In a surprising twist, a 28-year-old free agent might be the sole remaining contender capable of dethroning Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Reigns emerged victorious in defending his title against Cody Rhodes in WrestleMania 39's main event.
The American Nightmare was in command when Solo Sikoa, The Bloodline's Enforcer, intervened with a Samoan Spike. Reigns then seized the opportunity to deliver a decisive Spear.
Omos: Reigns' Undisputed Challenger
SmackDown selected Reigns as their first pick during the WWE Draft, making the newly introduced World Heavyweight Championship exclusive to RAW.
Over the weekend, it was revealed that Omos, a 28-year-old free agent, was not picked during the draft's first night, enabling him to appear on both brands. Under MVP's guidance, Omos could become one of the few remaining stars to challenge The Tribal Chief.
Though defeated by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39, the Nigerian Giant displayed dominance over The Beast leading up to the event. At 403 pounds, Omos has the potential to become a monstrous force in WWE, able to withstand interference from The Bloodline.
As tensions escalate within The Bloodline following The Usos' recent loss, Omos could strategically strike on SmackDown when Reigns is most vulnerable, setting up a future challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
MVP clarified Omos' upcoming battle against Seth Rollins at WWE Backlash, a seemingly random match-up. The Nigerian Giant chose Rollins, one of the roster's most impressive superstars, to send a powerful message. MVP praised Rollins' accomplishments during a recent RAW Talk, adding, "That's precisely why The Nigerian Giant chose him." If Omos defeats Reigns' former Shield stablemate, Seth Rollins, at Backlash on May 6th, it will mark the pinnacle of his career thus far.
Following the Puerto Rico premium live event, this triumph could prompt MVP to lobby for a title match against Roman Reigns. This intriguing development has fans eager to see if the young free agent can indeed pose a significant threat to The Tribal Chief's reign, potentially altering the WWE landscape in the process.
