The former WWE Indian wrestler Dalip Singh Rana who goes by the alias of "Great Khali" has warned Sushil saying that it would be really difficult for him to make a mark in American wrestling.

Khali has taken initiative in coming up with a chain of gymnasiums in order to promote health and fitness all across the country."There is not much awareness about fitness in India, unlike other countries. We don't get too many medals at Olympics, one of the reasons is we don't have that culture of fitness in India. That is why we decided to start this chain of gyms under my name," said Khali.

Khali who wants his fellow countrymen to join WWE, has stressed that his success might be restricted due to age."It will be good if Sushil goes to WWE. One has to join at an early age for the chances of success to increase. It's my thought. There is nothing personal about it but I think it is a bit late for Sushil to join WWE. WWE is very difficult. I would personally like to see someone in WWE after me," Khali told India Today.The former WWE star would be thrilled to see the 33-year old Olympian in the ring but believes success for anyone in WWE would be an onerous task.
