Tekken Pro Calls Out Rival Team In Hype Video
Stephen "Speedkicks" Stafford has released a new video coming off his first place victory at the Tekken 7: Fated Retribution tournament held at Wizard World St. Louis this past weekend.
The video, titled "A Message To The Skies," is a callout to InTheSkies, one of the largest Tekken eSports teams, which features members such as Joey Fury, PLing, and Spero Gin. The intro features a Christopher Walken monologue from the film Poolhall Junkies (2002) and shows Speedkicks up against the ropes in various matches, only to turn it around at the halfway mark and put the beatdown on his ITS opponents. Even fellow Atlantan Hoa "Anakin" Luu is not exempt from the wrath of Speedkicks as he shares in getting thrashed along with ITS.
The video closes out by showing Speedkicks' current win record against ITS members, a staggering 13-2 acquired over several past events. Speedkicks also ends with a challenge, or perhaps a warning, to see him at Combo Breaker in May.
Tekken 7 is still over a month away from its console release, and already its scene is developing some of the most compelling rivalries in the FGC. With more big teams taking an interesting in Tekken 7, things are only going to get more heated after the game's release and as we close in on Evolution 2017.
