Five-time World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) tag team champion Xavier Woods aired out his grievances regarding fans who criticize pro-wrestling.
“When people talk about the difference between the organizations – not even organizations – between like NXT and the main roster. So when they say like, ‘Oh man! Takeover killed it. SummerSlam, this is gonna suck!’” Woods said during a press conference at Shari La Hotel, in Bonifacio Global City, the Philippines. “It’s on the same company. What is there to complain about?”
Woods said it “blows his mind” whenever people complain about pro-wrestling shows they dislike.
Last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw drew flak from wrestling fans, many of which took to social media to call out the show’s “uninspired” booking.
Tonight was the worst Monday Night #Raw I've ever seen. Don't know that I've ever been this frustrated watching this show. I wasn't waiting for Sunday to let my thoughts fly on this one, so here's my Sound Off Extra on it. Enjoy. https://t.co/j0ym5xl8c1

But for Woods, viewers shouldn’t be too upset because there are so many wrestling shows that could give them whatever they are looking for in their entertainment.
“You just got an awesome wrestling show on Saturday night, you just had an awesome wrestling show on Sunday, then you’re gonna watch Raw on Monday, and SmackDown on Tuesday, then NXT,” said the New Day member. “What are you complaining about?”
“And then like, you can watch New Japan. You can watch Triple A. You can watch so much wrestling from all corners of the world. And it’s all awesome and it’s all good. It’s all different guys and girls portraying their form of art that they love – that they wanna give to you.”
Woods revealed that as a performer, it’s painful for him be criticized when he gives it his maximum effort.
“So anytime anyone complains about wrestling it’s so annoying to me because people come off as these entitled infants,” Woods mentioned.
“Because in reality, wrestling hurts so bad. And then we’re hurting ourselves to entertain the masses. And sometimes the masses wanna tell us how much it sucks,” he ended.
