Since he is such a beloved figure, WWE made sure to avoid talking about the Great Khali when they are promoting the two shows that they are going to be doing in India in January. The former world heavyweight champion is no longer associated with the company. Khali now has a business relationship with TNA. He recently helped promote the tour that they will be doing before the end of the year.

As some of you may already know, TNA is doing a tour of India. They made a very wise decision to partner up with the Great Khali, who is very much still revered in the country for his stint with WWE. The former world heavyweight champion has given his endorsement to the live events that will be taking place in December. He also has agreed to help the company find another local star to join Mahabali Shera on the roster.

There is said to be some interest from TNA in regards to signing the Great Khali to a contract. The company recently signed a massive television deal in India that will keep them on the air until the year 2022. A lot of that had to do with the fact that they now have Mahabali Shera on the roster. Since the network wants Dixie Carter to bring even more talent from their country on board, there is a chance that Khali could be used for his name value.

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.
