Xavier Woods & The New Day Are Appearing In Gears 5

You thought Batista in Gears 5 isn’t enough rasslin’ for you? Try adding in The New Day.

According to Xbox, the WWE three-man team The New Day will be featured as DLC characters in Gears 5. These include legend Kofi Kingston, Big E, and the guy whose ass I kicked in Tekken 3, Xavier Woods*.

Obviously the latter is overjoyed at being a character in Gears 5. Who wouldn’t?

“After playing [Gears of War] for years (& reading the books) I’m happy to announce that myself[, Kofi Kingston, & Big E] somehow convinced them to make us playable DLC characters in [Gears 5,]. If you thought getting popped by gnashers got on your nerves, wait until [it’s] us doing it[!]”

In addition to that, Gears 5’s latest season, Operation 5, features battles from Gears 2 and Gears 3, the addition of characters like Dizzy Wallin and Skorge, a new Imulsion-themed map called Nexus, and the old weapon Scorcher making a return.

Check out the fun vids we did with one-third of the New Day.

*obviously a lie; it was a draw.
