- Tonight's SmackDown saw Xavier Woods lose to Cesaro in singles action, just one week after Woods defeated Sheamus. As seen below, Woods noted on Twitter that he suffered a hole in his tongue during the loss to Cesaro. It's worth noting that WWE tweeted a photo of blood coming out of Woods' mouth.
Losing sucks. There is now a hole in my tongue. Goodnight.— Austin Creed (@XavierWoodsPhD) May 9, 2018
