WWE's Xavier Woods Says He'll Be Back In The Ring "Sooner Rather Than Later"

He's been on the shelf for 10 months...

Back on October 18, 2019, Xavier Woods teamed with Kofi Kingston against The Revival at a house show in Sydney, Australia. During a sequence with Dash Wilder, Woods dropped down after a Back Suplex attempt and suddenly collapsed to the mat. WWE later confirmed the eight-time tag team champion suffered an Achilles tendon injury and would be out of action for up to a year. 

Ten months later, Woods is still on the shelf but the UpUPDownDown host recently told D-Von on Table Talk he will be back in the ring "sooner rather than later."

The New Day member said: "I'm getting to the point where I'm feeling good. I can jump, I can run a little bit. It's not fully healed yet but I'll be right back at work we'll say sooner rather than later. I don't have a date yet."

Ahead of his eventual in-ring return, Woods will be returning to WWE TV in a non-wrestling capacity as the company announced he would be co-hosting Talking Smack alongside Kayla Braxton. He missed the debut episode, however, because WWE forgot to tell him he would be hosting the new series.
