Throwback: See Video of WWE Superstars That Visited Nigerian Church For Prayers.

It was an amazing thing to me seeing some popular WWE superstars years back in Nigeria and not only that they visited Nigeria, it was more surprising seeing them in the church. On Sunday December 8, 2013, my attention was drawn to the sitting room after I overheard someone speaking authoritatively over the Television and with American accent. That was so unusual to me as such was not often heard in our local TV channels. Rushing over to the sitting room to find out who it could be, behold it was American WWE Superstar Bobby Lashly talking. Wow! that seemed unbelievable to me as i never imagined these superstars would ever visit Nigeria let alone coming to the church on a Sunday morning.

Bobby Lashly had visited Nigeria with a team of WWE superstars from America who came for the Universal Promotion Wrestling Federation (UPWF) Heavy Weight Championship title, held at Eko hotel Lagos in December, 2013. The title match was between WWE American Superstar Shelton Benjamin and Igbo born international wrestler Osita Offor known as De Ultimate Commander on the stage.

The tough match between the two ended up in favour of UPWF Nigerian Superstar, De Ultimate commander and for the first time, a Nigerian won the UPWF championship belt with Nigerian Flag engraved on it. His victory appeared unbelievable to WWE superstars as they had never imagined the Nigerian born wrestling could ever defeat Shelton Benjamin who was among the best professional fighters in the world.

Ultimate commander had credited his championship victory to God and to his prophet, TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church Of All Nation (SCOAN) whom he said had always prayed for him ahead of the competition and assured him victory. Some of the WWE Superstars then decided to go with him to his church (SCOAN) as the belt was to be unveiled there. They eqaully came having heard much of him and had wanted to see the prophet TB Joshua. They asked for his prayers continuous prayers and blessings upon them.

Few of them seen in SCOAN includes

A five time word champion, four times ECW Heavy Weight Champion and a one time NWA World heavy weight champion, Shane Douglas.
