Xavier Woods injured himself, because you never know what can happen in a pro wrestling ring. This time King Xavier’s injury won’t keep him out of the ring for very long.

According to a report from Fightful Select, Xavier Woods is no longer on the inactive roster. He has been moved over to the active roster after several weeks on the sidelines.

This change for Woods was actually done last week, but he did not appear on SmackDown or in the Royal Rumble. We’ll have to see if his status changes tonight on the blue brand’s show.

Xavier Woods was no longer listed on WWE’s inactive list as of last week’s episode of Smackdown. However, he didn’t appear on the show, or at that weekend’s Royal Rumble, so we’re unsure of when he’ll actually return or if he’s actually been cleared.


It was further noted that Woods is on the active list internally, so he can appear. He stated that about 4 to 6 weeks of recovery time will be needed when he was injured in early January, and that time is wrapping up.

When Woods does return he will have even more company. Big E was moved over to SmackDown as his singles run has seemingly come to an end.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
