WWE legend Brock Lesnar scored a WrestleMania sized victory over Omos with the biggest F-5 of his career.
The Beast Incarnate hit his signature move on the towering Nigerian Giant, who stands at seven foot three and weighs over 400lbs, as they opened Sunday night’s SoFi Stadium show with a hard hitting heavyweight scrap.
Omos started strong and tossed the former world champion around effortlessly, but Lesnar took control with a series of impressive German Suplexes.
His first attempt at the F-5 failed as he collapsed under the weight of his opponent, but it was second time lucky as he hoisted him up and hit it for a three count.
The 45-year-old legend accepted a challenge made by MVP on his client’s behalf to battle the Nigerian Giant on the grandest stage as the second night gets away on Saturday night.
Lesnar was coming off the back of a rivalry with Bobby Lashley, with the pair most recently fighting at Elimination Chamber where the All Mighty lost by disqualification.
Fans had suspected a potential final match was coming at WrestleMania, but that wasn’t to be with Lashley’s own role on the card unclear heading into the show.
Instead Lesnar faced Omos, who coincidentally beat the All Mighty at last year’s event.
The match with Lesnar was a real test for Omos, who has been in high profile spots involving the likes of AJ Styles but is yet to really catch fire as a legitimate threat at the top of the card.
Lesnar has commented on his future amid rumours he could be moving on from wrestling after this weekend, but he suggested the door is still open.
He told ESPN: ‘Every time that I think that I want to be done … I get in the ring, I get to the building, and that’s the part of the business that I really love.
‘I left the business early because I just didn’t like the travel … I’m just a simple man, and it was just too much for me at the time… I don’t know how long I’m going to be around. I don’t know that.’
