This past weekend, alongside the New York Comic Con, IGN held their first ever WWE x IGN eSports Showdown. The event saw a number of WWE Superstars compete in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

The main event was a 4 man tournament featuring the Phenomenal AJ Styles, the Swiss Cyborg Cesaro, Kofi Kingston, and the fighting general manager Xavier Woods. In addition to this, a grudge match also took place between 2 former WWE Raw Woman’s Champions, the BOSS Sasha Banks, and Bayley.

What’s interesting about the latter is the fact that it was a tag team match with both the Boss and Bayley bringing in actual professional fighting game players. In Sasha’s corner, she brought in F3 Flipside Tactics’ Hollywood Sleep. Bayley on the other hand stacked the deck in her favor by bringing in fellow NorCal resident, Splyce’s Filipino Champ.

For those who missed it, you can check out the entire event in the video below.
