As seen on WWE TV last week, former World Champions The Great Khali and Chris Jericho made their returns. Khali returned at WWE Battleground to assist Jinder Mahal, and Chris Jericho returned on Smackdown Live and lost a main event title match.

According to, neither The Great Khali nor Chris Jericho are being advertised for any WWE events going forward, including televised and non-televised events.

With regards to Khali, his status remains unclear, however WWE is still in the process of trying to build up Jinder Mahal in order to increase business in India, so Khali could be used in that capacity as he is a huge star in India.
