While working the main event of a show for his own promotion, the Great Khali was severely injured. The former world heavyweight champion suffered a head injury to his head that was serious enough that he needed to be stretchered out of the arena. While at the hospital, the former WWE star received several stitches in the intensive care unit. Doctors have fixed him up to the point where he is no longer in any serious threat of danger.

Since the company no longer has the expensive services of the Great Khali, they are forced to find other wrestlers to send to India to promote. The latest person to be sent to that country is Mark Henry, and he is on his way there this week. His promotional duties aren't for an upcoming tour, however. He is simply there to bring a little more awareness for WWE since they are televised there.

For the next phase of their expansion plans, WWE is set to debut the Network in several countries. One of the more interesting choices is India, as many industry insiders feel that it is one of the hotter markets for professional wrestling. While much of their population lives in poverty, there is a good amount of wealthy people that may be willing to spend on the service. Great Khali could be brought back solely to promote the online service.
