Xavier Woods‘ desire to be the King of the Ring has been established in various interviews over the years. Now that WWE is officially bringing back the tournament, Woods could have the opportunity to turn his dream into a reality.
In a video shared on his Twitter page, Woods emphasized how the tournament is truly meaningful to hi, as it’s the reason he became a wrestler in the first place. He vowed to emerge victorious in the competition and wear the crown when it’s all said and done.
“You probably think that you understand what the King of the Ring means to me,” said Woods. “There’s no way for me to make you feel what I actually feel knowing that this tournament is coming back. This is the reason that I got into wrestling in the first place. This is the reason why at 17 years old, I took a job at a daycare to pay for wrestling school, to pay for gas to drive up and down the east coast wrestling four, five nights a week while still going to school. I was made for this tournament.
“The only reason that I would ever learn a skill or a craft is so that I could eventually be tested on it. So my purpose is this test. This test is King of the Ring. Me becoming king is inevitable. I speak my truth into existence every single time. And so when I wear that crown upon my head, the streets will be full of children throwing candy, singing my praises and they will all say, ‘Hail King Woods.”
