ComicBook.com recently interviewed The New Day's Xavier Woods at DragonCon this past week. Below are a couple of highlights:
"I saw the New Day entrance and it's funny because if you enjoy wrestling, you might remember a guy by the name of Trent Baretta. He texted me and goes "I'm sorry." I go "for what?". Turns out he was doing the [motion capture] for the game and did my entrance. "I watched it a hundred times and tried to do my best, but I can't move like you so I hope you like it. I'm sorry". I'm like, I'm sure you did fine, but then watched it and yep, that's Trent [laughs]. That's definitely Trent dancing."
Kenny Omega winning the G1 Tournament:
"Yeah, congrats to him! He's one of my favorite guys to watch in the ring and him and the [Young Bucks] are cool. It's always cool to go on Twitter and have a little interaction with them since we can't actually have it in person. For me, there are so many art forms in wrestling. There's the Ring of Honor art, the New Japan art, so whatever you enjoy, there's a facet of wrestling out there for you to watch. It's cool for me to respect guys out there across the board. I love it. It's something I've loved since I was a kid and always great when I find other guys in my profession who love the same games as me. So finding Kenny was fantastic.
"We had a lot of mutual friends and I remember it was almost like a cold call. It was like "hey, are you...cool...with video games?". Luckily our friendship blossomed from there. So it's great when I can meet people in this job that love the same games."
Xavier also revealed his favorite WWE game, talked which WWE game was "not good," Omega beating him at CEO 2016 this past summer and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
