Seven-foot-three former Division-I basketball player Jordan Omogbehin made his in-ring debut at an NXT Live event in Lakeland, Florida this Thursday night.
Omogbehind made quick work of both members of Canadian tag team 3.0, Scott Parker and Shane Matthews, and was managed by the former Stokely Hathaway, now performing under the name Malcom Bivens.
The debut was actually picked up on by Sports Illustrated, who added that Omogbehin was born in Nigeria and played two seasons of college basketball at USF before transferring to Morgan State as a graduate.
