The New Day Makes Hilarious Entrance at Wrestlemania 33 Dressed in Final Fantasy XIV Garb [UPDATED]
Wrestling and video games just collided at Wrestlemania 33.
Today, during the broadcast of Wrestlemania 33, something interesting and hilarious happened, courtesy of f Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods of The New Days.
The three wrestlers made an entrance dressed in costumes inspired by Final Fantasy XIV‘s upcoming expansion Stormblood, with Woods dressed as “derplander” monk appearing in the latest cinematic trailer, Big E coming in as a samurai, and Kingston as a red mage.

This cameo isn’t that surprising, considering that Woods is an avid Final Fantasy XIV player and Final Fantasy fan.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will release on June 20th exclusively for PC and PS4, with the PS3 version of the game getting discontinued. PS3 users are eligible to a free upgrade to the PS4 version, and you can find out how to get it here.
