It’s a gig. Wrestlers are in a weird place when it comes to celebrity status. They are indeed famous, but they are famous for one thing and one thing only. Wrestling has a pretty firm ceiling for the majority of wrestlers around the world, but every now and then you see someone break though in another area. That very well may be the case again for a current Monday Night Raw star.
There have been very few wrestlers to become bigger stars in the last several years than the New Day. The trio has all found incredible success in WWE, winning more titles than they could have imagined. While the three of them have been split into two and one thanks to the WWE Draft, everyone’s career seems to be set. Now, one of them is going to be trying to do something else outside of the company.
WWE has announced that Xavier Woods will be hosting a new video game competition series on G4 when the network returns this fall. Woods has previously been announced as a new host for the returning G4, largely due to his work with the UpUpDownDown YouTube channel. There are no more details on the series, including the name or any other wrestlers participating.
For the past few years my focus has been on trying to create avenues for wrestlers to show we are more than just wrestlers. After we obliterate our bodies it’s sometimes a shock/scary to figure out that next chapter of life. For me it’s video games. @G4TV LETS GOOOOOOO https://t.co/7A0GrTcPw2

Woods can do a lot of great things in a few areas. Check out a little bit of everything:
Opinion: The first thing I can think of here is good for Woods. It takes a lot of work to reach this point and it should be a lot of fun when we finally see this series released. I’m not sure how many other wrestlers are going to be included, but WWE has a decent record getting into something like this. A lot of wrestlers are already part of Woods’ YouTube channel, so let him see what he can do on a bigger stage.
