Nash's commentary shed light on Omega's versatility and unique wrestling style, creating waves of interest among fans and wrestling enthusiasts.
During the podcast, Nash referenced a unique match involving Kenny Omega, where Omega squared off against an 8-year-old Japanese girl. Nash didn't hold back his admiration, stating, "Has anybody seen the match that Kenny Omega had with an 8-year-old Japanese girl? I watched it last night, and some of that s–t looked stiff.
Kenny reminds me of Sean Waltman — where he can just have a match with anybody. I've always been a huge fan of Kenny's because of the fact that Kenny would even do that match. [It] was another notch in why he's my favorite [wrestler]." The comparison to Sean Waltman, known as X-Pac during his WWE tenure, adds depth to Nash's perspective.
The mention of Waltman invokes nostalgia among wrestling fans who remember his dynamic and high-flying wrestling style, which was groundbreaking during his era.
