Noam Dar Is Obsessed with the Great Khali!
Even though the commentary team was extremely excited about his return, it seems like Noam Dar had a true nerd moment after the Great Khali's appearance.
It seems like I am not the only one who is excited to see the Great Khali back because Noam Dar appears to be quite the fan. In case you missed it, the Great Khali made a surprise appearance at Battleground this weekend! So, let us give you a quick recap if you missed it!
Supporting Jinder Mahal
Jinder Mahal was in danger of losing the title to Randy Orton during the Punjabi prison match, despite the help of the Singh brothers.
Still, Randy got a nasty surprise as he was climbing on the outer cage because the Great Khali came out and sabotaged Randy’s victory! In the end, Jinder took the win and retained the title.
While the loss of Randy Orton was devastating for many of his fans, nobody expected the return of the Great Khali. For many fans, his return certainly signified a very strange PPV.

Does this mean Alicia Fox is no longer the most important person in his life?
The WWE’s Plans with the Great Khali
The initial response of the Great Khali’s return was positive (like Noam Dar’s) until he cost Randy Orton the title. Of course, this is no fault of the Great Khali himself, because Jinder Mahal’s title run has been filled with controversy.
I personally believe that the WWE got the Great Khali involved because of the lack of support Jinder has received from the WWE Universe. Even though he is a heel and supposed to be booed, I believe that his title run has left much to be desired in the eyes of the WWE management.
So, does this mean that the Great Khali will be sticking around? Only time will tell!
Bad Points for WWE Storytelling
Yes, it is always nice to see the Great Khali, but a lot of fans were disappointing with how his return unfolded. Many people believed the return of the Indian giant was somewhat unbelievable, especially the ease he handled Orton with.
Here are some of the responses of the WWE Universe:
A good twist is always fun, but objectively, a main-event Great Khali run-in probably shouldnt be a PPV talking point in 2017. #battleground

Tonight was definitely the worst WWE ppv of 2017 so ending it with the return of The Great KHALI was so poetic 😂 #WWEBattleground

I have to be honest, I thought the match between Mahal and Orton was horrendous, until the surprise return of the Great Khali. Normally, I can smell an impending return a mile away, but this time I could not!
Other than the last match, the PPV was still better than Great Balls of Fire in my opinion. Still, I’m curious to learn what you guys think about the latest SmackDown developments!
