"I'm bad at picking 'greatest.' I like so many people for so many different reasons. My favorite tag team is probably Billy & Chuck, mainly for their matches against The Hardyz. As a fan, it was the first time I noticed 'these guys are huge and the Hardy Boyz are not huge, but the Hardy Boyz can still knock them down.' In my teen head, I'm like, 'this is how wrestling should be.' It shouldn't be like, 'I'm bigger than you so you can't knock me down.' Billy Gunn is way bigger than Jeff Hardy, but Jeff Hardy got this hot tag and he's tearing him up and [Billy] is bumping like crazy for him. In my head, it was like, 'this is where you put your ego aside and let's have this good match.' Those moments always pop me as a kid. I'm sure there are a billion other situations and tag teams that made people feel like this, but this is what it was for me. Any matches with the Dudleyz, the Hardyz, and Edge & Christian, those always popped off for me, but I like groups as well. I was really into 3 Count in WCW and I was into Elix Skipper (and Kid Romeo). Those were guys my size and on TV and they had their own tag division, and it was awesome," he said.

Woods remains a tag team staple in WWE, regularly teaming with Kofi Kingston on WWE Raw.
