WWE promoting The Young Bucks'?
It is well known that The New Day's Xavier Woods and the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega are good friends but the two men have a competitive feud with one another over who is the best gamer. It was recently announced that both Omega and Woods were going to truly find out who the better gamer between the two is at 'E3 2018' (Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018) in Los Angeles.
Xavier Woods shared that his New Day brethren Big E and Kofi Kingston will be by his side at 'E3' as he battles Kenny Omega in a 'Street Fighter' session. "The Cleaner" then matched Xavier Woods as the newly crowned IWGP Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks stated in a video on their 'Being The Elite' YouTube channel that they will be in Omega's corner as he faces off against Xavier Woods. WWE.com recently published an article on the showdown between Xavier Woods and Kenny Omega but they have updated that article with the recent additions of remaining New Day members and The Young Bucks.
WWE and The Young Bucks have not seen eye to eye dating back to last year when the Bucks' were sent a cease and desist letter from the company which prevented the Bucks' from doing the "too sweet" hand gesture and in-turn Matt & Nick had to recreate the majority of their merchandise and ring gear that had the gesture on it. Nonetheless WWE is promoting the 'E3 2018' showdown between the two parties this upcoming Thursday. Below is the article published on WWE.com:
"The six-man tag team showdown you’ve been dreaming of is happening this Thursday.
The New Day will collide with The Elite – Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks – in a Street Fighter V showdown at the Capcom booth during the E3 video game conference in Los Angeles.
Xavier Woods and Omega had been going back and forth over social media in recent weeks over who was the better Street Fighter player, to the point where Capcom, the makers of the legendary fighting game series, had to intervene and set up a battle for supremacy to bring the bickering to a definitive end.
During a contract signing broadcast on the Street Fighter Twitter account, “The Cleaner” made the bold statement that he could beat Woods and any of his friends in the game. Woods pounced on that claim, saying he’d bring backup, while doubting that Omega would be able to find two teammates. Woods quickly enlisted the help of his fellow New Day members Kofi Kingston and Big E for this battle in The City of Angels.
However, despite Woods’ doubts, it was then revealed via a YouTube video that Omega's partners would be IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks. Nick & Matt Jackson will join Omega, their running mate in The Elite, setting the stage for a battle that many sports-entertainment fans thought would never happen.
What will happen when these trios meet for what is sure to be an explosive video game battle? Will Omega, the self-proclaimed “Best Bout Machine,” unleash the V-Trigger on his way to a six-star Street Fighter classic before saying goodbye and goodnight to his rivals? Will The Young Bucks make Ken and Ryu put on a virtual superkick party? Or will The New Day serve up a heaping helping of humble pancakes to their rivals and prove that though Omega & The Bucks may be elite in the ring, when it comes to Street Fighter, they’re just booty? Find out this Thursday at 4 ET/1 PT, and be sure to tune in to UpUpDownDown during E3 for the latest on games being shown off at the conference!"
The showdown and gaming session will take place this Thursday and 'E3' will be streamed live on Twitch TV.
