Omos is one of the young prospects currently serving in WWE. During his short career, the Nigerian wrestler already held the Raw Tag Team Championship with the legendary AJ Styles (their reign lasted 133 days). On April 3, on the second night of WrestleMania 38, he was defeated by Bobby Lashley and suffered his first pinfall KO.
The two met again on May 8 at WrestleMania Backlash, with Omos having the better of 'The All Mighty' thanks also to the fundamental help of MVP. Last Sunday, at Hell in a Cell, MVP and Omos were beaten by Lashley in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.
In the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo said that Omos will never become a pillar of the company.
Vince Russo slams Omos
“I don't want to sound cruel, but I think Omos doesn't have what it takes to become a WWE symbol.
He will never reach the top of the company” - said Vince Russo. “This is not necessarily bad, everyone has their own role. Omos is a giant that scares people, but it is not enough to become a champion. His character allows WWE to make money and he's fine with that.
Both sides are happy” - he added. Vince also talked about Alexa Bliss: “I think he would do well to leave WWE. She has talent out of the ordinary, and she doesn't deserve to be wasted in this way. Vince McMahon's company has never managed to enhance his character, on the contrary, it has done everything to destroy him.
Thanks also to the contacts of her husband Ryan Cabrera, Alexa would have no problem entering the world of cinema. Her situation reminds me very much of Charly Arnolt's. I advised her to leave WWE because she had nothing to gain.
She now works as a host for ESPN and things are much better. Alexa Bliss should take inspiration from her." Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling's Legion Of RAW, Russo criticized Omos and MVP's current booking. The veteran writer seemed confused that WWE creative was now pitting the Nigerian giant against the Dirty Dawgs: "Omos and MVP against the Dirty Dawgs, this is gonna be the big one.
Can they stop with Omos already? So everything we've done, now he's in a tag team with MVP against the Dirty Dawgs. The only thing they have left to do is have him turn on MVP and get him over to babyface. What else can they do? What are they gonna do bro? What else are they gonna do to this guy at this point? I don't know why would they put him together in a team. Bro, it's all house show stuff. If this were a house show you went to, we're fine."
