The 28-year-old WWE rising star Omos is succeeding as a heel, and the organisation now made him clash against Seth Rollins after he lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39. The former Shield member is likely to receive a lot of support now that he was drafted in RAW and qualifies for a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. 


After defeating Logan Paul at WrestleMania, the company would undoubtedly support him more. Rollins builds up his character to compete for the huge championship opportunity at the Night of Champions by overcoming Omos. Meanwhile, former WWE referee Teddy Long has a piece of advice for Rollins ahead of his clash in Backlash.

“I still think you’re pretty much going to see the same. I don’t think it will be really long. Maybe a little bit more competitive this time than it was with Brock. Now Omos understands a little bit more about what his role is, and what he needs to do in there. So I think that will be a pretty good match, but like I said, I don’t think it will be too long, and it shouldn’t be. 

"You got a big giant here, either way, it goes, he can get something on you quick and get the 1-2-3. My thing with Seth Rollins, stay away from the man. Cause if he gets his hands on you, he’s pretty much in control,” Long was quoted as saying by Sportskeeda.


What could be the reason behind WWE extending with OMOS

Omos is clearly a top priority for WWE, and they have an excellent cause to be. Omos is a superstar of the calibre that WWE rarely sees, and whether or not he is a strong wrestler is not the most crucial factor; rather, his reputation as one of the best people is what will carry him a long way.

He has been improving in the ring, but this bout against Seth Rollins will be his hardest challenge. He needs to prove that the confidence people have in him is well-founded.
