Chris Jericho took to Twitter to praise AEW World Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega by calling him the best wrestler in the world. Jericho tweeted the following:
“In my opinion, Kenny Omega is the best wrestler in the world today. Others may feel differently, but I’ve been in the ring w everybody currently working on top & there’s nobody close. That’s why Kenny’s AEW Champ-the most protected title in the biz. It’s Impossible to argue.”
Omega responded with some not-so-subtle references to Jim Cornette and Jim Ross “Meh. I’d rather believe the bigot cuck, dimwit e-drones, and the guy that thinks I’m the WWE champion.”
The last line is a reference to when Jim Ross accidentally referred to Omega as the WWE Champion on an episode of Dynamite.
Omega and Jericho have wrestled each other in singles action twice as their first match saw Omega beat Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom 12. The second time saw Jericho beat Omega at Double or Nothing 2019.
Omega will defend his AEW World Title against Orange Cassidy and PAC in a triple threat match at Double or Nothing this Sunday while at this same show, Jericho will take part in Stadium Stampede.
