The majority of the WWE Friday Night Smackdown roster is in Sydney, Australia for a string of tour dates. As most wrestler’s schedules go, the more you work the more you may be prone to injury. That is the gist of what occurred to one of WWE’s beloved superstars.
During Xavier Woods’ match against The Revival, the UpUpDwnDwn host was thrown into the ropes and immediately fell down after with an injury. The ref during the match threw up the “X” signaling for the trainers to come out. Based on live fan accounts, Woods was clutching his leg during the ordeal.

After the event, Xavier went to Twitter to confirm the injury. Medical history states Achilles injuries usually take 6 months to heal a tendon based on the person and the forms of rehab.

The time away will be essential for both Kofi Kingston and Big E who will assume the role of a tag team going forward for The New Day but Xavier, whose usually the strongest mouthpiece for the faction, will be felt for a while.
From all of us here at Pro Wrestling Post, we wish Xavier Woods a speedy recovery.
Xavier Woods has been one of the most solid workers in WWE for quite some time and the injury hurts. A true company man, Woods has been predominately featured throughout WWE programming. He is featured via commercials and advertisements and of course, his YouTube channel.
On the wrestling aspect, this may be a significant hit to The New Day. Kofi will easily take his place in the team with Big E. We can only expect the former WWE Champion to be trusted back in the WWE title picture. This could be before Survivor Series on November 24th. It’ll be interesting to see where WWE goes next with the popular group going forward.
