Omos Has Thought About A Face Run, Is Worried About Being Sympathetic As A Giant

Omos has been presented as a heel throughout his run in WWE given his massive size and ability to toss smaller men around.

The real story of Omos is one who has overcome an undiagnosed brain tumor, torn ACLs, and more. Omos has gained popularity with "Omosapiens," but remains a deadly force of destruction on television under the guidance of MVP.

Speaking to Blake Murphy of Sportsnet, Omos did ponder life as a babyface in WWE.

“From a psychology standpoint, it can be very challenging for someone who’s seven-foot-three, muscles, and huge and intimidating, to get sympathy,” Omos said. “Heels don’t inspire people, only babyfaces do. And for me, that’s going to be the challenge: How can this big, giant person inspire people? Because there’s no relatability to someone who’s seven-foot-three … the moment where you see me with somebody smaller than me, the brain says, ‘I want the little guy to kick the big guy’s ass.’”

Omos said he has "thought about it quite a bit" in regards to being a babyface given his personal journey to WWE.

Whether he's a heel or babyface, Omos is living his dream.

“This is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. This is fun,” he said. “To wake up every day, go to work, play a character on TV that either people love or hate, people are so invested in the character you present on TV. What we do, it’s so amazing, man. And to know that some kid out there watching the show, they’re going to grow up watching me on TV. I could have never pictured this life.”

Omos competed in the Slim Jim Battle Royal at WWE SummerSlam.
