To kick things off, WWE Superstars and WrestleMania 33 hosts, Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods (members of the tag team trio “The New Day”) made a fantastic Final Fantasy XIV themed entrance. In a partnership between WWE and Square Enix, each wrestler dressed up as character from the popular MMORPG. Big E was dressed as the Samurai, Xavier Woods as the Monk, and Kofi Kingston as the Red Mage. Kofi rode in on a “POP-cycle” adorned with images and plushies of fan-favorites Chocobos and Moogles.
WWE worked in collaboration with Square Enix to produce the entrance. It is the first time that WWE has worked with a game studio to promote a game and have that game be a part of such a massive event like WrestleMania.
The next Final Fantasy XIV expansion, Stormblood, will be released on June 20th. Fans can go to www.ffxiv-freetrial.com/wwe to sign up for a free trial of the Final Fantasy XIV online game.
You can watch the entrance below and there will be more behind-the-scenes content available in the coming months.
Personally, I feel like the entrance could have used the Final Fantasy theme, more chocobos, and more moogles, but I’m biased. Kupo!
