The Undertaker will forever be remembered as one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He gave more than three decades of his life to the business and The Undertaker’s contributions will never be forgotten.

While being touted as Vince McMahon’s greatest creation, the Deadman has never shied away from putting WWE Superstars over when needed. This included the likes of The Great Khali, who had a very impactful debut in WWE against The Undertaker.

While speaking to Rewind Recap Relive, The Great Khali recalled the bizarre advice Vince McMahon gave him. McMahon apparently told Khali to go and ‘kill The Undertaker hard.’

“Vince said, ‘I want to debut you’ but he didn’t say who is my opponent. He gives me a call and says, ‘come to TV after WrestleMania.’ Same day, Michael Hayes said, ‘You have a big day. You need to go out during Mark Henry and fighting and you need to ‘Kill The Undertaker.’ I was so happy. He tried to explain and Vince said, ‘Yes! Kill him hard! Not easy.’ That moment was really great. All the world knew who was Great Khali. I want to thank Vince McMahon and WWE for making Great Khali. I appreciate Vince McMahon and WWE.”


Khali’s debut on the WWE Smackdown after WrestleMania 22 remains one of the most memorable debuts in the company’s history as he decimated The Undertaker. Khali went on to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame and is now a part of the company’s history.
