MVP says his goal is to lead Omos to the top in WWE.
Omos initially made his debut as part of Raw Underground before he formed an alliance with AJ Styles in 2020. The duo became a dominant combination, as they captured the Raw Tag Team Championship by defeating the New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) at WrestleMania. RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) eventually dethroned Styles and Omos, and the giant later turned on Styles in December 2021.
Omos then broke out on his own, and he aligned with MVP following his loss to Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 38. Omos defeated Lashley at WrestleMania Backlash, but "The All Mighty" beat the duo at WWE Hell in a Cell. In another high-profile feud, Omos lost to Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel 2022, but MVP is determined to lead the big man to greatness.
Speaking on Good Karma Wrestling, MVP named guiding Omos to championship gold as his top goal in WWE. He stated that they'll get there one step at a time, though they have to deal with a star-studded roster that includes greats like Roman Reigns.
"I hope to accomplish one thing at this point in my career, and that is leading the Nigerian giant to championship gold. He knows what it is to be a winner. He’s been a winner his entire life. Now, he’s made it to the WWE. I would say the NFL of professional wrestling, if you will, the absolute apex. No one is bigger, no one is stronger, and with my experience, and his aptitude, the WWE Championship, I would say that it’s an inevitability. We will get there, but it’s not easy. I’m gonna discount the talents of anyone else in the WWE. You have some amazingly talented people. For example, Roman Reigns, who is the undisputed champion right now. We’re trying to get there, but intelligently, step by step. The Nigerian giant Omos is smashing everyone in his path and the goal, my goal is to see him hoist the premiere championship in all of sports entertainment," MVP said.
MVP went on to note that he's a business-minded individual, and he sees opportunities everywhere, but he is focused on getting Omos to the top. Later in the interview, he stated that he enjoys being able to lend his experience and the lessons he has learned to Omos. He noted that, as a wrestler, he was half man, half amazing, but Omos is absolutely incredible.
"I’m privileged and I’m honored to be able to, at this point in my career, take everything I’ve learned, over the 20 years that I’ve traveled around the globe, being a champion, all around the world, now I can all of that, the little things, the big things, my experiences, and I can channel that information into what is without question a future first-ballot Hall of Famer. I can take everything I’ve learned, and I can put that into a prospect like the Nigerian giant Omos, that gives me great joy. I know what I was able to accomplish, and if I was seven-foot-three, 416 pounds, I would have held every record in the WWE. I would have held every championship. But I’m not. I’m only half man, half amazing. He is 100% amazing. So I can take all of my experiences, put it into him, and I can live vicariously through the Nigerian giant Omos as we conquer the WWE Universe," MVP said.
Omos isn't the only giant with his sights set on greatness; Braun Strowman recently teased that he might have to be the man who dethrones Roman Reigns. Check out his comments here.
