7-foot-3 Omos wows fans on impressive WWE debut as he wins Tag Team titles with AJ Styles at WrestleMania 37
When WWE signed the legitimate 7-foot-3 Jordan Omogbehin, hopes were naturally high.
Names like Andre the Giant, The Undertaker and The Big Show are some of the greatest big men to ever grace professional wrestling.
But Omos is one of the legit biggest. Sometimes WWE exaggerates heights, but absolutely no need with the Nigerian-born star.
Omos made his in-ring debut for WWE on night one of WrestleMania 37 this weekend as he tagged with AJ Styles to challenge New Day for the Tag Team championships.
AJ Styles, one of the greatest in-ring performers of his generation, was a smart choice to put with the still-novice Omos and Styles would work the majority of the match.
The first half of the contest saw Styles isolated by New Day and the main narrative was preventing Styles from tagging in the gargantuan Omos.
Eventually, when Xavier Woods went to the top rope, it gave Styles just enough time to scurry across the ring and tag in the NXT export.
Omos proceeded to decimate arguably one of the best tag teams of their generation. He was impervious to pain and chopped down the New Day with ease.
He landed a couple of nasty backbreakers on each man before helping Styles land a Phenomenal Foreman from his huge shoulders.
A two-handed chokeslam was the end for Kofi Kingston and Omos collected the 1-2-3, earning a WWE championship in his debut match.
At the same time, Styles became the first-ever grand-slam champion in both WWE and TNA/IMPACT.
