The relationship between Twitch and the fighting game community has always been a close one. With one of the earliest emotes being the Gootecks-inspired PogChamp, another one was about to make a rise to prominence.
The Jebaited emote has become a fixture in nearly every FGC stream, even making its way out of our own little circle of events. But few who use the emote know the lore behind its creation, or even the fact that the current state of the emote is a revision of the original emote.
As explained by theScore and the man behind the face, CEO tournament organizer Alex Jebailey, the emote itself stems from not only fighting games, but his storied history and love for professional wrestling.
