Meet WWE’s 7ft 3in giant Omos who is taller than the Big Show and third biggest wrestler to ever climb into the ring – The Sun
UNDERTAKER, Great Khali and Braun Strowman are all monsters that have dominated WWE in recent times… but now there is a new giant in town.
The company’s NXT developmental brand handed a debut to the humongous Jordan Omogbehin, 28, in 2016.
And the 7ft 3in colossus made quite the impression as he dominated TWO OPPONENTS on his winning bow.
Omos performs in RAW and made his name as a bodyguard of AJ Styles.
Flanked by his manager Stokely Hathaway, recently renamed Malcolm Bivens in NXT, the former University of South Florida and Morgan State basketball player defeated tag-team Team 3.0 at a non-televised live event in Lakeland, Florida.
Omogbehin was born in Lagos, Nigeria but played high school basketball in the States after moving to Virginia.
After quitting the court, the towering behemoth was snapped up by NXT founder and wrestling legend Triple H.
He has been honing his skills at the WWE Performance Centre in Florida ever since and was finally handed an opportunity to impress in front of a crowd.

Despite his 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!
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 now with the AEW, is a baby compared to those big boys.
The 47-year-old former world champion, real name Paul Wight, stands at just seven feet.
PLAYING WITH THE BIG BOYS – WWE’s tallest ever superstars
1. Giant Gonzalez – 8ft
2. Andre The Giant – 7ft 4in
3. Jordan Omogbehin – 7ft 3in
4. Giant Silva – 7ft 2in
