AJ Styles says that his bodyguard turned tag team partner Omos is destined to be World Champion.
Omos signed with WWE in 2019, before appearing alongside Akira Tozawa as his ‘Giant Ninja.’ He later featured as the bouncer on Raw Underground.
After Raw Underground was cancelled, the giant Superstar joined forces with AJ Styles, being formally introduced at Survivor Series in 2020. As the months passed, Omos helped Styles during his matches, much to the chagrin of the former World Champion’s opponents.
In March, Omos announced that he would be stepping inside the ring for the first time, teaming with Styles to take on The New Day at WrestleMania 37. On the night Styles and Omos won the Raw Tag Team Championships, with the former college basketball star earning praise for his performance.
The pair lost the titles at SummerSlam but Omos has continued to earn plaudits for his in-ring performances.
Speaking ahead of Crown Jewel where the team unsuccessfully challenged for the Raw Tag Team Titles, AJ Styles reserved special praise for his tag team partner. In conversation with Ring Rules, The Phenomenal One said that he has no doubt that Omos will be World Champion soon.
“Omos and myself can focus on a singles run if we decide. Like you said before He’ll be a champion — WWE Champion/Universal Champion soon. I have no doubt about it,”
After leaving IMPACT Wrestling at the tail end of 2013, AJ Styles returned to ROH while also heading to New Japan. Styles enjoyed great success during this period as a member of The Bullet Club before signing with WWE in 2016.
During his time with WWE, Styles has won the WWE Championship twice, alongside multiple other championship wins.
