Is this as close we were going to get to a New Day vs. Elite feud? Hell may or may not have frozen over and WWE.com is heavily promoting a Kenny Omega news item.
Pro wrestling is everywhere but Street Fighter unites us all. Thanks to Street Fighter, we are now getting a Xavier Woods vs. Kenny Omega Street Fighter V team battle next Thursday (Jun. 14) at E3.
If you’ve been following closely, Omega and Woods have been feuding over who’s a better Street Fighter V player since 2016. They’ve met each of the last two years and are 1-1 in the series.
The beef boiled over on social media earlier in the week.
Love winding down with some of my own sick #SFV clips. The patience, the intelligence, the clutch. I work hard to wax my super diamonds. You think you can compete with a technician like this, @XavierWoodsPhD ?!?! Absolute mastery - it’s no wonder I beat Tokido. pic.twitter.com/yElx18xrjq— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) June 5, 2018
