WWE: The Great Khali could be set to make a return

Just months after being released by the WWE, The Great Khali could be set to make a return to the ring.

In an interview with IAmIn.in, the former World Heavyweight Champion said he is headed back to the United States after time in his native country developing a wrestling institution in Jalandhar, Punjab.

The article also stated that Khali hasn't been in a WWE ring in two years, although it's actually only been six months, which is why we seem rather sceptical about the source material.

"It's not that I had no offers from the WWE. I had voluntarily taken this break as I needed some time to establish the institute in Jalandhar. Now that the things are on track I decided to get back to the ring," Khali said.

Khali went on to add that he would be back to his wrestling institute soon which seems to cloud whether or not he is going back to the States as an in-ring performer or as more of an ambassador. The piece does however say that Khali signed a new deal with the company.

Bringing Khali back as an ambassador or a talent scout for one of the largest countries in the world makes a lot more sense than bringing him back as a comedy jobber.

Khali could barely move around the ring when he was in his prime, never mind now after multiple surgeries and an extended break from training and practice. 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 after his debut, despite holding the heavyweight title at one point.

There's been no official word from the WWE yet, and Khali is still in the 'Alumni' section of their superstars rather than as an active wrestler, so this should all just be treated as speculation for the time being.
