Xavier Woods is the only member of The New Day without a singles title
The New Day as a group are the most successful tag team in WWE history, sharing 10 tag team titles between them. Along with all their tag team success, they have had success as individuals as well. Kofi Kingston has held the WWE Championship once, the Intercontinental title four times, and has had three reigns as the United States Champion.
Xavier Woods is the only member of The New Day without a singles title. Woods is extremely talented in the ring and has shown it on a number of occasions. He has had a number of singles victories even after he joined The New Day but is yet to make a serious run at a singles title.
Hopefully, we will someday get to see Xavier Woods make a serious run at any one of WWE's singles titles. As of now, we along with The New Day congratulate Big E on his title win and wish him all the best.Published 26 Dec 2020, 14:12 IST
