« CEO 2018 to feature crossover event with New Japan Pro-Wrestling »

In the last few years, pro wrestling and fighting games have converged on many stages, from WWE stars playing Tekken at Wizard World events to Kenny Omega and Austin Creed participating in events such as CEO and Final Round.

CEO 2018, however, will be raising the bar as it has announced a "crossover event" between the tournament and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

New Japan is the current home promotion of Kenny Omega and is the number two professional wrestling company in the world behind WWE. While the company is based in and runs events almost exclusively in Japan, it has started expanding outward in recent years with shows in Long Beach, California, and other countries such as Australia. It has also collaborated with the Ring of Honor promotion in the United States on multiple occasions.

According to CEO founder Alex Jebailey, "#CEOxNJPW is a live wrestling event at the Ocean Center on Friday June 29th" with more information and ticket sales beginning in April 2018. Readers can follow CEO Gaming on Twitter for more updates as they are released.

CEO 2018 takes place from June 29 to July 1, 2018, in Daytona Beach, Florida.
