Khali started his WWE career back in 2006. Of course, he made an instant impression on the WWE Universe with his impressive size.

Taller than 7 feet and weighing 347 pounds, Khali was certainly a world wonder. And due to his size, he also faced some of the company’s biggest stars.

Over the course of his career, Khali faced the likes of John Cena, Batista, Kane and even Shawn Michaels. Needless to say, he worked alongside some of the all-time greats.

It did not take long for Khali to reach the biggest heights in the WWE. Only a year after his debut, Khali won the World Heavyweight Championship.

To win the championship, Khali had to go through two major superstars. Eliminating Batista as well as Kane, The Great Khali was catapulted to superstardom in that moment.

Once he lost the championship, Khali underwent a character transformation. He became the Punjabi Playboy with some iconic moments on the Khali Kiss Cam.

But Khali is much more than a wrestler. In fact, he made some massive changes to the world of sports overall. 

What WWE Did For Khali’s Career

Khali’s WWE career did wonders for him in terms of his general career. Once he became the Heavyweight Champion, he became a hero in his home country.

The Great Khali also reached some mainstream success. He played a role in numerous major films including The Longest Yard, Get Smart, and MacGruber.

Even though he reached mainstream success, Khali never left wrestling behind. In fact, he opened up a wrestling school in India. 

Khali’s induction in the WWE Hall of Fame will be streaming exclusive on Peacock in the US and the WWE Network for the rest of the world.

The 2021 Hall of Fame ceremony is not the only thing taking place, as the 2020 class will also be inducted this year.

The inductees for the 2020 class include the nWo, The Bella Twins, JBL, British Bulldog and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.

Naturally, these superstars were not inducted last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
