WWE and Street Fighter Collide as Brock Lesnar Destroys a Car
Brock Lesnar destroyed a car on WWE's Monday Night Raw, and some talented YouTuber added sound and visual effects from Street Fighter II's bonus stage to it.
Sleepy Bear Gaming Studio (courtesy of Kotaku) posted a video that splices together footage from this week's episode of Monday Night Raw with the overlaying visuals and classic sounds from Street Fighter II's car bonus stage. Both the bonus stage and the segment from Raw feature a muscular individual beating up a luxury vehicle until it was ruined. The only difference is that Ryu, Ken, Blanka and the gang were able to beat up the car with their bare hands, whereas former UFC and WWE champion Brock Lesnar, as muscular and beastly as he is, had to use an axe. Nevertheless, it's awesome to see and hear those nostalgic sights and sounds as Lesnar beat up on the car Seth Rollins awarded to his friends for helping him beat up Brock a few weeks prior. Despite wrestling being scripted and very cheesy at times, it's great to see some Street Fighter thrown into the mix.
BillNevilleNAI was in the crowd that night. Apparently, some kid watching got annihilated by a part of the car door Lesnar threw. It's alright — he was a Cena fan. Luckily, it was the padded part and not the metal parts. All kidding aside, WWE released a statement about the incident, saying that youngster's parents declined sending him out for medical attention and said he was alright.
In WWE-related news, Stone Cold Steve Austin was recently revealed as the WWE 2K16 cover athlete (as opposed to Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns, Owens, Cesaro, Neville, Ryback, Ziggler, Wyatt or anyone else on the current roster who could've used the attention). WWE 2K16 will launch on Oct. 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We have also heard that WWE 2K16 will feature over 120+ wrestlers on its initial roster, which is significantly higher than last year's (around 70).
For the sake of reference, here's a video of the original Street Fighter II bonus stage.
Here's a couple other clips of people recreating the bonus stage in real life:
