#ThrowbackThursday: The Great Khali's Greatest Hits

On this day, August 27th, over four decades ago, a great man was born. He would touch lives, bringing joy to the people whose lives would intersect with his. He came to America, where he became a huge pop culture phenomenon and a recognized television star, establishing his name and reputation as a shining light of hope and inspiration in his field.

That man was the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan.

But hey, it's the Great Khali's birthday too! He was aight, we guess.

And a great dancer too!

We can't throw him a real Punjabi Party, but in honor of our favorite Indian wrestler standing at least seven feet tall, and the only man from the great continent to wear World Championship gold in the WWE, we've assembled a quick rundown of some of his greatest hits.

Remember that time he won a 20-man battle royal to become World Heavyweight Champion?

Or that time he squashed the Undertaker in ways Brock Lesnar could only dream of doing?

Or that time he demolished then-reigning World Champion Rey Mysterio like Smark Henry staffers at the tempura buffet in Saisaki?

What a guy, that Khali.

He sucked, but hey, it's his birthday so we'll be kind. Happy birthday, big guy. We're glad you retired.
