WWE Changing Omos Direction, Dustin Rhodes’ Mom Passes

As per a report, WWE could be changing the direction of one of its biggest superstars, Omos. Plus, Dustin Rhodes' mom passes away.

According to a new report, it sounds like the WWE is changing the direction of one of its biggest superstars, Omos. In fact, It also looks like he may return as part of a popular past stable. More on this story, below.

WWE Changing Omos Direction

The Hurt Business was once a major faction that dominated Monday Night RAW. Led by MVP, it consisted of Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin, and Cedric Alexander.

Xero News notes on Patreon recently that WWE plans to bring the group back. However, this time, they’ll be adding Omos into the mix.

As Xero News states, there has been “internal talk” of The Hurt Business reuniting, and some want Omos to be a part of the new faction. Only time will tell.

More On WWE Changing Omos Direction

Omos is currently linked to MVP. The two connected after MVP turned his back on Bobby Lashley.

With that said, Omos hasn’t been on RAW for a little while now. The last match fans saw him in was at the 2022 Crown Jewel event in early November when he was defeated by Braun Strowman.

Omos signed with the WWE on January 1, 2019. He immediately began training at the Performance Center.

In June 2020, he made his TV debut on RAW. He was introduced as a surprise member of Tozawa’s “ninja faction”.

As he was the tallest in the group, he was referred to as “Giant Ninja”. Shortly after that, he was repackaged as a bodyguard/doorman/bouncer for Shane McMahon’s “Raw Underground”.

RAW Underground was canceled in October 2020. Omos would then join forces with AJ Styles.

By the end of 2021, AJ and Omos parted ways. It wasn’t long before he would align with MVP, shortly after WrestleMania that year.

During his short tenure with the company, Omos has been a WWE Tag Title holder (with AJ Styles). He also won The Rock 25th Anniversary Battle Royal at the Survivor Series in 2021.

Bobby Lashley has been hinting at a heel turn, lately. Could The Hurt Business return with an enforcer in Omos?

On to some very sad news. It looks like wrestling legend, Dustin Rhodes, has suffered another major loss.

Losing A Parent Is Never Easy

Ms. Runnels was admitted to hospital in February 2022. From the sounds of Dustin’s post, she fought a painful battle but was surrounded by family.

Dustin notes that both he and his two sisters, Mandy and Kristin, were by their mother’s side in her final moments. Something that was likely quite comforting to Ms. Runnels.
