He was raised with his six siblings in a Punjabi Hindu Rajput family, by his father Jwala Ram and mother Tandi Devi. Since his family was poor, he had to do various odd jobs to earn enough money for them. He was diagnosed with acromegaly, that affects gigantism and chin protrusion. While he was serving as a security guard, he was spotted by a police officer who previously helped several Punjab Police employees to become international sportspersons.
He joined them in 1993, and spent some time serving as an Assistant Sub-Inspector. At the time, he started training in local gyms to become a professional wrestler, and was soon chosen to complete specialized wrestling training in the US.
Professional Wrestling Career
Dalip’s professional career officially began when he made his debut as a member of All Pro Wrestling (APW) in 2000, using the ring name Giant Singh. The following year, he relocated to San Francisco, California to sign a contract with World Championship Wrestling (WCW). He competed there for eight months until WCW was purchased by World Wrestling Federation (WWE).
Thereafter, he transferred to Japan, and signed a contract with New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) for which he competed from 2001 to 2002.
