• SmackDown Star Comments On WWE Changing His Name
After SmackDown Superstar Xavier Woods won the King Of The Ring tournament last year, WWE changed his name to “King Woods” and made the change on their website as well.
However, WWE is no longer calling him King Woods and he’s back to being Xavier Woods, and this change has been reflected on their website too.
Xavier posted the following about this:
“Call me King Woods, Call me Xavier Woods, Call me Austin Creed. May as well call me King Midas since everything I touch turns to gold 😉 and I look great in that picture, almost as good as in real life.”
Woods will team up with Kofi Kingston to face the team of Sheamus & Ridge Holland (accompanied by Butch) this Saturday at WrestleMania 38 – Night 1.
