The Great Khali’s run at the top really ended there. He faced Batista in a rematch for the title inside the Punjabi Prison match, which the Animal won. In hindsight, asking a man his size to climb up and down some bamboo was not a good decision, and especially stupid considering he invented the match type.
He went on to challenge Triple H for the WWE Championship at Summerslam the next year, losing to The Game’s pedigree in a poor match and costing him another chance at holding the WWE Championship, the bigges title in the company. This was the closest the big man would come to tasting gold again, not winning any more Championships in his career and not doing anything of note beside the infamous “Khali Kiss Cam”.
The Khali Kiss Cam was really stupid and pointless, but they were paying him a lot of money so he did what he was told. Khali, now a face dubbed “The Punjabi Playboy” came out and watched people in the crowd kiss. It wasn’t quite as voyeuristic as it sounds but I refuse to change it. It was pointless and never lead to anything yet I still remember it vividly to this day.
He never really had a proper feud and never did anything of note, and thus ends this section of the Great Khali’s career.
Also that time he sang a Christmas song (Watch it, it’s incredible)
