Speedkicks wins the Tekken 7FR championship at Wizard World Chicago in cruise control
Tekken Tour stop at Wizard World Chicago just ended and the outcome turned out how most expected. The favorite to win the event was Speedkicks of Circa eSports, and he pretty much moon-walked his way into grand finals where he made light-work of his opponent Weapon X.
Speedkicks originally was going to attend Summer Jam X, another Tekken Tour event this weekend that ended up not happening, but his team convinced him to attend Wizard World. Upon hearing what occurred with SJX, Speedkicks tweeted that he “dodged a bullet.”
