It was reported here on Thursday that former World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali was due to make a return to WWE.
The original report came from Indian website IAmIn.In, which stated that Khali’s contract with the sports-entertainment organization had been renewed and that he was returning to the United States on Apr. 8.
There were even direct quotes from Khali himself, confirming the news:
“It’s not that I had no offers from the WWE. I had voluntarily taken this break as I needed some time to establish the institute in Jalandhar. Now that the things are on track I decided to get back to the ring. I will be back soon with some more friends from US who will help me on my project to prepare WWE wrestling in India. We have trainees from all across the country. Also there are four girls apart from 30 boys who are being trained there. I wanted that girls get equal opportunity and so we have provided space for girls as well.”
The Wrestling Observer received a comment from a WWE spokesperson on the article, and their response was short and to the point:
“Khali is not returning to WWE.”
