In few years, Nigerians will be dominating the Sports entertainment industry as another Nigerian wrestler is on the WWE long roster.

Over a year ago, Triple H who is the founder of World Wrestling Entertainment development division NXT saw the company landed 7ft 3in Yoruba giant Jordan Omogbehin.
WWE’s next big star should be a familiar face to sports fans in his home country. Tolulope “Jordan” Omogbehin is the latest wrestling superstar to top 7 feet.
Despite his stunning towering frame, Omogbehin is still only third on the all-time list of tallest WWE superstars.
Giant Gonzalez, real name Jorge Gonzalez and who had spells in both WCW and WWE, tops the list.
The icon, who died in 2010 aged 44, stood a ginormous eight feet tall. He retired from the WWE in 1993, 27-years ago.
That even dwarfed the legendary late, great Andre ‘The Giant’ who was only a mere 7ft 4in in comparison.
And the Big Show, who is still under contract with WWE, is a baby compared to those big boys.
The 47-year-old former world champion, real name Paul Wight, stands at just seven feet.
Before signing with the WWE he was a center on the University of South Florida men’s basketball team from 2012 to 2014.
Recall that WWE is well stacked for big men in NXT with another Nigerian 6ft 10in Babatunde Aiyegbusi currently under their watch.
This appears to be apart of WWE’s long-term plan of local globalisation where they can snatch talent from all corners of the globe.
While the United Kingdom is the only country to get a second Performance Center at the moment, rumours of Japan and India getting the green light have been strong for a while and no one can rule out one in Nigeria especially with the ever increasing followership.
Big Jordan as his official WWE name was handed a debut in mid 2019.
And the 7ft 3in (2.21m) colossus made quite the impression as he dominated two opponents on his winning bow.
He defeated tag-team Team 3.0 at a non-televised live event in Lakeland, Florida.
The 26-year-old also made an appearance with Dexter Lumis in WWE Evolve in a non televised NXT Dade City event late last year.
