AEW x Street Fighter Collab. T-Shirts

  

From AEW Champion Kenny Omega's obsession with video games and naming one of his finishers "V-Trigger" after SFV's mechanic, and appearing in the Street Fighter V promo trailer as Mayor Cody Travers... to AEW fans in the audience well known for holding up video game-themed signs that frequently get airtime on TBS... Pro-wrestling's AEW already has roots deep in video game culture. AEW recently announced new Street Fighter collaboration t-shirts, pitting AEW talent against iconic SF characters. Even if you wouldn't be caught wearing one of these shirts in public, you still have to admit they put some good effort into them! Below are the newly announced t-shirt designs, featuring: Bryan Danielson Vs. Sagat, Darby Allen Vs. Dhalsim, and Britt Baker Vs. Chun-Li.

   
The collaboration t-shirts are available on ShopAEW.com until February 9th, 2022. 
 
The shirts are made by Nerds Clothing, who previously collaborated with Capcom for other Street Fighter and Mega Man merch. Each one is priced at $38 USD on ShopAEW.com. The Daniel Bryan x Dhalsim shirt comes in red, while the other two shirts (above) come in black. A mighty fine color scheme, I might add.

[UPDATE] Other AEW x Street Fighter shirt designs include Jon Moxley vs. Guile and Adam Cole Vs. Ryu, previously announced at New York Comic-Con '21.





 

For the record, CM Punk also has a shirt out, with him facing off against Shadaloo's Vega and Balrog. The man went 0-2 in his MMA career, and lost in an embarrassing fashion both times, but AEW / pro-wrestling fans still love him and will still buy his t-shirts. ♪ ♫ ♬  A cult of personality. . .
