The Great Khali will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021.
Standing 7-foot-1 and tipping the scales at 347 pounds, Khali made his titanic presence felt from the moment he first entered the WWE Universe in 2006. One of the biggest highlights of his career came in July 2007 when he won a 20-man Battle Royal on SmackDown to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Khali was surprised with the news by his brother and former manager, Ranjin Singh, in an exclusive edition of WWE Now India, published earlier today at WWE India on Instagram.
“You’re going into the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame class. Hey, congratulations, Khali. You are one of the next inductees into the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame. I am so happy and so proud to give you this news.”
The 2021 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will stream Tuesday, April 6 exclusively on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else. This year, the WWE Hall of Fame will include inductees from both the 2020 and 2021 classes. The 2020 ceremony was forced to be delayed by 12 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
