Jim Ross Says Former World Champion Did Not Deserve To Win Against Kane At Wrestlemania


Throughout his active career, Kane has been one of the most dependable WWE Superstars. He helped many others start their careers despite being a monster himself. Jim Ross, however, thinks that his match at WrestleMania 23 versus The Great Khali was terrible.

There was no way Kane could have improved the game, according to Ross. He was aware of what to expect and that, despite his best attempts, Khali would ruin the match. Even though the match lasted only five minutes, it was a huge failure.

Ross stated on Grilling JR that the bodyslam between Hulk Hogan and André the Giant was the match’s intended outcome. The spectators, however, had no interest in the game. He lauded The Big Red Monster and claimed that he was deserving of being on the card:

“Kane deserved to be on the card, skill set wise, dues-paying wise. All those things. Khali not so much. He just wasn’t ready. Dalip wasn’t a bad guy. He was friendly. He was from a different country and trying to learn a different language. He was an attraction guy.”


The Great Khali got inducted into the Hall of Fame along with Kane
Ironically, the two men were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021.

The Big Red Monster headlined the event and was accompanied by The Great Khali, Eric Bischoff, Molly Holly, and Rob Van Dam.

While one-half of The Brothers of Destruction had a longer and more significant career in WWE than The Great Khali, both men are considered two of the most well-liked stars backstage. Even though their match at WrestleMania 23 didn’t get over, the two have left behind legacies as former WWE World Champions.
