The Great Khali has been disclosed as a selectee in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021. Khali was surprised by his brother and former manager, Ranjin Singh, in an exclusive edition of WWE Now India, published earlier today on WWE India’s Instagram handle.
The Great Khali will take his position in sports-entertainment history during the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which takes place in the US on Tuesday, April 6, and will air on Sony sports channels and WWE Network on SonyLIV.
Khali made his enormous existence felt when he first joined the WWE Universe in 2006, standing toe-to-toe with the legends like Undertaker and The Deadman. The Great Khali went on to fight many of WWE’s most legendary Superstars, including John Cena, Batista, Shawn Michaels and fellow 2021 Inductee Kane, whom he conquered to pick up some his first win on The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania. The giant’s most remarkable success would come on July 20, 2007, in SmackDown, when Khali outlived 19 of SmackDown’s top Superstars, last eradicating Batista and Kane to win the World Heavyweight Championship.
By virtue of his success in WWE, The Great Khali has become a national hero and a star of the silver screen. Khali has emerged in films like “MacGruber,” “Get Smart,” and “The Longest Yard.” He’s also opened up a wrestling school, helping to get the next generation of Indian Superstar hopefuls ready for the ring.
Don’t miss The Great Khali taking his place in history during the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, airing in India exclusively on Sony sports channels and WWE Network on SonyLIV. The ceremony will feature the inductions of the 2020 class, including The nWo, The Bella Twins, JBL, British Bulldog and Jushin “Thunder” Liger, and the 2021 class, which features Khali, Molly Holly and Eric Bischoff.
