Xavier Woods Speaks On The New Day’s Gimmick, WrestleMania 32, Being The Longest Reigning WWE Tag Team Champions

WWE Superstar Xavier Woods spoke with Phoenix Times about various topics. Here are the highlights.

On being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in history:

The longest combined reign was [Paul] London and [Brian] Kendrick and we beat it. We crushed it into the ground. So we are number one.

On The New Day’s gimmick:

Uh … this word “gimmick” that you keep on using, I’m not sure what that is. When I go out on TV, I’m just myself, and I feel like my personality isn’t really any sort of gimmick the way that people might use the word. What we do, when our music hits, we go out and we just hang out with each other. We’re friends and that’s what we’re about, being friends and making sure that we have a good time. We’ve just been lucky enough that other people think that us having fun is funny.

On whose idea it was to dress up like Dragon Ball Z at WrestleMania 32:

The Dragon Ball Z-inspired gear was my idea, because I was thinking about some things and felt that I needed to dress up as Vegeta at some point in my life on the show and the largest WrestleMania ever seemed like the place to do it. And Kofi is a Dragon Ball Z fan as well and we’re breaking E into it, so we all sat down and we agreed that this was the best route to go. And then it actually happened and it kind of blew my mind.
