The rivalry between Kenny Omega and Xavier Woods has escalated to the point in which the dispute can only be settled in a “street fight.” And they’re not coming alone.
The clash pro wrestling fans thought they would never see will take place June 14 when ROH/NJPW stars The Elite (Omega and The Young Bucks) take on WWE stars New Day (Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston) in a Street Fighter V battle at the E3 2018 video game expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Gamer extraordinaires Omega and Woods have competed against each other twice before. At the annual CEO fighting game championships in 2016, Omega handily defeated Woods in Street Fighter V, but Woods prevailed in the rematch at the 2017 CEO event.
After Omega’s huge victory over Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Dominion on June 9, Woods congratulated Omega via Twitter but then vowed to run through him at E3 2018. Woods also intimated that Omega wouldn’t be able to find any friends to team up with him.
Omega responded by tweeting, “For you to assume that I wouldn’t find any friends for E3 is about as silly as your mid-card comedy act partners. Get ready for your first main event, boys.”
The time for talking is over. Let the games begin.
