It was all tears of joy when Nigerian-born WWE star Omos reunited with his family in his native country after 14 years of not seeing them. According to TMZ, the gigantic athlete, whose real name is Tolulope “Jordan” Omogbehin, made the trip to the country of his birth after his November 5 WWE Crown Jewel matchup with Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia.

In the video, “The Nigerian Giant” is seen quietly making his way into his family’s Lagos home before his relatives swarm over him with hugs and kisses after seeing him. And though the 28-year-old athlete is very conspicuous because of his height (7’3″) and weight (more than 400 pounds), that did not prevent him from pulling off the surprise. The emotional moment was also captured by a camera crew that accompanied. 

Omos’ family was reportedly unaware of the visit. It is also anticipated that the WWE star will make a huge announcement during his trip to his native Nigeria

The rising WWE star was born in Lagos in 1994. He and his family later resettled in the United States. And he is said to have initially played basketball during his high school and college years in the United States. 

The WWE signed Omos in 2019, and he went ahead to win the WWE Raw tag team title with AJ Styles.
