New Day will keep rocking according to Woods.
Last week on SmackDown Live, The New Day defeated The Bludgeon Brothers in a No-DQ match for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships in the main event of the show. After being pummeled by Harper and Rowan for a great portion of the match, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods managed to fight back and that resiliency earned them their fifth WWE Tag Team Titles victory.
As the group has now been together for four years, fans of the product have wondered if the trio will ever split and go their own separate ways. Each member of New Day have addressed that very topic in various interviews throughout the years. Xavier Woods was the latest to address the idea and he minced no words when stating that one of New Day's members turning on the others is something that is in no way shape or form happening.
"I don't remember a group in wrestling that hasn't turned on itself," said Woods while speaking with GiveMeSports' Alex McCarthy. "Or they'll turn and then come back and be a group again. New Day, I'm telling you this right now, New Day will never turn, ever, and that's because we have zero desire to ever do that. I have no desire to go to work and not work with my friends. Because like you said, people say on Twitter 'Oh, New Day's doing this, Big E's going to turn and this is happening' or 'Woods is the snarky one, he's going to turn', or 'Kofi's been at the top of the mountain before, he's going to turn'. Why? We're having the most fun we've ever had in our careers. It's not like anyone's said, 'I need to sabotage my friends to be champ' - what is it to be champ when you're champ by yourself? If you're standing up there alone in this cold, mountainous castle, that's not fun." Woods argued. "I want to be up there with my friends - and then especially, if Kofi wins the Heavyweight title, I'm also Heavyweight Champion because we have the New Day rule. So, just basic mathematics. We have a better way of becoming Heavyweight Champion if we stay a group and we just share it. There's your answer, internet. We will all retire before we turn, and this is not, 'Oh he's saying this because it's happening.' My government name is Austin Watson. Austin Watson is telling you: that is the truth."
On top of being a SmackDown Tag Team Champion, Xavier Woods has also earned himself a Guinness world record for his 'UpUpDownDown' YouTube gaming channel that has hit the 1.6 million subscriber mark.
