WWE was once referred to as “The Land of Giants,” where big and tall wrestlers took over the company. While that has been scaled back in recent years, there are still tall and dominant figures within the company. 

One star in particular, Omos, is reigning terror across WWE. The 28-year-old from Lagos, Nigeria has cast a large shadow within WWE’s ring. Still new to pro wrestling, Omos has managed to impress in each match he competes in. 

Omos faces Braun Strowman in a “Battle of the Giants” at WWE’s Crown Jewel event on November 5. Taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Omos is ready to make an impact at the international level.

Who is Omos? 

Omos (real name Tolulope Omogbehin) played basketball for the University of South Florida and Morgan State University. In 2019, WWE signed Omogbehin to train at its Performance Center.

He made his TV debut in 2020 as a member of Akira Tozawa’s faction. That was short-lived, and he really made himself known as a doorman and bouncer for RAW Underground, a “Fight Club-like” atmosphere hosted by Shane McMahon.

Once RAW Underground ended, Omos teamed with A.J. Styles, helping him win matches while also destroying Styles’ opponents. Omos made his televised in-ring debut at WrestleMania 37. Omos and Styles beat Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods at the event to win the WWE RAW Tag Team Titles. They lost the titles at SummerSlam 2021 and would attempt to win them back for several months. 

In November 2021, Omos won a battle royal that honored The Rock’s 1996 WWE debut. Omos later feuded with Styles, beating him in January 2022. Following a stretch where he was unbeaten, Omos lost his first singles match against Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 38. They would compete in a rematch this past May at WrestleMania Backlash, where Omos won. He was assisted by Lashley’s former friend MVP, who aligned himself with Omos. 

Over the past few months Omos continued his feud with Lashley and later competed in the Money in the Bank ladder match. Omos recently started a feud with the returning Braun Strowman, who was released in June 2021. Their first match against one another takes place at the Crown Jewel event.
