Xavier Woods Injured

During a live event Monday in Australia, many outlets were reporting that Xavier Woods was injured while working in a tag team match against The Revival. On Twitter, Woods confirmed that he is indeed injured. While an official statement on the exact injury and recovery timetable has yet to be released, Dave Meltzer is reporting that the chatter backstage is the injury is an Achilles tear that will require a significant amount of recovery.

Jason’s Take

Long term, it will be interesting to see what WWE does with The New Day now with the injury to Woods. Will we see the group split up ?

Cody Rhodes On AEW Ratings

AEW has been fairly successful in drawing ratings its first three weeks on TNT. Some have been critical in the loss of viewers each week, including Vince Russo. Cody Rhodes took to Twitter to discuss AEW’s ratings.

Jason’s Take

I’ve been pleasantly surprised with AEW so far. It’s a change of pace from WWE programing. Did Vince Russo expect they were going to draw 5 million people a week ?

Jason’s Take

Picturing Randy Orton in AEW just feels weird to me. I’ve always been of the opinion that Orton would be a lifer in WWE. However, with wrestling, anything is possible. This isn’t the first time Orton has posted anything in relation to AEW, so either he is stirring the pot, or has legit interest in jumping ship.

Shane McMahon To Return To WWE TV ?

During the first episode of SmackDown on FOX, Shane McMahon lost a lose leaves WWE match to Kevin Owens. Since then, it had been reported that Shane McMahon would no longer appear on WWE TV moving forward. During his Q&A portion of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer had the following to say on McMahon’s status:

“He’s got nothing right now. You’re never gone. It appears that he is not going to be on TV for a while.”

Jason’s Take

Once again, its hard to say never in pro wrestling. I wouldn’t be surprised if McMahon returns to WWE TV at some point.
