Teddy Long’s advice
Long said that Omos understands a little bit more about what his role is and what he needs to do there. He also cautioned Rollins to stay away from Omos because if he gets his hands on Rollins, he’s pretty much in control.
“I still think you’re pretty much going to see the same. I don’t think it will be real long. Maybe a little bit more competitive this time that it was with Brock. Now Omos understands a little bit more about what his role is, what he needs to do in there. So I think that will be a pretty good match, but like I said, I don’t think it will be too long, and it shouldn’t be. You got a big giant here, either way it goes, he can get something on you quick and get the 1-2-3. My thing with Seth Rollins, stay away from the man. Cause if he gets his hands on you, he’s pretty much in control,” said Long.

Rollins surprised by the match announcement
WWE revealed shortly after WrestleMania 39 that Rollins and Omos will square off at Backlash 2023 for the first time. The news baffled the WWE Universe because there had been no indication of animosity between the two in previous weeks.
Over the past ten or so years, Rollins has fought some of the strongest competitors in the WWE, including Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. It would be interesting to see if he has what it takes to defeat The Nigerian Giant in Backlash 2023.
