* Similar to Xavier Woods, Wrestling/KennyOmega is a big gamer too, particularly in the realm of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqPZdqqKjT4 fighting games]]. He also patterned much of his wrestling persona on anime and video game influences (such as the "Omega" part of his ring name coming from recurring ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' boss enemy Omega Weapon). This came to a head at CEO 2016 as not only did Kenny participate in the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' tournament but Woods dropped in as well (being a Florida local) and the two took to the main stage [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxb5BuecXoc to do battle]].

* Similar to Xavier Woods, Wrestling/KennyOmega is a big gamer too, particularly in the realm of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqPZdqqKjT4 fighting games]]. He also patterned much of his wrestling persona on anime and video game influences (such as the "Omega" part of his influences:
** ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'': His
ring name coming from is based on recurring ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' boss enemy Omega Weapon). Weapon, his primary finisher is named the "One-Winged Angel" after Sephiroth's {{Leitmotif}}, and his current theme ("Devil's Sky) was heavily inspired by it as well.
** ''Franchise/StreetFighter'': One of his current signature moves is called the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterV V-Trigger]], he shouts Alex's "You can't escape!" taunt during matches, he previously imitated the Hadouken gesture and modified it as a dual palm strike as a signature move, once performed Zangief's Ultimate Atomic Buster on a blow-up doll, copied Cody's Bad Stone throw with a crumpled paper ball, once paraphrased one of Bison's speeches [[Film/StreetFighter from the movie]], and he can play the game on a competitive level in addition to being a really good commentator.
This came to a head at CEO 2016 as not only did Kenny participate in the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' Street Fighter V tournament but fellow gamer Xavier Woods dropped in as well (being a Florida local) and the two took to the main stage [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxb5BuecXoc to do battle]].battle]].
** ''Franchise/MegaMan'': His Twitter handle references ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', his previous entrance track was a remix of the first Wily Castle theme from ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'', two of his previous signature moves were named the "Dr. Wily Bomb" and "Flash Man's Time Stopper".
** ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'': His habit of wearing a black longcoat in addition to shades references series BigBad Albert Wesker.
** ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'': Not reflected in his moveset or gimmick, but he learned Japanese just to read ''Ippo'' raw and now speaks the language fluently.

** This has taken on a life of its own as Xavier's stable with Wrestling/BigELangston and Wrestling/KofiKingston, "The New Day", has all sorts of nerdy in-jokes going for it (such as coming out dressed in [[Anime/DragonBallZ Saiyan armor]]). They also seem to nod to the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "Brony"]] fandom through their use of unicorn references (as Woods has been seen out of the ring wearing Brony merch).
