The Great Khali Reportedly Returning To Action, Edge Discusses Acting Transition

– The Great Khali is tentatively scheduled to return to WWE’s squared circle in approximately a month.

In late July, Khali, whose real name is Dalip Singh, underwent surgery to remove a pituitary gland tumor that’s the cause of his tremendous size. The tumor was discovered through WWE’s Talent Wellness Program, according to a report by ABC News. It was noted that he would be healthy enough to return to the ring within months.

– Promoting the third season of Haven on Syfy, former WWE talent Adam “Edge” Copeland discussed making the transition from professional wrestling to acting during an interview with SciFiAndTvTalk.

“Once I became a wrestler and then as the years progressed I came to the realization that, well, I’ve done everything there is to do in wrestling, and now I can’t get cleared physically to do it any more, so what can I do? Anytime I’d done any acting I really enjoyed it, and it’s something creative,” Copeland said. “No matter what it is, I have to do something creative. That’s just the way I’m wired. I don’t do well in offices, so I need be doing something, whether it’s writing a book, painting, drawing, the theatrics of the WWE or acting, I need this. So I guess it [acting] is somewhat of a natural extension of the wrestling, but it was a happy accident, for sure.”

Copeland also discussed the evolution of his Edge character, coping with WWE’s strenuous travel schedule, his character’s role on Haven, and more. The full interview is available here.

    I’m not excited, but I’m happy he’s back. He looks like a nice guy, and sometimes he’s funny…

  • Ridiculu

    I am excited to see Khali return, he may not be the best wrestler but he is entertaining. So your point is?

  • Hank Moody

    I’m glad Khali got rid of his tumor and hopefully he can stay healthy. I’m not excited to see him return to the ring, obviously, but WWE knows Khali’s role. He’s gonna be doing little, insignificant segments, squash matches against jobbers, maybe job to a few up and comers, etc. He’s not gonna be challenging a champion or anything, his appearances will be piss breaks, so it’s not a big deal.

    Khali should just go to TNA and be a part of Aces and 8’s. Nobody would ever know it’s him.

  • DiamondSkye

    The Great Khali returning. I know everyone is as excited as can be.

  • Jimbo

    All joking aside, I’m glad he’s OK.
