MVP Hits Out At Comparison Between The Great Khali And Omos

Omos & MVP stand over Bobby Lashley

MVP has shot back at comparisons between his latest charge Omos and former World Champion, The Great Khali.

On the Raw after WrestleMania, MVP turned his back on his long-time client Bobby Lashley and aligned with Omos. Lashley had defeated Omos and WrestleMania, and MVP took issue over the former World Champion appearing to think that he no longer needs his services.

It has since been announced that Lashley and Omos will meet in the ring again at WrestleMania Backlash. In the lead up to the show, on the most recent episode of the red brand, Lashley got the win over his giant rival in an arm wrestling contest.

Since arriving in WWE, Omos has been compared to many giants of the past including The Great Khali and Andre The Giant.

Posting on social media, MVP took issues with the comparisons to the Indian star, describing him as “awful.”

If you compare the not so “Great” Khali to the Colossus @TheGiantOmos you’re an idiot of the highest order. I’ve been in the ring with both of them. I’m an expert in this craft. Khali was AWFUL. Omos has HUGE potential. Watch how I move…

During his run with AJ Styles, Omos earned huge plaudits for his in-ring performances, even earning praise from WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker. During an interview in November, The Deadman said that the colossus was the closest the company have come to having another Andre The Giant.

“I’ll say this, there will never be another Andre The Giant but [Omos] is as close as we’ve come. That’s a big statement but he’s special. Omos is special and the big thing for him to know and to realise is that he is special and that he’s different from everybody else.”

Andre The Giant was such a figure in the world of wrestling that upon his death in 1993, Vince McMahon created the WWE Hall Of Fame to honour Andre’s legacy with the giant being the first and only inductee in the inaugural class.
