WWE Superstar Omos Attended High School in MoCo

On Sunday night, WWE wrestler Omos will face off against Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, TX. But, did you know that he attended high school in Rockville?

The 7’3, 335 Nigerian-born Jordan Omogbehin moved to America with his family and attended school/played basketball at Montrose Christian for the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 school years.

He went on to attend and play for the University of South Florida before moving back to Maryland and attending/playing for Morgan State University. His college basketball career spanned from 2012 to 2015.

Omogbehin signed with WWE in October 2018, and made his in-ring debut at last year’s WrestleMania 37 in Tampa, FL.

Omos won’t have a shortage of people to talk MoCo with at WrestleMania. Shane McMahon, the son of WWE chairman and owner Vince McMahon, was born in Gaithersburg. The McMahons (Vince, his wife Linda, and Shane) even lived in Montgomery Village for about a decade, and the home they owned was recently sold.

Below you’ll see Omos’ opponent for this Sunday, former WWE champion Bobby Lashley, giving the MoCoShow a shoutout.

Sorry to regurgitate this topic again, but nearly every celebrity identified with a connection to MoCo has been featured here, with the exception of Rich Moriarty of CBS-TV’s Ghost series. He is mentioned in the “other” location but not here. Is there a problem showcasing this talented individual?

Hello, Richie Moriarty has been featured on our website and all of our associated social media accounts. With that said, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of local celebrities we haven’t highlighted yet.

Thank you,
