AJ Styles introduced a new bodyguard this week on Raw who appeared to be Jordan Omogbehin. As seen previously, he used to feature on Raw Underground as Shane McMahon’s bouncer or the door-keeper around the entry. With that segment permanently being canceled, now he has a new role in the company. He seems to have garnered quite the attention of the professional wrestling circuit with his unique physique which is gigantic, by all means.
Weighing 291 lbs. and having a height of 7’3’’ Jordon Omogbehin is a wonder of nature. He came into the WWE Performance Center through the same batch as Mia Yim, Matt Riddle, and Damian Priest. While these names have been used on TV via the black and yellow brand, he was mostly kept off NXT television. The first time, he appeared on TV was as the very tall ninja in Akira Tozawa’s army of ninja, earlier this summer. Then he was appointed as the Raw Underground guard.
Jordan Omogbehin – Details of new seven-footer in the WWE
Jordan Omogbehin is a Nigerian professional wrestler. Born in Lagos, 1994, he is 26 years old. Prior to being a part of the wrestling industry, he was a college basketball player for the University of South Florida and for Morgan State University. His college basketball career continued from 2012 to 2015. It was in October 2018, that WWE announced him as a new signee to train under their developmental territory.
Atlantic Shores Christian Academy in Chesapeake, Virginia is the place where Jordan Omogbehin attended and graduated from. Through high school, he played basketball and continued in the sport while attending the University of South Florida (USF) from 2012-2014. He played in the center position during that span.
He also allegedly have met basketball legend Hakeem Olajuwan during the USF Bull’s team trip to Houston, Texas in 2014. Omogbehin also played basketball at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland after getting transferred to USF. He played in the center position for the Morgan State Bears during the 2014-2015 session.
In 2019, Jordan Omogbehin made his in-ring debut during a July 18 NXT house show, defeating team 3.0 in a Two-On-One Handicap match. Following that, he made several house shows before landing directly into the main roster, this year.
According to Fightful, the idea was pitched, earlier this week in WWE to have Jordan Omogbehin become the in-ring enforcer for AJ Styles on RAW. The storyline began on this week’s Raw as it seems he’d no more be in the big ninja or the Raw Underground role. Perhaps, this marks the beginning of his wrestling career.
