[0.0] "Sorry, maybe a good person, but one of the worst wrestlers in history, boring, clumsy, slow. Making him World champion was one of the most humiliating things they can do to the title and to him."

JMTheBadOne wrote on 12.07.2015:
[6.0] "Acknowledging The Great Khali's career certainly doesn't come without derision (which isn't unwarranted), but one can't ignore the fact that he was one of the more popular wrestlers to come out of India. A legitimate giant who stands at 7'1" and in excess of 400 lbs, Khali got his start in California's APW before going over to establish himself as a mid-card attraction in New Japan. Following the end of his tenure there, he went over the WWE and was rushed to the top with a transitional World Heavyweight Championship reign before being saddled with a litany of embarrassing gimmicks. Though he was never overly impressive in the ring or on the microphone, he was able to use his elevated position to work as an ambassador in India in addition to making limited media appearances outside of wrestling."

[1.0] "Simply the worse professional wrestler I have every seen. They let him hold the world title. What was happening in creative back then?"
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 22.06.2015:
[2.0] "Though a huge man, Khali was largely immobile and never seemed to have the understanding of how to use his size to create a compelling match the way Andre the Giant did. Could be used in small doses as an attraction wrestler, but never really belonged in the main event (and certainly not as a World Title holder)."

Preston Ward Condra wrote on 19.06.2015:
[3.0] "2007 was a low point for the WWE product and The Great Khali was one of the many reasons why. I give him a 3 because at least the guy could draw a reaction from the crowd."

[0.0] "One of the abslolute worst wrestlers of all time. Whenever he walk down to the ring I would always feel bad for him because he can't walk right"
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."
