10 Reasons Why You Need To Respect The Great Khali

Size Does Matter.

Randy Orton isn't much of an actor, which implies he felt a genuine fear when The Great Khali made his arm-swinging return to WWE TV to aid Jinder Mahal in successfully retaining SmackDown Live!'s top title at the climax of their woeful 30-minute Punjabi Prison match.

Name-dropped in the build-up to the clash, it was always possible he would make an appearance, but to do so in such decisive fashion allowed him to return near the very top of the card.

Restricting Randy Orton's progress and allowing Mahal to hop out over the top of the outer structure, Khali served his purpose and completed 'The Maharaja's stable as the giant monster in comedy contrast to the diminutive Singh Brothers.

Wrestling fans have long memories, and his saunter onto the stage drew a humongous reaction that diminished just as fast when it became clear he was coming to get 'The Viper'.

Following the enormous surprise pop, many cheers turned to jeers as crowd members gradually reminisced over some of Khali's worst moments, but it's worth paying heed to the oft-forgotten highlights his choppy WWE tenures produced.
