Xavier Woods fulfills his dream of becoming WWE’s King of the Ring
The recently-concluded King of the Ring tournament was built around Xavier Woods’ quest to capture the prestigious King of the Ring crown.
Woods kicked off his run in the competition with an impressive victory over Ricochet in the first round. The New Day superstar advanced to the semi-finals, where he faced Jinder Mahal – who had previously beaten Kofi Kingston in the qualifying match.
Woods avenged Kingston’s defeat by beating Jinder Mahal and confirming his spot in the grand finals at Crown Jewel. The former tag team champion was rightly booked to go over Finn Balor at the Saudi Arabia show in a match that lasted almost 10 minutes.
Xavier Woods will now walk into next week’s SmackDown with his shiny crown, but will the deserving win also lead to a potential character change for the veteran star?
Could Xavier Woods be angling towards a massive heel turn? Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Ryan K. Boman wrote a brilliant piece in the aftermath of Woods’ monumental win and analyzed what’s next for the newly-crowned King of the Ring.
