Newly crowned IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega has released a statement on his official Twitter account apologizing for "leaked" private images of himself which are circulating the internet. It should be noted that while there are personal images of the NJPW star online, they were intentionally put out by Omega as part of an ongoing joke. The statement he tweeted reads as follows:
"I would like to apologize to all BTE fans, my family, and friends for private DM's that were distributed without my consent. #BeingTheElite"
Look familiar?, well it's because it's pretty much a word for word copy of the one WWE Superstar Seth Rollins put out when he had real-life personal images of himself leaked by his ex-girlfriend. The photos Omega released were a mock and in the same poses as Rollins.
For those who don't get it, we encourage you to watch all the episodes of "Being The Elite" to understand. The long and short of it is, Kenny Omega sent The Young Bucks a shocking personal message via Twitter a few months ago and The Bucks said once The Elite reaches 100k that they would reveal what was sent to them. Around this time Rollins stole Kenny Omegas V-Trigger move, so this is a rib back at Seth Rollins by recreating or "stealing" poses from his personal photo leak.
I would like to apologize to all BTE fans, my family, and friends for private DM's that were distributed without my consent. #BeingTheElite— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) July 4, 2017
