VIDEO: The New Day vs. The Elite in Street Fighter V battle


Though it wasn't in the ring, wrestlers from WWE and NJPW faced off at E3 this afternoon.

The New Day played The Elite in a team battle on Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, with New Day winning 2-1. Kofi Kingston defeated Nick Jackson and Xavier Woods defeated Matt Jackson, while Kenny Omega defeated Big E.

Woods and Omega, who are friends and both avid gamers, were originally announced as facing each other before their partners were added. New Day having Big E go against Omega then led to Woods vs. Omega, which was part of a bet where the loser's team was supposed to eat habanero peppers. Omega won that 5-4.

After the "rivalry" between the teams was played up all broadcast, Woods called it a day they've been working towards for the past three years. Omega said he and Woods set out on a path to bring the worlds of pro wrestling and video games together. He said they shouldn't be against each other and should work towards a common goal -- and this competition between people from two different companies was the result. Both Woods and Omega referred to it as step one.
