Professional wrestling is weird. Frequently, that means that it’s weirdly awesome
, but it’s still weird. Case in point, you probably would not have expected Final Fantasy XIV
to team up for cross-promotion with professional wrestling. And yet that’s exactly what happened during the most recent Wrestlemania event, with WWE’s New Day showing up in costumes inspired by the Monk, Samurai, and Red Mage jobs
There seems to be a fair amount of crossover between the two fandoms, so it makes a certain amount of sense as a cross-promotional deal, and it’s also the sort of “what” that is at once baffling and really cool. You can check out the video down below, or you can just go on your favorite forum to use this as evidence that Monks will be able to suplex people in Stormblood. You’ll find out for sure in a couple of months.
