Xavier Woods has a torn Achilles tendon and will likely be out of action for 9-12 months, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
He suffered the injury at a house show on Monday in Sydney, Australia. The New Day was facing The Revival when Woods suddenly went down after apparently routinely planting his foot in the ring. The referee checked on him and immediately put up the “X” symbol, indicating a legit injury. Big E continued the match and The Revival eventually won.
