[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."

[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."

[0.0] "I do not know how Vince pushed this man. He was bad in APW apparantly. He could not wrestle well. He sucks on the mic. He cannot wrestle well only good at brawling. His matches are dull."
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."

[1.0] "Horrible wrestler, who looks lost almost all the time. His one saving grace - has a good physique for a giant and has a pretty distinct look, that makes him memorable."

[10.0] "The Great Khalli of 2007 is the best in the world, Punjabi Prision Match vs Batista is Awesome"
Leone wrote on 28.10.2013:
[1.0] "When the Great Khali wrestled in New Japan over 10 years ago, he showed a surprising amount of skill for his size (Not too much, but at least you could see he was able to bend his knees). When he arrived to the WWE, it was evident that either WWE brought him in too late, or they told him to work minimalistically. His matches are terrible, he looks like a man walking on stilts, and the fact that they put him in the main event and put the World title on him once is an absolute joke. The Undertaker was unable to work a decent match with him. That's how bad he is."
