A WWE star is returning a lot sooner than expected at WrestleMania and he will be Omos’ opponent.
Tonight on Monday Night Raw, Omos kept his undefeated streak in place when he defeated Commander Azeez and Apollo Crews in a handicap match. It was essentially a squash match to put over how much of a giant Omos is.
After the match, Omos said he was ready to face anyone who dared to step in the ring with him at WrestleMania. The segment ended without an opponent announced for him.
Earlier today, WrestleVotes reported that WWE has an opponent in mind for Omos and it would surprise some people. It was noted that the opponent would not be Cody Rhodes (he will wrestle Seth Rollins) or Veer Mahaan (it’s unclear when he will appear on TV).
Fightful Select reported that the mystery opponent for Omos will be Bobby Lashley. Lashley was written off TV after the Elimination Chamber show in February. Lashley has been dealing with a shoulder injury since his match with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble and it was not expected that he would be back in time for Mania.
Clearly, he has been training hard to return and it looks like he is healthy enough for the match with Omos in Dallas.
