[4.0] "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 (which did more the devalue the belt instead of elevating Khali) before being saddled with a litany of embarrassing gimmicks. Khali's size was awesome, but he never demonstrated the ability in the ring or on the microphone to warrant anything higher than a mid-carder. Through improving his image within the WWE, Khali was able to use his elevated position to work as an ambassador in India in addition to making limited media appearances outside of wrestling."

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)."
