Last night's WWE Backlash 2020 pay-per-view saw Akira Tozawa lead a gang of motorcycle ninjas to interfere in a cinematic brawl between The Viking Raiders and Street Profits, making for one of the night's weirder moments.

The most notable member of Tozawa's group was the katana-wielding behemoth who entered the scene after the original squad was dispatched. He, too, was dealt with, though the sheer size of the lad at least got people talking.

Lords of Pain have now revealed the giant as 7'3" Performance Center recruit Jordan Omogbehin, who was technically making his televised WWE debut.

Omogbehin, a former basketball player, signed for WWE in late 2018. He started working the NXT house show loop in July 2019 and caught the eye when clips of him in action started circulating on Twitter that summer, though was yet to even sniff television prior to Backlash.

Big Jordan's billed height is one of the highest in WWE history. Here's a picture of him making Kevin Nash and Scott Hall look like little old men:-

There's currently no word on whether or not Tozawa's ninja group is a full-time endeavour or a one-off, so who knows when we'll see Omogbehin next.
