• “First time in medical history” – WWE Star On Having Brain Tumor & Other Rare Issues

Omos is the tallest and heaviest wrestler in WWE today. He stands at a height of 7-foot-3 and weighs 403 lbs.

During an interview on the Out Of Character podcast, Omos recalled his history of health issues that almost prevented his WWE signing.

Below is what The Nigerian Giant said:

“I walked into the coach’s office and there was the President of the University and all the doctors from the office were there.

They said, ‘So this is an MRI right here of your brain. Do you see that little speck right there? You have a brain tumor. We don’t know whether it’s benign or it’s a cancerous tumor, and we’re going to have to figure out how to deal with this.’

Literally a month after the MRI, I had the surgery and they had to go through my nose. It was very, very traumatic. But in the process of doing the testing, they found that not only do I have the pituitary tumor, I have partial Cushing’s disease, which is very rare.

There’s different forms of large human beings, but it’s a different variation and I had all of these combinations. It was the first time in medical history with someone with all three together.

It became this sort of anomaly in the medical world. I had a journal published about my case.”
