Kenny Omega's Alex is up to Super Gold rank, watch as he bodies Jiyuna with a stylish parry sequence

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • March 20, 2017 at 6:03 p.m. PDT

Considering the man is a full time wrestler for New Japan Pro Wrestling, the fact that superstar Kenny Omega has found the time to level his Alex up to Super Gold is very impressive.

Come to think of it, perhaps the fact that he's using Season 2 Alex to climb the online ranks is impressive all in itself. In any case, the celebrity ran into none other that Jiyuna, (the producer of DaigotheBeasTV) while he was streaming a few days back.

Not only did Omega score the win with the Third Strike fan favorite, but he did so in total stylish fashion. Check out the sequence right here:

These two actually played for quite some time, and if you'd like to see their full set you can see it over at Animeilluminati's stream archive page.

I like to think that if Kenny were to ever play full time he'd be a real monster. He's got a lot of natural talent at fighting games.

Id say rightfully deserved for this guy waking up with unsafe target combo into v trigger. Hella scrub tactic. Let's Go Kenny!

Alex needs "The People's Elbow", safe on block, and 500 stun.

I love Kenny.
You don't get to Gold with charisma.
You get there because you love the game.

Kenny has been improving as much in the game as he has in the ring. It's really great to see.

Watch him now, where he currently works!

You should see his biggest match thusfar.

Kenny Omega vs Okada at wrestle Kingdom 11.

Best part about this. Okada is sponsoring tekken as King gets an outfit that reflects on the IWGP world champ. Complete with the Rainmaker move that Okada uses as a finisher.

If they make an alex costume that looks like kenny omega + the omega driver replacing the razor's edge that he does I would definitely buy that LOL.

Kenny Omega is Hype Incarnate. Such a humble dude for his tremendous talent & spectacular charisma.
Dave Meltzer(a reputable pro wrestling critic) gave Kenny O & Kazuchika Okada his 1st ever 6 out of 5 star rating for their epic battle at New Japan's Wrestle Kingdom in January!
While I could continue to "mark out" about Senpai Omega-San for an exorbitant amount of time, I will say that it is an absolute honor to have such a SuperStar of his status modestly endorse Street Fighter & the FGC & by proxy video game culture at large. I mean, surely if this guy's a gamer, there IS hope after all for our "neck-bearded, basement-dwelling weaboos" caricature? This wildly exaggerated cliché becomes that much more obsolete every year.

P.S. Tekken 7 has given King, Okada's finisher, the Rainmaker(Wristlock Lariat). Maybe Alex or another grappler may wield Kenny's finisher? The One-Winged Angel(One-handed electric chair driver)

Hah! too sweet indeed!

Maybe one day, somehow if the stars aligned we'll have a cross promotion between WWE and NJPW.

It'll be pretty sick to have Balor who's a face currently maybe battling Cena/Reigns, Cena/Reigns looks like he's about to win, but then interference from the NJPW bullet club. Balor stood by Reign's side along with AJ styles, Luke, Carl like a WWE vs NJPW.

Reigns thought he got his back covered then Balor kicks him in the gut and does the Bloody Sunday DDT. Balor heel turn, the club made their mark known.

....yeah not gonna happen will it? :P

Not to undermine his achievement at all but Jiyu is a bit new to sf5 (1.5 weeks playing)
