WWE's Newest Star Oba Femi's Victory Sparks Buzz in Men's Breakout Tournament

The initiation of the 2023 WWE “NXT” Men’s Breakout Tournament unfolded under the spotlight within the realm of “NXT,” featuring Oba Femi pitted against Myles Borne. In a display of dominance, Femi clinched victory through a formidable slam, marking the inaugural progression in the tournament.

Femi made his grand entrance into the WWE “NXT” television spectrum on the 25th of April, starring in an exclusive “NXT” episode titled Spring Breakin, where he engaged in a riveting face-off against Oro Mensah. However, Femi’s first foray into WWE matches dates back over a year earlier, precisely on the 15th of November 2022, in an episode recorded at “NXT Level Up,” where he succumbed to the prowess of Dante Chen.

A pivotal moment transpired on the 10th of October, during an episode of “NXT,” when WWE “Raw” Superstar Cody Rhodes took the stage to herald the return of tournaments. Simultaneously, Rhodes unveiled the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament. Notably, the Women’s Breakout tournament unfolded two months prior, culminating in Lola Vice emerging victorious at Halloween Havoc after overcoming the formidable Kelani Jordan.

The antecedent edition of “NXT’s” Breakout tournament for Men occurred in 2021, with the illustrious Carmelo Hayes, a former “NXT” Champion, ascending as the victor. Presently, Hayes actively partakes in the “WWE SmackDown” domain, vying for the opportunity to contend for the United States Champion title against Logan Paul’s eventual challenger.
