Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

Bryan Alvarez on WOL today claimed that Kenny Omega has a better chance of leading wrestling into a new boom period than Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, because he's more of a representation of the everyday man like Sammartino, Hogan and SCSA were back in their day, because he's part of the video game community and is much more inclusive when it comes to LGBTQ and stuff.

Thoughts?

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

I'm not sure if he is a "more of a representation of the everyday man" but he is, undoubtedly, the best north american performer (that I know of, of course).

A comparison with Roman and Seth is ridiculous in my eyes, he's clearly better than these 2 in every single aspect I can think of.

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

Alvarez is probably correct.

MJF is better than all three though.

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

I think he's a more diverse talent when comparing all 3 in terms of his skill set. And don't get me wrong, all 3 are great. And yes, if the guy stepped foot in WWE tomorrow I think he could instantly be one of the guys you build around.

But even with AEW, what I like about what I'm seeing so far is that they don't look determined to build around Kenny and then everyone else. From Kenny, Cody, Jericho, The Bucks, Mox, and others they look they're trying to break away from the archaic formula of having one top guy.

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

Saying Kenny is better than Reigns and Rollins.....well yeah. That is like saying the grass is green or the sky is blue, that isn't exactly a "hot take."

If that's the case, the WWE should roll with Xavier Woods. He has an entire Youtube channel dedicated to gaming and we've seen him do some MMF stuff with Brad Maddox and Paige.

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

Is being pro-LGBTQ an everyday man thing? It seems more like something that celebrities and businesses promote for woke points. I don't think your average man spends much time thinking about it.

Re: Bryan Alvarez: Kenny Omega is THE GUY

Well yeah. He's the total package. Even the people who say talking isn't his strong suit can't explain the Kenny Omega promo compilations sitting at hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.

His biggest asset is that he just sounds so different from most wrestlers.

I'd argue Velveteen and Wyatt are also megastar talent but that's never going to happen in WWEs current climate

66% of Americans are "pro-LGBT"
