In an interview with Indian Express, The Great Khali spoke about working with John Cena and getting painkillers from Randy Orton. Here are highlights:
On working with John Cena and Vince McMahon’s reaction: “A good match is about the chemistry between opponents. I loved working with Cena. He was always receptive to my ideas, even if they weren’t good. Because he was ready to try things, we delivered a great match. When we got backstage, McMahon hugged me and said I had put on a great show.”
On receiving painkillers from Randy Orton early in his career to help with knee pain: “The pills were so strong that I couldn’t feel my legs. My foot kept slipping and I fell.”
On not needing to run his wrestling school that’s losing money: “But I want to. I still want to keep some connection with this industry. This was something I was born to do. I was always meant to be Khali. I dream of wrestling all the time. And then I get up and I realize that I am not wrestling anymore. But I still keep my pants with me — both in India and in Houston. You never know.”
