Punjabi Prison


I'm watching No Mercy 2007 on the network and am astonished by the idea of the "Punjabi Prison" match. Did WWE really have such high hopes for Great Khali that they created an entire trademark match for him? And, if that was the case, why the hell did they create a match like that? Building the cage must have been expensive, but there's also the fact that it works against any of Khali's "strengths" because he's not really capable of making a quick escape from it. Plus, you can't SEE through it! I've never seen a gimmick match that looks worse on television. Was there some backstage explanation for the idea?

​They just really, REALLY, loved Great Khali and thought they had big money in him.  You see, he's even bigger than the Big Show!  How could they lose?  ​
