New Delhi: Former WWE superstar got his revenge in Dehradun on Sunday after he beat Brody Steel at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Returning from a head injury sustained at the hands of the Canadian in Haldwani four days back, Khali knocked him down in style even as loud cheers greeted him from the audience.
Chief Minister Harish Rawat and Pradesh Congress President Kishore Upadhyay attended the event.
Organised by the Bharatiya Samajik Seva Sansthan, this was the first time that a wrestling event on the lines of WWE was held in Uttarakhand as part of the chief minister's youth outreach programme entitled 'CM4Youth'.
Earlier on Wednesday night, Khali had suffered head and chest injuries during the Continental Wrestling Entertainment show at Haldwani and was subsequently airlifted the next morning to a speciality hospital in Dehradun.
The fight had to be stopped mid way after his opponents, Mike Knox and Brody Steel, beat up Khali with chairs. Despite getting injured,
Khali has vowed to make a comeback in the second show of 'The Great Khali Returns Series' "It will be blood for blood and chair for chair," said Khali after being discharged from the hospital.
