As reported in our Wrestling World news board recently, WWE had intended that former WWE Champion AJ Styles and the famous Raw Underground bouncer, Jordan Omogbehin join forces, a few weeks ago. Omogbehin, who had been hired by Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) along with Mia Yim, Matt Riddle and Damian Priest at NXT just a few years ago, had never been used in the rings of the yellow show.
The only appearances we had seen of Jordan Omogbehin had been on the main roster, first as Akira Tozawa's giant masked ninja and then as a bouncer of Shane McMahon's format, Raw Underground, with the athlete never taking part in a real match in the rings of the McMahon-owned company.
Jordan Omogbehin becomes AJ Styles' bodyguard on Raw
As already anticipated by our news yesterday, Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) intended to support the giant with AJ Styles and in the end, it did so in the last episode of the red show, where the former WWE world champion presented his new reinforcement, which will join every week as has been done many times by several other colleagues of Styles, throughout the history of Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
In a tweet, Styles teased the new development. He posted, captioning a picture of Omogbehin standing behind him as if guarding him, "Told you tonight was gonna be BIG... Welcome back to the #phenomenal era of Monday Night #WWERaw!!" Jordan Omogbehin who was born in Lagos, Nigeria played professional basketball for the Nigerian national team.
He also played college basketball at the Morgan State University and the University of South Florida. Standing 7 feet 3 inches, Omogbehin opted for a career change from basketball to wrestling and decided to join the WWE's Performance Center, in Orlando, Florida.
As we mentioned earlier, Jordan Omogbehin managed to enter the Performance Center and then NXT in the same annual class as current North American NXT champion Damian Priest, Retribution member Mia Yim and Smackdown wrestler Matt Riddle, with the giant black who, however, played briefly on Raw as the ninja of Tozawa and then as protector of the underground door of Shane McMahon, which was eventually canceled in the past few weeks, opening the doors to this new storyline for him by the WWE.
