The Great Khali comes in at number six and is another example of a Superstar having a lot of success extremely early in his career.
In 2006, Khali made his WWE debut by attacking The Undertaker during his match on an episode of SmackDown.
Khali's manager at the time, Daivari, had managed several other Superstars in the WWE, none of whom were able to beat The Undertaker.
Upon Khali's debut, Daivari said that he found a man who could finally beat The Undertaker.
At Judgement Day 2006, he made good on his word, as Khali defeated The Undertaker.
In 2007, after a brief stint in ECW, The Great Khali was a member of the Raw. On his Raw debut, he defeated John Cena by disqualification.
Khali and Kane began a short rivalry that culminated in a match at WrestleMania 23. Khali picked up the victory over Kane.
During the 2007 WWE Draft, Khali was drafted to SmackDown.
On the July 20 edition of SmackDown, The Great Khali won his very first World Heavyweight Championship.
Edge, who was the champion at the time, had to vacate the title due to an injury. Khali won a 20-Man Battle Royal in order to win the vacated championship.
At Unforgiven 2007 on September 16, Khali defended the WHC against Rey Mysterio and Batista in a Triple Threat Match. Batista got the victory.
From 2008-2012, The Great Khali was involved in many different storylines, but never came close to capturing a title.
Right now, he is used as comic relief alongside Hornswoggle and Natalya.
The Great Khali is 40 years old already and has won one title: the World Heavyweight Championship.
I don't see The Great Khali winning any more titles in the WWE. He is slow, uncoordinated, and very uncomfortable to watch.
I apologize for bashing Khali, but he isn't a good wrestler at this point in his career.
Good thing the WWE didn't have Khali beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania!
