Arslan Ash of Pakistan has won #TAKKEN7 competition at #EVO2019 held at Las Vegas. EVO is the most prestigious & biggest Egaming fighting tournament in the world.
Arslan “Arslan Ash” Siddique steamrolled his competition to win Tekken 7 at Evo 2019. The Pakistani competitor has been on an absolute tear since his surprise victory at Evo Japan, and this latest championship ties a nice little bow on his burgeoning Tekken career.
Arslan is the big example of what a Tekken Prime God looks like IRL. Crushing it as soon as he entered the scene, not to mention crushing Knee whenever they face off in-tournament. Extremely happy that he won Evo, and looking forward to everything he does next.
Arslan Ash caused quite a stir in Fukuoka at the EVO 2019 in February. The newbie knocked out a seasoned champion and took home the trophy.
8 Players , 4 Countries, 1 Champion.

I’m being pretty serious. I know that a lot of players repeat at majors all the time like Chris G and Punk. However, just winning a single Evo is nigh impossible. Few people have even been able to win them consecutively (Daigo, Infiltration). Heck, I don’t think Filipino Champ managed to win Evo twice in a row for MVC3. That in combination with the sheer number of entrants in Evo and Evo J compared to most majors makes me think that we’re not going to see too many people make that Cross-Pacific Repeat too soon.
Still, it’s not something I’d bet my life on, just a feeling I have watching Evos since they were first being streamed.
