A fan noted on Twitter that they recently finished watching Kenny Omega take on Kazuchika Okada in NJPW and said he was the “best in the world” now, not Chris Jericho. This led to the former WWE Champion retweeting that comment and said Omega wasn’t even the best in Winnipeg, calling him “overrated.” Omega replied by calling Jericho a “corporate stooge,” which has also been a storyline in the Being the Elite series.

Well jeez, what can I say? Never meet your heroes, folks, lest they be a corporate stooge. https://t.co/oGU6R9uCfZ

I love you, Jericho. You're an incredible wrestler and person. However, you'll always be only the second greatest wrestler from Winnipeg.
