WWE's Xavier Woods (aka Austin Creed) and New Japan Pro Wrestling's Kenny Omega have a rivalry spanning multiple years now, but it's not your typical wrestling rivalry. They settle their arguments in the realm of video games.

These two superstar wrestlers have faced off the past two years at CEO in Street Fighter 5, Tekken 7 and Dance Dance Revolution leaving them at an even record for their fighting game matches with each sitting at 1-1.

Woods and Omega will be facing off once again in Street Fighter 5 at Capcom's E3 booth today, June 14th, at 1:00 p.m. with a bit of a twist. They will be settling the score with the help of some of their friends.

The title match today will be a team based battle with each wrestler bringing along two of their compatriots for a 3v3 Street Fighter 5 set. Xavier Woods is bringing along fellow New Day members Kofi Kingston and Big E while Kenny Omega has Nick and Matt Jackson from the Elite on his side.

The pair had been calling each other out on Twitter after Omega appeared as Cody in the live action portion of the characters' reveal trailer with Woods playing the voice on the phone. Capcom stepped in and offered the wrestlers a platform to settle their rivalry leading to a fun promotional style video setting up the match.

You can find what is sure to be an entertaining match in the Capcom Fighters stream embedded after the jump, and be sure to check out the title card below.
