The Great Khali and Hornswoggle are the top of what WWE has to offer right now, or perhaps the top of professional wrestling of all time is a better way to put it. Together with the (a little less skilled) diva Natalya, they form the most dangerous stable in professional wrestling today. Both members of the world-wide infamous tag team have numerous singles titles to their names, including world championships and cruiserweight titles. They write off the personal hatred the IWC seems to have developed towards them as envy to their huge amount of succes and their unprecedented popularity amongst other classes of society, that have been deemed important enough by the WWE to make their opinions count. Meanwhile, the Punjabi Playboy and his friend Little Bastard continue to squash their opponents with a speed and ease that the WWE universe has never gotten to witness before.
As WWE.com puts it very nicely:
Everyone looks up to The Great Khali – whether you want to or not.
That’s because the 7-foot-1, 347-pound skyscraper of a WWE Superstar can’t help but tower over all of the WWE Universe. Khali stands out from every crowd not only for his overwhelming size, but also for being the first to blaze a trail to WWE from his native India. His formative years may incline The Punjabi Giant toward some good-humored fun like dancing up a storm or courting a lucky lady for the “Kiss Cam,” but Khali frequently calls upon his Rajput heritage to become a proud warrior in the ring.
Khali’s battle-ready mentality and intimidating presence combine to make him a unique threat to every member of the WWE roster. He has successfully stood tall against celebrated WWE Superstars including The Undertaker, Kane, Big Show, John Cena, and Jinder Mahal. And he was the last man standing in a 20-Man Battle Royal on SmackDown in 2007 that allowed Khali to realize his dream of becoming World Heavyweight Champion.
Success in the WWE ring has lead to notoriety away from it for Khali, whose sizable achievements have made him a national hero in India. He frequently appears on screens of all sizes from Bollywood to Hollywood, which includes prominent acting roles in the feature films “The Longest Yard” (2005), “Get Smart” (2008), and “MacGruber” (2010), in addition to guest star appearances on the NBC series “Outsourced” and the Disney Channel series, “Pair of Kings.”
Looming large, the gargantuan Khali has nevertheless struck up a kinship with the diminutive Hornswoggle and has even ensnared the affections of Hart Dungeon beauty Natalya. Will Khali and Natalya become WWE’s most impactful power couple in 2013?
Hornswoggle, on the other hand, would be best described like this
Although he’s half the size of every other Superstar on the roster, it could be easily argued that Hornswoggle has, at times, displayed twice the intensity of his fellow ring warriors.
Debuting in 2006, Hornswoggle was first seen as a cackling fiend who would caper out from under the ring to wreak havoc on the opponents of fellow countryman Fit Finlay. His madcap antics soon earned him an unprintable nickname from Michael Cole, one that stuck with him until his real name was revealed the following year.
Shortly after the disclosure of Hornswoggle’s name, the little man shocked the world when he defeated Jamie Noble for the Cruiserweight Championship. The title’s retirement in September 2007 meant that Hornswoggle is the last Superstar ever to reign as Cruiserweight Champ.
In the wake of Hornswoggle’s upset title victory, an even more shocking discovery was uncovered. The tiny leprechaun was actually the illegitimate son of Mr. McMahon! The Chairman, revolted by the revelation, began putting his progeny up against tougher and larger competitors, as a means of showing “tough love.” In spite of being obviously outmatched, Hornswoggle rose to the occasion taking the punishment and coming back for more. Luckily, he often had help in his corner, in the form of Finlay and, on one occasion, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan.
In a short time, Hornswoggle has locked horns with Superstars such as Chavo Guerrero and The Miz, briefly joined D-Generation X, and was revealed to be the anonymous Raw General Manager. Not bad for a guy who could grow a beard before he was able to form a coherent sentence.
Now that he can finally speak, who knows what he’ll do or say next? The pint-sized grappler with a penchant for mischief has made the WWE Universe think green (in the unconventional way) for years through both his antics and in-ring action. As WWE fans and Superstars have come to realize, somewhere, deep underneath the squared circle, Hornswoggle is plotting.
Recently, 'Swoggle has found himself in the company of a giant, as he and The Great Khali have been making waves as one of WWE's oddest tag teams.
I think this makes perfectly clear why the Great Khali and Hornswoggle are the best wrestlers in the world.
Khali handed Fandango's ass to him in that dancing contest last night. Not only is Khali a great wrestler who deserves to get back into the main event scene, hes also a better dancer than Fandango, who is a fully-fledged ballroom dancer.
Hey, what are your views from your match on monday against fandango?
I dont become fans of many people here on b/r but youre a refreshing change from all the other superstar accounts.
