I think this is intentional. They're building a long term story with Omega. At some point will we have a Omega got his mojo back
moment that will pay it off. Presently, I believe he's trying to portray someone who is conflicted about leaving New Japan and finding it difficult to fit in with a new company (which may also be true). We'll likely see a catalyzing moment that causes Omega's mindset to change. Hell, he's talked about this in promos and the commentary team has also discussed his relatively mediocre performance thus far on several occasions, a clear signal that this is intentional.
I mean, the Undertale video?
It's pretty clear! Omega left his best friend in New Japan and now he's not sure if he made the right decision, which is keeping him from performing at the highest level. Pretty relatable stuff, really. When we make a big change in our lives, we're never totally sure if it's the correct decision. Doubts and regrets pile on and it may cause a performer to lose focus for long enough to cost them a match, which makes things worse.
I think we'll see a payoff for Omega that will make his slow start make sense. You can quote me on that!
