Having reached the end of its usefulness in World Wrestling Entertainment, the now-obsolete Great Khali has been sold to a scrapyard to be permanently decommissioned.
The seven-foot-tall humanoid robot — which was eerily human in some ways, but very obviously an automaton in most other ways — entertained millions of fans with its wobbly style of “wrestling” in WWE.
Known for its pelican-like jaw, its herky-jerky gait, and its incomprehensible utterances, The Great Khali provided much-needed comic relief in the otherwise very serious world of sports entertainment.
But the colossal sideshow attraction was clearly not built to last more than a few years, as evidenced by its increasing mechanical glitches of late.
Its warranty now expired, the enormous android will be sent to a Detroit scrapyard, where it will be dismantled and auctioned off in pieces — the same fate met by the enormous Punjabi Prison structure.
Asked if it had any final words before being turned off forever, the Great Khali merely responded “Gruawhgh.”
