Kenny Omega and Demetrious Johnson appear to be set for a Street Fighter 6 battle to benefit a charity. Johnson, who is the ONE Flyweight Champion, posted to Twitter on Thursday to challenge the AEW star to a battle within the game for charity at AEW WrestleDream, which is taking place on Johnson’s hometown of Seattle. Johnson wrote:

“Hey @KennyOmegamanX, I hear you’re pretty good at Street Fighter. How about you put your money where your mouth is and face ME at @AEW WrestleDream in my hometown of Seattle in a 1 v 1 battle in Street Fighter 6!

Loser donates to the charity of the winner’s choosing. You game?”

Omega retweeted the post and replied:

“Anyone’s free to insult my wrestling ability but this cockamamie idea that you’re better at Street Fighter than me?! That makes it personal. For charity, I’ll do it – Heck, I can even put you in touch with @AustinCreedWins . You guys can bond over being losers, etc.”
