WTF. That was the explicit acronym that I am sure popped into every wrestling fan's head after The Great Khali won the Biggest Blockbuster of the Summer Battle Royal to earn a WWE title shot at Summerslam next month.
Yes, it was Khali, not Umaga, Mr. Kennedy, Big Show, Montel Vontavious Porter, or the ever so popular, Jeff Hardy. The Great Khali's win and title shot may not be very popular with fans, but I can't blame them.
After all, Khali is not exactly the Dean Malenko of the squared circle. Triple vs. The Great Khali can make or break Smackdown's crowded main event/upper midcard right now.
On one hand, Triple H winning at Summerslam would be a nice win, but extremely predictable. The Game has not exactly been booked as a human being the last few months, but rather more like The Terminator with a lot more charisma.
A win over Triple H would reestablish Khali as an unstoppable monster that can, at times, be fun to watch. Not only that, but I do not think WWE should pull the trigger on another Jeff Hardy vs. Triple H just yet.
That could set up a huge feud between the two, with The Game stating Hardy could never beat the real world champion (even though he did last year at Armageddon). Triple H could also state that he was robbed by Khali and Ranjin Singh. That could lead to a blow off match with Khali en route to the money match with the Charismatic Enigma.
I am not trying to say The Great Khali would be the best World Champion, but he would certainly be believable and make Triple H look human for the first time in awhile.
Furthermore, Khali would be a serviceable transitional champion to drop the belt to Jeff Hardy or even the underrated Big Show. That way Triple H's only major loss on Smackdown! would be from a behemoth with the help of his manager. This would allow him to retain his heat.
In the long run, a Khali title win could help Smackdown! more than hurt the brand. I love Triple H, but going through heels like toilet paper is not the only way he should be booked. He needs a serious threat and if booked correctly, The Great Khali could be just that.
The Great Khali may never be the great WWE Champion, but with size, strength, and a serious streak, he would certainly be the right guy to help transition the belt to Jeff Hardy or another superstar not named Triple H.
