When pro-wrestling and eSports cross over, it kinda feels like eating Cocoa Puffs with chocolate milk to us. Last year we got one of the best showdowns you could ever imagine when Kenny Omega and Xavier Woods went toe-to-toe in a Street Fighter V match for the ages, in which Omega eventually took home the win in their long-lasting feud as wrestlers who are avid gamers. The two ran into each other one year later to add a little fuel to the fire for when we see them face off again someday. (Hopefully, for another video on Up Up Down Down sometime soon!)

The two came to take part in the CEO 2017 Royal Rumble, and while the results were less than stellar for both men, it was awesome to see them return to compete in a new fighting game. You can watch both Kenny Omega and Xavier Wood’s matches in the video below, along with the final result of watching ShinBlade defeat one of the game’s producers, Katsuhiro Harada.
