Speedkicks has a message for team InTheSkies (and Anakin)

Rivalries are what great sports are made of. We have a great one on our hands!

Great rivalries are what make any sport intriguing, worth watching, and spawns die-hard fans. They create some of the greatest triumphs, but also some of the greatest defeats. They make heroes and legends, but also make some escape to the shadows to be remembered no more.

Recently a rivalry has been brewing behind the scenes between one man and a team. The man? Stephen “Speedkicks” Stafford of Atlanta, GA (HZRDSGaming). The team? InTheSkies, currently one of the deepest Tekken teams in esports.

Speedkicks released a video just moments ago called “A Message to the Skies” where he puts InTheSkies on notice. The video shows him and friend Jaguar Jerry losing a few matches to some of the ITS members, but then it shows Speed coming back with a vengeance. He also shot a little message to his Tekken mentor and hometown friend Hoa “Anakin” Luu. Finally, at the end he reminds them of his record versus many of its players. It couldn’t been scripted any better.

Take a look.

In the heart of friendly and healthy competition, many (if not all) ITS team members have gladly accepted the challenge. They love the video! Several of them even went onto say that the video was, in so many words, “awesome.” This is how it should be. So no, there is no beef or anything like that. This is all for the love of the game!

The editing of the video is quite superb from start to finish as well. Nicely done. According to Jaguar Jerry, Deauhhan did the intro, and Speedkicks the rest.

Who will be giving their full attention to this Speed vs ITS rivalry? I know I will.

The next battle begins at Combo Breaker! Who will rise, and who will fall?

Stay tuned.
