AJ Styles came out with his new bodyguard on the WWE RAW season premiere episode tonight.

AJ’s new muscle is Jordan Omogbehin. The big man has previously appeared on WWE TV as a raw underground bouncer and the biggest ninja in the Akira Tojawa group.

Tonight’s performance saw AJ beating Matt Riddle, while Jordan saw from the ringside. The match was slightly delayed when Jordan refused to leave the ring when asked by the referee. The referee started a 5 count and threatened to disqualify AJ if Jordan did not go. Jordan walked away but only after the referee held his hand in the middle of the count. Jordan later caught Riddle threatening him at the ringside, forming a fist and lowering the riddle. The frightened Riddle quickly stepped back into the ring and took Styles Clash for the finish.

Omogbehin, 26, was born in Lagos, Nigeria and played college basketball for the University of Florida and Morgan State University. He was hired to the WWE Performance Center in October 2018 and later did his WWE NXT In-ring debut at a live event on July 18, 2019. He only served a handful NXT Live event matches since its inception.

There is no word yet on where WWE will go with the new Styles-Omog‌behin pair, but AJ cut out a pre-match promo on how he will run, giving credit to RAW’s “Powers That B” for creating the leader.
