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.

Since he is still a well known and beloved figure in India, the majority of the country believed the Great Khali when he told the mainstream media there that he was going to be making his return to WWE soon. However, the former world heavyweight champion has softened up on that stance quite a bit in a new interview. He stated that he was really busy with his own wrestling school. He also revealed that he would not be at the next Wrestlemania.

A lot of the older wrestlers on the independent wrestling circuit like to tell fans that they are returning to WWE soon. Apparently, the Great Khali is one of those guys.

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.

Earlier in the year, it was reported that the Great Khali has been telling the mainstream media in India that he was returning to WWE soon. It is now being said that he has left his home country for the United States. While there is some skepticism about his intentions, the belief is that the company would welcome him back with open arms because of his value as a marketing asset. He would have to take a considerable pay cut, however.

Believe it or not, there is a good amount of people online who search for naked photos of the Great Khali. Some of the searchers are curious people in the United States. The majority of these people, however, are from his home country of India, where he is revered as a huge star. His popularity over there was the reason why WWE paid him such a high salary for all those years. Fortunately for us all, none of these images exists.

Based on search engine reports, there is a disturbing amount of people that actually try to see if there is a Great Khali sex tape floating around somewhere on the internet. The former world heavyweight champion, who is rumored to be making a return to WWE soon, may have one in his personal life, but there are none online. Considering his popularity in India, the existence of a sex tape would become one of the bigger news stories overseas.

Previously, it was reported that the Great Khali was interested in opening up a wrestling school in India. Apparently, he has already accomplished that. The former World Heavyweight Champion revealed to the media that the academy is already up and running. Khali already has some students working out at his facility. The 42 year old also mentioned that WWE wanted him to send them three performers a year for NXT tryouts.

According to the Great Khali himself, a return to WWE is in the works. He told the media in India that he has been working hard on recovering from surgery to his right leg. He states that he is now healthy enough to get back in the ring. Some believe that he might just be working the public, though, as he stated that he will some day make a return at Wrestlemania and defeat the Undertaker at the pay per view, which is highly unlikely.
