• Xavier Woods Reveals His New Finishing Move
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.”
At WrestleMania 38, Woods ad Kofi Kingston lost to Sheamus & Ridge Holland in a Tag Team match. However, this feud is not over.
On last night’s SmackDown, Butch (fka Pete Dunne in NXT) wrestled his first match on SmackDown as an official member of the WWE main roster and lost to Woods.
Woods used the Small Package to pin Butch, which is now his finishing move and he’s calling it ‘Backwoods’.
Below is what he posted on Twitter:
“Yes. I officially have added a new finishing maneuver to my repertoire. The small package is no more. The era of the BACKWOODS has begun. Everybody bout to get rolled up….”
