Omos quickly established himself as a formidable opponent for anyone in a WWE ring and he has some surprising supporters as well. His status as a living giant was put to the test at WrestleMania 39, where Omos squared off against Brock Lesnar. He lost to Brock Lesnar, but that doesn’t mean people don’t support him. In fact, some believe that he has more potential than Big Show and Andre The Giant.
Throughout his WrestleMania 39 match against Brock Lesnar, Omos was able to manhandle The Beast Incarnate and some even believed that he was going to defeat Lesnar. Of course, that did not happen in the end after Brock Lesnar delivered a thunderous F5 to Omos for the win.
Now Omos is currently feuding with Seth Rollins, which many fans believe is completely unnecessary and lacking in logic. That being said, WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg has a high opinion of the Nigerian Nightmare.
While speaking on the most recent Oh! You Didn’t Know episode, Road Dogg gave huge props to the former RAW Tag Team Champion. Dogg even stated that he believes Omos has more potential than Big Show and Andre The Giant.
“He has more upside, to me, in my mind, and I know times are different and things are different than Andre, than Big Show than all these guys. Big Show is a great athlete. To be as big as he was and drop-kicking and going to the top rope, Big Show is an incredible athlete. This guy is the same kind of athlete. He’s a really good athlete at that size. It’s really uncommon, and it’s really cool to see. He’s really huge. I didn’t look at Big Show like I look at this guy.’
Omos is set to square off against Seth Rollins at the WWE Backlash Premium Live Event next month. We exclusively reported that Seth Rollins isn’t being punished with this match. Regardless, we’ll have to see how Omos will fare in the match against The Visionary.
