The New Day and The Elite to Compete at This Week’s E3 Event
WWE recently announced The New Day will be facing off against The Elite in a special Street Fighter V team battle exhibition match during this week’s E3 event.
The announcement was initially made last week on Capcom’s official Twitter account for Street Fighter V with Xavier Woods challenging Kenny Omega to a Street Fighter V bout at E3. Unlike their previous encounter, Woods revealed this was not going to be a singles match but instead a team match featuring The New Day on Woods’ side. The Elite will be represented by Omega and The Young Bucks.
This team battle exhibition match will air live on June 14th at 1PM EST on Capcom’s official Twitch account.
Shane Helms Comments on NJPW’s Dominion 2018 Event
Shane Helms recently reflected on Twitter of his thoughts after viewing NJPW’s Dominion 2018 event.
NJPW Dominion was a prime example of Pro Wrestlers understanding who they are and what pro wrestling is, better than any writer ever could.
Sometimes you just gotta let the artists be artists.
