While E3 2018 showcased the next top games in the upcoming months, one WWE Superstar was on a mission.
E3 Fortnite Celebrity Tournament
Xavier Woods, member of The New Day and host of UpUpDownDown, leaped into battle for the first-ever Fortnite Pro-Am Tournament before leaving with $10,000 for Connor’s Cure. The 50-team Pro-Am was held in Los Angeles during the 2018 E3 convention and featured some of the world’s best Fortnite players teaming with celebrities of television, film, music, and sports alike for their share of $3 million prize pool for charity.
Woods was competing against the likes of Chandler Riggs of “The Walking Dead,” UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Tyron Woodley, rapper Lil Yachty, NBA players Paul George and Kenneth Faried and many more.
Woods teamed with streamer CDNThe3rd, and the two outlasted more than half the competitors, coming in 24th place out of 50 teams. They each left with $10,000 for the charity of their choice, with Woods playing for Connor’s Cure, which supports research in the battle against pediatric cancer.
