The New Day’s Xavier Woods Gets Animated In A New Hip-Hop Song About Wrestling

Even though Xavier Woods has been on the shelf since last October with an Achilles injury that required surgery, the man hasn’t slowed down one bit. In between his ongoing physical therapy and rehab sessions, Woods has launched a brand new podcast called Feel The Power alongside his fellow New Day members Kofi Kingston and Big E, and over the weekend, he was the host of the Crunchyroll Anime Awards.

Can we get the guy to rap the New Day to the ring at WrestleMania this year, please?
