    I second that. Is this a joke?

  3. Luke says:

    He should headline. No one will be able to follow that speech…

  4. Kyle Williamson says:

    The Great Khali didnt have a Hall of Fame Career, all hes really known for is killing that guy one time

    Seriously? o.O

  6. Smitty says:

    Probably a PR move to get more headlines in India.

  7. Hans Maulwurf says:

    Well if the Bella ring rats are allowed in the HoF, or people like Koko who basically achieved nothing while Khali was at least World Heavyweight Champion…

    Ok, even I can’t see anything good in this. The WWE HoF is a joke and will forever be a joke.

  8. John says:

    Meh it’s a business move to please Indians

  9. Drew says:

    Well, he ceartinly had a memorable career.
    Not saying whether it was good or bad…

  10. Joseph says:

    I forgot the WWE Hall of Fame was a popularity contest. I assumed it was about people who contributed something to the WWE and wrestling.

  11. What? says:

    Are you kidding? He deserves to be in solely for being the pioneer of the wildly entertaining and enduringly popular Punjabi Prison Match, to say nothing ofOK, I can’t keep a straight face while typing that. Yeah, it’s another shameless play for the Indian market, nothing more.

  12. Cody’s Awful Neck Tat says:

    He is technically a legend in India….they edited his matches to make it look like he was champ longer than he was. I get him being HOF in that context but yeah…..we’re getting to the point where it’s laughable even as a bad / laughable HOF.

    Hell, you got guys in there who later come
    Out and win events / titles? It’s a mess.
