E3 Showdown: The New Day Vs. The Elite


WWE’s The New Day (Xavier Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston) finally squared off against NJPW’s The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) at this year’s E3 in “Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition”.

WWE hyped the battle across social media and on its website throughout this week and the battle didn’t disappoint pro-wrestling fans. Things started going downhill for Omega (playing as Ibuki) early in the game but he came through and overtook Woods (playing as Cody). The score read 4-3 at that time. However, Woods made a quick comeback and the scoreboard was equal, 4-4. Finally, Omega went for the win with a vicious Knee Trigger to the face and sealed The New Day’s fate.

As per the stipulation, each member of the losing team was to eat a habanero pepper. Woods decided to eat all of the peppers by himself, but Omega joined the party. Pepper score: Woods 2, Omega 1.
