Defeating former WWE Universal Champion, Finn Balor, Xavier Woods has become the 22nd King of the Ring in WWE history and the first black King of the Ring since Booker T 15 years ago.

Unfortunately, all of The New Day will not be together on the same brand moving forward as Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston were drafted to Friday Night SmackDown while Big E remains on Monday Night Raw.

For now, it is time to celebrate as Xavier Woods has reached the Mountaintop and now sits upon the throne.

All hail, King Xavier!
