The Twitteratti did not miss Kenny Omega's usage of the GTS on the latest episode of AEW Dynamite, prompting an outpouring of reactions on social media.
While many believed that the finisher was a tongue-in-cheek way for the Cleaner to taunt CM Punk, the former has seemingly made it clear that it was a tribute to his former tag-team partner, Kenta. Omega and Kenta had previously been stablemates in the faction, Bullet Club.
It should be noted that Kenta had previously been openly critical of CM Punk stealing his finisher. Furthermore, Kenta was not allowed to use the GTS for four years, due to Punk using it as his signature move.
With Kenny Omega recently opting to showcase the move on Dynamite, the wrestling world erupted with reactions to the segment on social media.

The former AEW World Champion recently broke his silence on the CM Punk controversy
Much to everyone's surprise, Kenny Omega recently brought up the topic of CM Punk's recent strained relationship with AEW.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, The Cleaner stated the following:
“There are things no one can talk about, so I’d encourage people to let it go,” Omega said. “It doesn’t change that we want a team effort in AEW. I don’t even mean implicitly myself and my opponent. It also means the referee, the fans, the people who set up the ring, everyone–even a technical error can ruin the memory of a match." (H/T: SportsIllustrated)
Kenny Omega further mentioned how he only wants the best for pro-wrestling and its future. He also stated that there is no information to be released about the incident.
With The Elite and Omega seemingly moving on from the unfortunate events at All Out, it remains to be seen what the future holds for them in Tony Khan's company.
