Babatunde’s WWE Debut

In April 2016, Babatunde joined the WWE Performance Center as part of a new class of recruits. He made his professional wrestling debut as a face five months later at an NXT house show where he competed in a battle royal.

Babatunde began accompanying Lio Rush to the ring at NXT live events in April 2018 until Rush was called up to the main roster. He then made his televised debut on April 27 at the Greatest Royal Rumble. He entered the match as the 37th entrant but was eliminated by Braun Strowman. On May 10, 2019, Babatunde made his Evolve debut at Evolve 127, defeating Adrian Alanis.

Babatunde’s RAW Debut

On August 3, 2020, Babatunde made his return to WWE television and his RAW debut. His return was part of a RAW Underground segment and he was assigned the ring name, Dabba-Kato. He began a winning streak on RAW Underground and defeated several wrestlers. He lost to Braun Strowman on the September 21st episode of Monday Night RAW.

Dabba-Kato was drafted to RAW in the WWE’s October 2020 draft. However, Dabba-Kato failed to make a single appearance on the RAW brand.
