In a sight that’s sure to get Vince McMahon seeing dollar
signs, WWE’s latest monster has made his long-awaited NXT debut.
At last night’s Lakeland, Florida NXT live event, Jordan
Omogbehin made his in-ring debut and left the watching crowd - and referee Drake Wuertz - in absolute awe at his
legit 7’3” frame.
Managed by Courtenay Moore – the former Stokely Hathaway –
Onogbehin easily defeated Team 3.0 in a handicap match. At just 25 years of
age, the Lagos, Nigeria-born giant certainly has the look that WWE brass goes
Omogbehin officially signed with WWE last year and reported to
the Performance Center in October as part of the same class that featured current
NXT stars such as Matt Riddle and Mia Yim. In terms of his background, Jordan
played Division-I college basketball at Morgan State University and the
University of South Florida.
When Stokley Hathaway signed with WWE, many smart fans got
all kinds of excited at the prospect of the charismatic wrestler-cum-manager
being able to showcase his skills in NXT. And now, it looks like part of said
skills will be as the mouthpiece for Jordan Omogbehin.
As for Team 3.0, Chikara standouts Jeffrey Parker and
Matthew Menard-Lee officially signed NXT deals this past January, and the
Canadian duo were clearly trusted with making NXT’s rookie monster look like a
star in his debut match.
Don’t be expecting to see the Jordan Omogbehin and Courtenay
Moore pairing on NXT any time soon, of course, for this monster clearly needs a
lot of work. But in the years to come? NXT – and WWE – could have its next
all-conquering monster on its hands.
