That isn’t one you hear very often. There are a lot of stories about how hard life can be on the road for professional wrestlers, especially in WWE. You will hear about wrestlers having to be on the road for 300 days a year with very little time off and it can be incredibly difficult for everyone involved. Things have gotten a bit better, but time off is still precious. One current WWE star had a very unique reason for wanting time away.
SmackDown’s King Woods has posted a tweet revealing that he has requested time off from WWE to attend and cover a Golden Girls convention in Chicago from April 22-24. The convention is the first of its kind, though there is no word on if Woods has been given the time off. Woods is currently the reigning King of the Ring and has been feuding with the Bloodline.

Talk about worlds colliding. Check out some of Woods, plus a Golden Girl in WWE:
Opinion: Sure why not. This is one of those things that you probably did not expect to hear today but it is the kind of thing that certainly catches your eye. I could go for Woods’ coverage of such a convention, as his reactions alone could be worth a look. Odds are this isn’t going to be approved, but it would make for some entertaining television, which might be a better option at the moment.
What do you think of the idea? Should Woods get the time off? Let us know in the comments below.
