Pro Gamer Does ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin Entrance at Tournament
Spectacle, pageantry and eSports collided during CEO 2015, when a couple fighting game pros used wrestling-themed entrances.
CEO 2015 took place this past weekend and featured a variety of tournaments. Fighting game pros and enthusiasts from all over the world came to Orlando, FL, as the event featured tournaments of Ultra Street Fighter IV, Super Smash Bros., Mortal Kombat X, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear Xrd, Persona 4: Arena Ultimax, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and more. Fans had a blast at the event, which featured some awesome, wrestling-themed entrances reminiscent of WWE back in its prime.
The video above features Kenneth "K-Brad" Bradley mimicking the entrance and persona of WWE's "Stone Cold" Steve Austin to hit the eSports ring for his match of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Once Austin's music kicked off with the sound of glass shattering, we knew we were in for something special. Bradley even climbed up the corner, raised his fists to the crowd, caught some energy drinks and chugged them like Austin would with beers back in WWE's prime during the late '90s. Bradley didn't win the match, but he still ended the night on a good note... with a Stone Cold Stunner.
Lastly, we have Kevin "Dieminion" Langdon with another epic entrance:
We loved these entrances and hope that more tournament organizers, players and spectators just have fun at their events just as everyone did during CEO 2015. Anyone who would like to see the event's results can check them out at EventHubs.
