The recent WWE Backlash Premium Live Event saw Seth Rollins defeat Omos in their first-ever match, which had just about no build but ended up exceeding many expectations.
A new report from PWInsider notes that there was a lot of internal happiness with Omos and how he performed in the match against Rollins. There was a feeling within WWE that this was one of the best top matches Omos has ever had.
Omos did not appear on this week’s RAW or SmackDown for a follow-up to Backlash. However, he is expected to receive more of a push after coming out of the WWE Draft as a free agent, along with MVP.
More of a push. That’s wonderful. So we’ll see even more of him dominating squash matches on Raw/Smackdown and then losing PPV matches to burnish his opponents’ “overcoming the odds” credentials?
