The New WWE Heavyweight Champ is....

Not one to say "I told you so," you could see this one coming a mile away, as on Tuesday night in Laredo, Texas, the Great Khali was crowned as the WWE Heavyweight Champion. We reported earlier today that Edge would be dropping the title due to a pec injury, and that the company would be having a battle royale that would decide the new champ. Well, that champ has arrived, and in one of the oddest moments that the industry has ever seen - he is the Great Khali. I am also already ready to go on record and say that Khali will be putting the belt up Sunday in a triple-threat at the Great American Bash, as he will take on both Batista and Kane. The orignal plan was for Edge to take on Kane for the strap, and Batista and Khali to go one-on-one. Edge becomes the third champion in just over a year and a half to have to give up the belt due to injury. Batista gave up the belt with an injury in December of 2005, and that was won by Kurt Angle. Undertaker got pinned by Edge, but of course he really had to drop the belt due to an injury after holding it for just over two months.
