A PROFESSIONAL WWE wrestler has left the glitzy world of Hollywood behind to train the next generation of India's wrestling superstars. The 7ft 1in giant, known as the Great Khali, has returned to his roots by setting up a wrestling academy in a small village in Kaganiwal, India. Born Dalip Singh, the 42-year-old left India in 2000 for stints in the US, Japan and Mexico. But his big break came in 2006, when he became the first Indian pro wrestler to sign a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) - becoming the world heavyweight champion the following year.
