Omos quickly established himself as a formidable opponent for anyone in a WWE ring. Presently, he is poised to have a breakthrough match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39. That being said, it seems The Undertaker is also very high on Omos.
After winning the RAW Tag Team Championship with AJ Styles at WrestleMania 37, Omos went on to engage in feuds with Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman. However, his upcoming match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39 has caused a lot of controversy.
According to an exclusive report by Ringside News, Omos was not even WWE’s first backup option for Lesnar’s opponent after Steve Austin’s cancellation. Regardless, the match is happening and fans are not happy about it one bit.
While speaking with Alex McCarthy of Sportsmail, The Undertaker talked about Omos’ current status in WWE. According to The Undertaker, he holds Omos in high regard and believes he has great potential as a talent. The Undertaker also praised Omos for being a great human being who is eager to improve and learn. Despite currently playing a villainous character, The Undertaker described Omos as a nice person who possesses all the qualities he looks for in someone he would want to mentor.
However, The Undertaker acknowledged that it is challenging to book Omos in a way that properly showcases his skills and appeal, noting that he is more of an attraction than a regular weekly TV performer and needs to be presented in a special way.
I’m really high on Omos. He’s still developing that talent and my gosh what a great human being he is. Actually, I’m killing him off cause he’s a bad guy right now, but he is a really nice human being and he is a sponge, he wants to get better He wants to do all of the things that I look for when I see somebody that I really want to mentor, but it’s difficult because its just so hard to book him in a way that he should be booked. He is an attraction, he’s not an every week tv kind of guy, he needs to be special
Omos is also getting married this year, so he has that to look forward to. It remains to be seen how the Nigerian giant will fare against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39, in what will be his biggest match yet.
