‘The Great Khali’, who was admitted in a hospital four days ago after sustaining “serious” head injuries, bounced back in style to beat three foreigners in Dehradun.

Khali, 43, trounced three foreign wrestlers — Brody Steel, Mike Knox and Apollo Leon — on Sunday night during the second show of ‘The Great Khali Returns Series’.

The fight had to be stopped mid way after his opponents — Mike Knox and Brody Steel — beat up Khali with chairs.

Khali received seven stitches on his head before being flown to the Uttarakhand capital, where he was kept under observation in the ICU and underwent many tests to know the severity and exact nature of his injuries.

After the tests, he was discharged from the hospital, although the doctors had advised him against fighting on Sunday.

But he still took the ring, vowing to take revenge and he fulfilled his promise in front of his home crowd last night.
