On April 22, 2017 during a new live event, Hard KD faced Neeraj and managed to defeat him. On May 6 after returning to defeat Neeraj in a revenge bout, Bhaskar appeared stating that he was in love with her and while he was dancing to conquer her she attacked him.

WWE (2017-present)

When WWE revealed that it was going to perform the first tests in Dubai, Arab Emirates during five days between April 25 and April 29 of 2017, it had been reported that Hard KD with seven of its companions of the CWE were part of the realized tests by the WWE.

On June 22, 2017 via an ESPN Twitter, it had been revealed that Hard KD had been announced as one of the participants of the upcoming WWE tournament called Mae Young Classic. Two days later on June 24, the website of the newspaper called Times of India, confirmed the participation of Hard KD in the tournament and being thus the first Indian fighter within the company. It was later revealed that his ring name in the tournament would be Kavita Devi.

On July 13, 2017, she was introduced during the Mae Young Classic: Parade of Champions, a pre-tournament event broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook. On August 28, Kavita (as a villainess) was defeated by Dakota Kai in the first round of the tournament. On October 15, 2017, it was announced that Kavita signed a contract with WWE, and reported to the WWE Performance Center in January 2018.

Kavita's first appearance came at WrestleMania 34 on April 8, 2018, participating in the inaugural WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal, where she was eliminated by Sarah Logan. On April 19, Kavita made her NXT in-ring debut as a heel at a live event in Sanford, Florida, teaming with the villainous Aliyah in a losing effort against Dakota Kai and Steffanie Newell.
