A pro wrestling star is hospitalized, recovering from surgery.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

He makes a big entrance... (MUSIC) ...to that music. The Great Khali, who became a big WWE star in 2007:

(Announcer) "The new World Heavyweight Champion!"

But now he wants to cure what has made him so big. Dalip Singh, that's Khali's real name, had surgery Wednesday in Pittsburgh to remove a pituitary gland tumor that helped Singh grow to seven-foot-one. It causes the body to produce excessive growth hormone and can lead to cardiovascular problems. Another former star wrestler Andre The Giant also had it and died of congestive heart failure.
