Photo op turns WWE real quick as Kenny Omega hits Jebailey with the Sweet Chin Music in the CEO 2016 ring

CEO is a tournament series that is known for its amazing presentation. Pro wrestling-style entrances for players, epic lighting spectacles, and even a giant wrestling ring for competitors to run their sets is the norm for one hot June weekend every year.

Day 1 of CEO 2016 is well underway, and we've already witnessed one of the best and most hilarious moments to ever occur at the event.

After his match against EG|Justin Wong in the Street Fighter 5 rumble, Kenny Omega was greeted by a fired up Alex Jebailey, the tournament's organizer. What started as a friendly photo opportunity for the pro wrestler and long-time fighting game community member quickly turned WWE when Jebailey attacked Omega during a handshake.

Omega was ready for the attempted grapple, though, and fired back with a Sweet Chin Music kick putting Jebailey to sleep in his own right. You can see the moment unfold in the GIF below.

And of course, the aftermath...

Editor's note: As a disclaimer, I'd just like to say that all of this was performed in jest and this was very clearly not a real assault of any kind.
This isn't the first time we've seen something like this go down in the CEO ring. Last year, EG|K-Brad recreated former WWE superstar Stone Cold Steve Austin's entrance, complete with Stone Cold Stunner on the announcer.
