Xavier Woods pulled for a hosting gig on G4 TV’s 2021 reboot. #Creed4G4 trended throughout social media because of it. All that work paid off and Woods landed his G4 hosting job. Now we know what he’s going to be doing on the rebooted network.
The write-up from WWE noted that the new show hosted by Woods “will pit some of the biggest content creators in gaming against each other, playing some of the most popular video games to settle scores… with scores.”
Xavier Wood was more than happy to make this life-long dream come true as he hosts a G4 television show. Partnering with only makes it better for everyone involved.
“Getting a shot to be a G4 cast member is incredible and humbling in itself, and I couldn’t be more excited for the chance to have my own show,” said Woods. “Not only will I host, but I’ll also have a pivotal role to play as the top personalities in gaming try to settle their beef.”
“This partnership combines WWE’s sports-entertainment and G4’s competitive entertainment to bring a truly unique offering only these brands can offer,” said Brian Terwilliger, VP of Programming and Creative Strategy for G4. “The format of the show, along with WWE Superstar Xavier Woods AKA Austin Creed’s electric presence on-screen, will make it appealing for gamers, WWE fans, and those new to both as well.”
“Xavier Woods has become a household name for WWE fans and gamers alike, and he is the perfect fit to headline our new series with G4,” said Jayar Donlan, WWE Executive Vice President, Advanced Media. “From console and mobile games to WWE’s successful UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, WWE’s influence on gaming is stronger than ever, and having our own gaming series on G4 is the next step in the evolution of the company’s gaming strategy.”
This seems like a fun idea and we’re hoping it is a success. WWE getting exposure on G4 TV is also a great thing during a time when they treasure demographic numbers over actual viewership on most charts, especially when it comes to advertising.
