"I've always been a supporter of Razer and their products, so joining their team is really exciting," said Omega. "To rise to the next level in wrestling or gaming, a true support system is needed, and that's where Team Razer comes in. Their top-quality devices and fashion-forward gear are the best on the market, and I'm proud to be working with a company whose motto is 'for gamers, by gamers' that is just as driven to win as I am."
