[2.0] "Simply the worse professional wrestler I have every seen. They let him hold the world title. What was happening in creative back then?"
ggultra2764 wrote on 25.12.2014:
[1.0] "Easily among the worst wrestlers I've seen enter a pro wrestling ring since seeing Giant Gonzales. Guy had no charisma, limited mobility in the ring and a more limited moveset. WWE only seemed to keep him around because of Vince McMahon's fascination with big, muscular men and his appeal with fans in India."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 02.12.2014:
[5.0] "The Great Khali may have been a transitional World Heavyweight Champion, but he never had the skill to be anything more than a lower-card wrestler. Though he had impressive size, his moveset was extremely limited and he had no mic skills to speak of."
Matt Stanson wrote on 05.10.2014:
[2.0] "The worst or one of the worst wrestlers ever, besides Masahiro Chono, MK McKinnan and Steve "Mongo" McMichael. He had no charisma since day one very weak and needs to get into shape before he ends up getting fired. He needs to quit wrestling before his lack of in-ring communication ends up hurting someone or himself."
Rektologist wrote on 23.08.2014:
[0.0] "It's been around 14 years since The Useless Khali's debut and he still has not been fired. He gets no reaction whatsoever. I get that the WWE wants a talent to draw the Indian crowd, but Khali's not it. They should have at least kept Jinder Mahal for that role. Khali can't wrestle, talk, hell he can barely walk, and he certainly can't dance. I even heard that people in India are even embarrassed that he is representing them. If Vince ever wants to see ten digit dollars again he should start by removing this waste. Khali's best match was his Punjabi Prison Match against Batista in '07, and that match was average at best thanks to Batista's robust back to carry him for 20 minutes. I still can't believe that Batista didn't get an A level spinal cord injury from that match."
Phenomenal91 wrote on 03.08.2014:
[0.0] "Not since Giant Gonzalez has there been a more terrible "big man" in the WWE. Gonzalez was worse than Khali, but at least, after bombing at WrestleMania, Gonzalez promptly ended his WWE career. Meanwhile, Khali, despite never getting cheered, booed, or any reaction whatsoever, is still with the WWE. Why? So they can say they have the largest wrestler in the world? It's not a very impressive statement when the man can barely move! Not to mention his utter lack of wrestling talent. Khali's continued employment with the biggest wrestling company in the world despite not having what it takes to be a wrestler in any capacity is one of the reasons why I don't like the WWE. That and Cena."

[1.0] "A very stale act that has been dragged for a while now. I understad the concept, but the execution simply does not suffice."
Ruiner87 wrote on 16.03.2014:
[3.0] "The man can't wrestle, but by some miracle, he's managed to have at least a couple of good singles matches in the WWE, and he seems like a nice guy. He's not the worst giant wrestler in history, which at least counts for something."
AriesMark wrote on 16.02.2014:
[0.0] "Completely unwatchable. Terrible worker overall. His moveset is bland, boring, generic, and one dimensional. The only big man that I would possibly give a worse rating too (if possible) was Giant Gonzales/El Gigante"
ShawnDraven wrote on 05.01.2014:
[0.0] "His one offensive weapon is a chop. He can hardly move around the ring, and he looks like he doesn't understand what's going on around him. Worst big man ever."
