While it is not as big of a priority as regaining the fan base in Mexico, WWE is said to be looking for someone to replace the Great Khali as the draw for fans in India. No words on what the numbers over there have looked like since the former world heavyweight champion was released, but management still views that market as a lucrative one. The potential from the market is a big reason why TNA recently signed Mahabali Shera.

Even before he was released by WWE, there were talks of the Great Khali opening up a wrestling school in India. Those talks are heating up again as of late. Media reports from that country are stating that the move is close to happening. The school is slated to be open in the city of Punjab. Since the region is still a valued demographic for promotions in the United States, there is a very good chance that someone will eventually be signed from there.
