The term ‘Jack of All Trades” can be redefined these days into “Woods of All Trades,” especially with the current release of “The Book of Booty: Shake It. Love It. Never Be It,” available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target and so many more places.
That latest book release is from WWE’s The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods).
Woods, 31, is multi-faceted, a renaissance man for sure, and he sure enjoys what he does, which includes making this book.
Never miss a local story.
Audio interview with Xavier Woods
He discusses the book, needing positive vibes, forming The New Day, playing the trombone, naming it Francseca, elaborate ring entrances, WrestleMania in New Orleans, Trombone Shorty, and more.
Woods wrestles. He is athletic, and he entertains, using his charm, personality, sense of humor and quick wit.
Woods also plays the trombone.
Talk about having fun. Woods was featured playing trombone and tambourine as well as dancing and singing on the Postmodern Jukebox cover of “What is Love” music video.
Woods is smart. Education is important.
An alum of Furman University (Go Paladins) in South Carolina, Woods graduated with a bachelor's degree in philosophy and a master’s degree in psychology. Working on his doctorate, he also holds a degree in ring psychology. When his sports entertainment career ends, Woods wants to work with children with autism.
Last year, Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston hosted WWE’s WrestleMania 33 from Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
He discusses hosting WrestleMania, wrestling in WrestleMania, celebrating National Pancake Day, summing up The New Day in one word, education program offered by WWE, and more.
Woods enjoys attending comic cons in colorful cosplay. His WWE ring attire is elaborate, too. He conducts a fun video-game playing, interview show “UpUpDownDown” on YouTube.
