The Great Khali will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021, WWE India has confirmed.
Following the announcement that Molly Holly and Eric Bischoff will be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame this year, the news was delivered to The Great Khali by Ranjin Singh – the former manager of the Punjabi Playboy – and broadcast on WWE India’s IGTV channel.
The Great Khali is a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, wrestling for the company between 2006 and 2014. At Battleground in 2017, Khali returned to assist then-WWE Champion Jinder Mahal to victory in a Punjabi Prison Match against Randy Orton, before also appearing at The Greatest Royal Rumble in 2018 – to be eliminated by Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley.
As both the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 are being inducted into the Hall of Fame on the same night, Bischoff will fittingly be inducted on the same night as the nWo. The Hall of Fame ceremony, which takes place on Tuesday, April 6th, also sees John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield, The British Bulldog, Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger and The Bella Twins inducted.
Don’t miss The Great Khali take his place in the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2021 Induction Ceremony, Tuesday, April 6, streaming exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else. The ceremony will honor both the 2020 and 2021 classes.
