After having his official wrestling profile moved on the WWE's website from the active roster to alumni list, it was rumoured that the WWE had released the Great Khali.
Now, according to F4WOnline.com, the WWE have confirmed that Khali, real name Dalip Singh Rana, has officially been released by the company that made him a star.
From F4W's website:
"WWE sources have confirmed that Dalip Singh Rana, the Great Khali, is no longer with the company.'"
Khali's contract expired this past week and the company opted not to renew it. As noted yesterday, this was not a surprise and there had been talk around wrestling for the past week or so that Khali was being let go."
Khali was the World Heavyweight Champion at one time, and even had a successful feud with The Undertaker when he originally entered the WWE in 2006. But ever since then Khali hasn't been used in any real feuds, finding himself as more of a comedy wrestler and someone used to make up and comers look good.
Khali really suffered from a lack of mobility and any real in-ring ability. All his offense really consisted of was slaps to the chest and chops to the head. Despite his immense 7ft1 frame being what got him into the WWE, it ultimately held him back from progressing any further than after his debut.
So, WWE fans what do you think? Will Khali be missed in the WWE, or are you glad to see the back of him? Tell us in the comments below...
