WWE WrestleMania 39: Here’s who Brock Lesnar will face in Hollywood

At WrestleMania 39, Nigerian wrestler Omos and Brock Lesnar will square off. It will be a match between two titans of the wrestling business, and when Lesnar and Omos faced off on WWE RAW this week, it was obvious that Omos’ enormous girth overshadowed Lesnar.

Lesnar and MVP, the manager of Omos, had a brief altercation before MVP issued a warning to Lesnar. “Brock Lesnar, you are a brilliant athlete but a terrible tactician. You made a critical error putting your hands on me last week or two weeks ago. But the worst, the biggest mistake you’ve ever made in your career, was accepting a match against the 7’3 inch, 416-pound Nigerian giant Omos at WrestleMania,” said MVP, the manager of Omos.

Omos is a Brain tumour survivor from his Basketball days

To ratchet up the tension before their explosive confrontation at The Show of Shows, Omos then threw Lesnar off the top rope in the ring. The Beast Incarnate then stormed out of the arena, extremely furious.

Omos was a basketball player; he competed for Morgan State University and the University of South Florida. Omos was given the news that he had a brain tumour while still a student at the institution. The doctors discovered other strange illnesses that Omos had by looking at his tumour and testing for it.

Omos had previously discussed how his medical problem was discovered on an episode of “Out of Character” with host Ryan Satin. He had described how an MRI scan and surgery were required to remove his brain tumour.

“Literally, a month after the MRI, I had the surgery, and they had to go through my nose. It was very, very traumatic… But in the process of doing the testing, they found that not only do I have the pituitary tumour, I had gigantism, I had partial Cushing’s disease [a condition where the adrenal glands overproduce cortisol], which is very rare… There’s different forms of large human beings, but it’s like different variations, and I had all three combinations — Andre [The Giant] had acromegaly, which is one of them. And I have that. But I had the other three combined with it, so my case was very, very unique. It was the first time in medical history they’d seen someone with all three together. I became this sort of anomaly in the medical world… I had a journal published about me — about my case,” Omos revealed on the show.
