Kenny Omega is racking up the challenges to his video game skills, agreeing to battle Xavier Woods in Tekken 8. As previously noted, Omega accepted a challenge from ONE Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson to a charity Street Fighter 6 match over AEW WrestleDream weekend. During his acceptance, Omega took a good-natured swipe at Woods, telling Johnson that “I can even put you in touch with @AustinCreedWins . You guys can bond over being losers, etc.”

The comment drew Woods’ attention and the WWE star replied:

“1 – You got lucky
2 – Yall are both trash
3 – Neither of yall are man enough to play me in @TEKKEN
4 – I’ve got the place we can settle all of this @UpUpDwnDwn”

Omega replied to Woods and agreed to the video game fight, as you can see below. No word on when it might happen, though it’s of course unlikely to happen on UpUpDownDown, which is associated with WWE.
