Who is Xavier Woods?



By Scott Fishman

Given his namedrop on Raw and for John "Bradshaw" Layfield's sake, I thought now is a good time to introduce Xavier Woods.

Even though Woods is 27, he has been wrestling for more than eight years. His love of Rocky was evident, performing under the name of Consequences Creed. He patterned his in-ring persona after Apollo Creed, even wearing the red, white and blue.

One reason Woods is one of my favorites is we both share a mutual love of Power Rangers. I even ran into him in July at the Florida Supercon in Miami.

Woods came, dressed as the black ranger, in hopes of meeting Walter Jones, who portrayed Zack on the show. He uses the Power Rangers phrase ,"It's morphin time!" during appearances. It's just another way he can relate to much of the WWE audience.

Woods' exciting in-ring style reminds me a lot of Kofi Kingston. Even though he had a solid foundation of the business and traveled all over honing his skills, he continues to learn in WWE's developmental system.

The last three years Woods has developed a name for himself and turned heads with his athletic ability and charismatic personality. The young star was recognized publicly by WWE during the opening of its Performance Center this year as a success story.

Woods even had the huge honor of telling his story during the press conference. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in educational psychology, while still wrestling on a regular basis. The future WWE superstar will serve as a great role model for people out there to finish school and achieve their dreams.

Woods was revealed as the man behind a petition for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to "hire" the Big Show back. This will not be the last time his name comes up on WWE programming.

There is no doubt Woods has all the tools to make it to the main roster. I think we will see the soon-to-be Dr. Woods on Raw and SmackDown in the very near future. Then, JBL can get a acquainted with the company's newest breakout star.
