World Wrestling Entertainment have gotten something new on their sleeves as they finally promote one of the young talents to the main roaster.
Lagos born superstar Jordan Omogbehin is now on Monday night RAW as the Big Ninja as he was able to make his way to the ring in the company of NXT Japanese wrestler Akira Tozawa.
This latest episode of WWE Monday Night Raw featured the return of The Big Show but not with the spice of the Jordan Omogbehin who joins fellow Nigerian, Apollo Crews on the red brand.
Big Show who is definitely the longest serving big man in WWE history returned after The Viking Raiders and The Street Profits defeated Akira Tozawa’s ninjas.
Prior to Backlash, Jordan Omogbehin had made appearances at NXT live events but he had never been involved in a storyline on WWE programming.
Big Show took out most of the ninjas but the giant ninja that also appeared at Backlash was untouched.
It’s unclear where they are going with the ninjas but it looks like we might see some interaction between Big Show and the giant ninja in the future.
Omogbehin signed with WWE in October 2018 but has not appeared on any WWE programming. The 7-footer, who played college basketball at Morgan State and USF, appeared at NXT live events last summer but never made an official debut.
It’s possible that Omogbehin’s appearance was just a one-off, but sword-wielding ninja certainly would be one interesting way to debut WWE’s next dominant 7-footer.
The introduction of the 26-year-old giant is similar to when the company introduced current WWE Champion Braun Strowman, the monster amongst Men saw little action in the ring in NXT on TV but came up with the Wyatt Family.
He did little but stand around and work as muscle and is now the WWE Universal Champion years later. As big as Strowman is, however, at 6’8″, he is dwarfed by Omogbehin.
