Xavier Woods is an American professional wrestler and television personality. He is known under his ring name Xavier Woods, and is a former victor of the King of the Ring tournament. In addition to wrestling, Austin Creed has also made public appearances outside of the sport under the name of Austin Creed. In the past, he worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) as Consequences Creed, and as a member of the Lethal Consequences tag team with Jay Lethal, he was a TNA World Tag Team Champion.
After signing a contract with WWE several years ago, Xavier Woods was assigned to one of the most advanced developmental territories in the world, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). In 2013, Woods was called up to the main roster by the WWE and is now part of their NXT roster, which was rebranded from FCW in 2013. The New Day, comprised of Woods and Big E, was formed in 2014 alongside Kofi Kingston and Big E, and has since then achieved many accomplishments as a WWE tag team champion.
A record was broken by New Day in February 2021 when the second reign of the Raw Tag Team Championship was broken. King Woods became Xavier Woods’ ring name in October 2021 after becoming the 22nd winner of King of the Ring.
He has hosted a gaming YouTube channel, UpUpDownDown, as Austin Creed, since 2015, where he invites fellow WWE performers, gamers, friends, and guests to play games. Additionally, he hosts the G4 television network, which covers video games, following its revival in 2020.
