A preview of the four-part series’ debut episode – Captain’s Challenge – is available in the top of this posting where viewers will meet Ricky “Pokchop” Walker Jr., who lead one of four five-player teams in the TEKKEN Team Takedown, as 20 of the game’s best American players competed for a $100,000 purse. The show will spotlight Pokchop’s life outside TEKKEN® 7, including as a father. Additionally, it will recap the best moments from the ELEAGUE stage as each of the four captains – including Pokchop, his Virtual Storm teammate Shaun “NYCFAB” Swain, Jeannail “Cuddle_Core” Carter and Hoa “Anakin” Luu – play a miniature tournament to determine seeding for the Takedown.
