Xavier Woods Campaigns For Roman Reigns Match Due To Ending His Winning Streak

Reigns couldn't beat Woods when they met 18 months ago

Xavier Woods believes he deserves a shot at Roman Reigns. 

While The Tribal Chief hasn't been pinned or made to submit since a loss to Baron Corbin at TLC 2019, he wasn't able to put the New Day member away when the two met on the November 12, 2021 episode of SmackDown (as the match went to a No Contest). 

Speaking with WhatCulture's Simon Miller, Woods made his case for a rematch with Reigns, saying: 

"The fact that I won King of the Ring by defeating a former Intercontinental Champion in Ricochet, a former Heavyweight Champion in Jinder Mahal, the first-ever Unievrsal Champion in Finn Balor, and then going on to defeat each of the Usos in singles competition, and then be the only man - sorry, Seth Rollins, we'll talk about that one but not mine - I'm the first man to break Roman Reigns' two-year winning streak. People don't talk about it, why? Tell me why. I don't understand whhhyyyyy we don't talk about this! I've been killing it. Next year is 20 years in the game".

At that point, Shelton Benjamin interrupted the interview with: 

"I just have to interject. We're talking about the fact that you beat Roman Reigns, right? We can't allow that. I've been sent in to have you cease and desist. This interview will end if you keep talking about that particular match where you beat Roman Reigns. You're to have to stop talking about that. We can't talk about you beating Roman Reigns, under no circumstances".

Who's stonewalling this investigation?
