Dave Kapoor aka Ranjin Singh, who is Khali’s translator and really does speak Hindi and Punjab, doesn’t want to work a full road schedule and so they’re looking for a new handler for Khali. Khali needs help with a lot of everyday stuff. Referee Marty Elias on Raw used to travel with him all the time so he may end up moving to Smackdown. Kapoor will remain on television as Khali’s translator though.
WWE has plans to put up a subscription-based website, probably in 2008. The specifics of the website haven’t been released, but it’ll probably feature exclusive pictures, videos, multimedia, etc. There’s definitely something to it because they’ve opened up a new office twenty miles north of Stamford, CT to focus on it. They are preparing to do a lot of hiring’s for the website in the next few months, so there are big plans.
As noted before here on the site, names being discussed for induction into the WWE Hall of Fame next year include the Von Erichs, Ted DiBiase, Mae Young, Gordon Solie, Rick Rude, and for the celebrity wing, Bob Uecker. Also, they really want Ric Flair, which has been the plan for a long time now, but both sides are currently on the outs.
