This former CSU-Pueblo wrestler could be the next WWE champion – The Denver Post

In the near future, the next WWE or WWE universal champion could have some Colorado flair to him.

Otis, whose real name is Niko Bogojevic, won the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match Sunday. The winner of the contest receives a contract in a briefcase that gives him a title shot any time he wants. Only four winners have failed to cash in to win the title since the Money in the Bank made its debut in 2005.

Otis wrestled at CSU-Pueblo from 2012-15 before pursuing a career in professional wrestling. Before signing with the WWE, he wrestled for Colorado-based New Revolution Wrestling where he won the NRW Charged title in 2016.

If Otis wins the either of WWE’s top titles, he would be the first wrestler to do so since Bobby Lashley was the ECW world champion in 2007.
