Woods explained that their love of pancakes has nothing to do with century-old literature and is a reference to a Lumberjack Match they participated in back in late 2017.
“I said, ‘Well if I’m a lumberjack, what do they eat? They eat flapjacks.’ It was hilarious. So, we said the next week, ‘Are we going to do pancakes? Yeah, sure. Why not?’ And that’s where the pancakes came from.”
“If there’s ever any source of contention or anything like that, I think that it’s a situation where you should take a look at yourself and think about how deep you are looking into something that’s not really there.”
Woods notes that he and partners Big E and Kofi Kingston are “very aware of how we present ourselves,” but they don’t want their wacky antics dissected under a racial lens, “simply because we are African-American males.”
“All we want is a blank slate. And if people continue to refuse to give us one, then they’re doing nothing more than continuing to hold up the social constructs that we’re trying to break down.”
