The Great Khali yearns for revenge and that too a bloody one. The ex-WWE star from India, who was seriously injured in a professional wrestling bout with Canada’s ‘Bodysteel’ on Wednesday, said he is ready for a rematch and promised to show no mercy.
“I have come out of bad time. I am ready to fight him (Bodysteel). I will attack him with chair and make every drop of his blood count. It will be blood for blood and chair for chair.” said Khali, who had to be admitted in a hospital in Dehradun with a head fracture.
The rematch with his Canadian rival will come soon enough for Khali. “There is a fire burning inside me and I am embarrassed that I let my fans down in Haldwani. But I request you all to come on 28th in Dehradun and watch me give it back to them. I will fight despite what the doctors say and promise to take revenge,” Khali said.
The 44-year-old Khali suffered a serious head fracture while fighting Canadian wrestler ‘Bodysteel’ and was taken to Dehradun on Thursday for specialised treatment.
During his fight with ‘Bodysteel’ in ‘The Great Khali Wrestling Show’ at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Khali was left stranded alone when two other wrestlers — Mike Knox and Apollo — entered the ring and started beating the Indian with chairs.
The Indian star could not fight back and was left bleeding in the ring. He was stretchered away and was taken to Birajlal Trauma Centre in Haldwani, where CT scan and X-Rays revealed there was a fracture in his head.
Khali was a Punjab state police officer before becoming a professional wrestler. He won his first WWE heavyweight championship in July 2007.
