The reinvention of Kenny Omega is here, and it’s fantastic

The entire first round of AEW’s World Title Eliminator tournament is taking place on tonight’s (Oct. 21) episode of Dynamite.

The left side of the bracket included Rey Fenix vs. Pentagon El Zero M, as well as Kenny Omega vs. Sonny Kiss.

Fenix and Pentagon did exactly what you expected them to do - steal the show in a brother vs. brother match. Pentagon and Fenix are completely insane, as evidenced by this move:

Pentagon then immediately tried to break his brother’s arm. But Fenix somehow lured his brother in afterwards and surprised him with a Canadian Destroyer for the win.

The biggest story on this side of the bracket, though, was the reinvention of singles wrestler Kenny Omega. Omega is no longer teaming up with Hangman Page, and he has a new attitude to show for it. Omega’s new over-the-top entrance now includes references to Meltzer star ratings, among other things. You can check out a snippet of it here:

Oh, and you can also watch the entire match in the following clip, because Omega squashed Joey Janela’s last-minute replacement in a matter of seconds:

Fenix and Omega are now lined up to face each other next week (Oct. 28) on Dynamite in the semifinals. Who do you think will win and advance to the finals at Full Gear?
