New Day member Xavier Woods has confirmed he suffered an injury during a recent Australian WWE Live Event. Reports came out after Woods crumpled to the mat during a tag team matchup against The Revival. His partner, Big E, would eventually turn the match into a 2-on-1 handicap match.
Taking to Twitter, Woods stated:
“Mans is injured. I’ll keep yall updated but as of right now I’m gonna stream a lot. Gonna hit cons a lot. Gonna post sponsored tweets a lot. Gonna eat pizza a lot. So many things to do! 1st cosplay coming next Saturday, I’m already laughing about it”
Fans in attendance were concerned that Woods had injured his ankle. Reports soon followed, speculating that it was sadly a more serious Achilles Tendon injury. Woods previously uploaded a GIF to Twitter explaining how an Achilles injury can occur. At the time of writing, there is no indication as to how long Woods may be out of action for.
The New Day is scheduled to compete in the nine-team World Cup Turmoil matchup at WWE Crown Jewel at the end of the month. With this injury, the stable will now be represented by Big E and former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston.
WWE Crown Jewel takes place on October 31st from the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
