After 12 teams did the Lord's work by making their way to the top, in the end it was the London Spitfire's win over the Philadelphia Fusion that cemented the Overwatch League's Inaugural Season.
As one Triple H fan already pointed out, it would be amazing to see Blizzard incorporate WWE skins into their popular FPS. It makes you wonder though ... which wrestler would be represent the individual heroes in Overwatch? Big Show and Jericho as Roadhog and Junkrat was one popular nomination, we've got Cien Almas and Zelina Vega as Reaper and Sombra as another ...
