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.
