The Elite are coming for The New Day as Kenny Omega and Austin Creed's rivalry levels up

SuperLuchas on Twitter

As was correctly pointed out in the Honor Rising night two results post thread, we were only scratching the surface of the assault the Elite of the Bullet Club lobbed at WWE tag team champions The New Day on Sat., Feb 20 by posting a picture of IWGP Intercontinental champion Kenny Omega in an aqua unicorn shirt.

No, Omega's rivalry with UpUpDownDown host Austin Creed (aka Xavier Woods) may have been born on the gamer battlefield, but it's doing it's damnedest to bleed over into wrestling rings.

At the very least, it's made it onto the internet with clips of things that happened near wrestling rings. Like so:

Matt Jackson (he's the one repping NXT Women's champ Bayley in the bottom Tweet) tagged all three members of New Day when reTweeting his brother's video, so hopefully, a response is forthcoming.

And, who knows in the wacky cross-promotional world of 2016, maybe a Trios match could happen in the future. Perhaps on neutral ground in Boyle Heights?
