That’s a tall order indeed. Wrestling is, above all else, a visual medium. You can hear about wrestling, you can read about wrestling and you can talk about wrestling, but at the end of the day, it’s all about what you can see in wrestling that really matters. That’s why it’s such a big deal to have something that you have to see to believe, which NXT may have just done.
On Thursday at an NXT live event in Lakeland, Florida, the 7’3 Jordan Omogbehin made his in-ring debut in a handicap match. Omogbehin went on to win the match over the also recently signed team of 3.0. Omogbehin signed with the company in October 2018 in the same class as Matt Riddle, Mia Yim and Humberto Carrillo among others. There is no word on when he could make his television debut.
This is one of those things that needs to be seen to be believed. Check out the new giant in action:
Opinion: Now that’s a giant. His size and look alone are going to be enough to keep him around for a very long time and there’s nothing wrong with that. If NXT can teach him how to be even passable in the ring, they could have something special on their hand. You can’t teach that kind of size and Omogbehin is one of the tallest wrestlers in WWE history. This could be good, and there is a real chance WWE could do this right.
