Standing 6’5” and weighing 295 pounds, Ojinnaka looks to follow in the footsteps of other football players turned grapplers such as: Ernie Ladd, Wahoo McDaniel and Bronko Nagurski as he transitions from the football field to the wrestling ring.
Recruited by Ring of Honor for his agility, power and size, Ojinnaka is an elite athlete. Demonstrating exceptional potential during his Ring of Honor Dojo tryout, he’s touted as a blue chip prospect – a label Ojinnaka is quite familiar with.
Drafted in the 5th round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2006, Ojinnaka spent 4 years in Atlanta before moving on to play for the New England Patriots in 2010. That year, he was part of the best offensive line in the NFL. Ojinnaka would go on to play for the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams, utilizing his speed and power to become one of the fiercest offensive guards in the league.
After over 100 games and achieving his childhood dream of playing in the NFL, Ojinnaka now hopes to realize another lifelong dream: winning the Ring of Honor World Heavyweight Championship.
Ojinnaka’s quest to accomplish this new challenge begins shortly as he readies to make his debut in Ring of Honor, an organization known for its elite level of competition.
