Reactions: 

Dalip Singh Rana (Hindi: दिलीप सिंह राणा; born 27 August 1972), known in professional wrestling by his ring name The Great Khali (महान खली), is an Indian professional Wrestler, actor, and former powerlifter. He won Mr. India title in 1995 and 1996. He is currently signed to WWE on its Smackdown brand. Before embarking on his professional wrestling career, he was a police officer in the Punjab state police.
In WWE, Singh is a one-time World Heavyweight Champion, and one-time Slammy Award winner. He has also appeared in three Hollywood films as well as two Bollywood films. His Height is 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m) & Weight is 420 lb (190 kg). and now Resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
 
Singh was born in Himachal Pradesh, India to Jwala Ram (father) and Tandi Devi (mother); and now Resides in Atlanta, Georgia. He is one of seven siblings. Although his parents are of normal stature, his grandfather was well over 6 ft 6 inches. Under the ring name Giant Singh, Dalip Singh first became a professional wrestler for All Pro Wrestling (APW) in the United States, making his first appearance in October 2000, when teaming with Tony Jones against the West Side Playaz.
 
On 2 January 2006, Singh became the first Indian professional wrestler to be signed to a contract by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE); he was assigned to their developmental federation, Deep South Wrestling, where he wrestled under his real name. With Daivari as his manager, the unnamed Singh debuted on WWE television on the 7 April 2006 episode of SmackDown!, attacking The Undertaker and leaving him defenceless during his match with Mark Henry, and thus causing a no-contest ruling. The next week he was introduced as The Great Khali. Daivari explained that he now finally had a client that would destroy The Undertaker (after Muhammed Hassan and Mark Henry had previously failed). Khali made his in-ring debut on the 21 April edition of SmackDown!, defeating Funaki.
 
On the 8 January episode of Raw, Jonathan Coachman announced that Khali had signed with Raw (without his manager Daivari), and would wrestle John Cena in the main event. Khali won by disqualification after Cena took a steel chair held by Armando Estrada and hit Khali with it. After the match, Khali chokeslammed Cena to the mat and left the ringside area, leaving Cena prone to an attack by Umaga.
 
On the 19 February edition of Raw, Khali demanded better competition after easily defeating The Highlanders. Four days later on SmackDown!, Khali interfered in a Falls Count Anywhere Money In The Bank qualifying match between Kane and King Booker. Khali cost Kane the match, leading to a feud which would culminate with a match at WrestleMania 23. In his first appearance at WrestleMania, Khali defeated Kane at WrestleMania 23 after slamming him with the Khali Bomb. Right after the match, Khali choked Kane with a hook and chain.
 
On 26 April, Khali was drafted to back to SmackDown as part of the 2011 Supplemental Draft. On the April 29 edition of SmackDown, Khali re-debuted on the brand backstage, talking to Jinder Mahal, who made his WWE debut that night. On the May 2 episode of Raw, Khali dressed up as the Tooth Fairy at The Rock's birthday party.
 
On the May 6 edition of SmackDown, Mahal, unimpressed by how Khali and Ranjin Singh have been partaking in childish activities instead of winning matches, confronted Singh about his mismanagement of Khali. Mahal then interrupted a Khali Kiss Cam segment the following week, slapping Khali twice. On the May 20 edition of SmackDown, Mahal interrupted Khali's match against Jey Uso, which lead to Khali leaving the ring to confront Mahal. Mahal would then slap Khali again, which made Khali re-enter the ring and defeat Jey Uso, and then assault Jimmy Uso after the match.
 
On the May 27 edition on SmackDown, after being defeated by Kane, Mahal would come out and shove Singh. Khali would look to save Singh from Mahal, but would instead attack Singh, turning heel in the process and forming an alliance with Mahal. Khali would then act as Mahal's bodyguard, assaulting Mahal's opponent's after his matches. On the July 1 edition of SmackDown, Singh would reveal that Mahal was their (kayfabe) brother-in-law.
