Christian and Xavier Woods are best known as WWE Superstars, but they also spent time in TNA at the same time. This is actually where they first shared a locker room.
During The New Day: Feel The Power, Xavier Woods discussed meeting Captain Charisma for the first time. He called TNA “another place,” but the story he shared about his time in the TNA locker room showed the kind of expectations he had for himself outside of WWE.
“So, back in another life, when I was at another place, there was a group of us, you know, my-size guys, they would call us X-division. And so, just before a show, we were in the back and I’m feeling good because I’m, like, 20 years old, I’m in this wrestling organization, there are all these guys here, I’m so excited to learn from everybody. I’m thinking “what can I bring to the table?” and at this point, I’m like, lifting a lot, I’m doing cardio, I’m ab-ed up, I’m like cool, I’m gonna go out there, look great, I’m gonna get all these opportunities, it’s gonna be awesome, I’m gonna make all this money, it’s gonna be fantastic.”
Woods was trying to flex in the mirror and show off a bit. Then he met Christian for the first time and he had a very interesting interaction. Christian told Woods to let him know when his abs draw money. Those words of wisdom stuck with Woods to this day.
“I’m looking at my abs in the mirror, I’m trying to flex to show everybody I’ve got the best abs in the room. Christian walks up and he goes, “tell me when those draw you some money” and walks away, and proceeded to wrestle in the main event, and make a ton of money, and I got beat up by like seven people in a 10-way match or something like that.
Christian is now back with WWE and he is going to be wrestling from time to time as well. We will have to see how much action Christian gets into during this run with WWE, but Xavier Woods seems more than happy to mix it up with Christian if they can make it work out.
