What's the story?

During a recent edition of UpUpDownDown, Xavier Woods and Tyler Breeze played Wheel of Fortune with a few cast members of Super Troopers 2.

It was during the show that Woods gave his take on what exactly is a "Wrestler’s Court".

In case you didn't know…

"Wrestler’s Court" is a professional wrestling term that implies a courtroom kind of setting which sees pro-wrestlers settle their real-life grievances regarding their co-workers or any issue at the workplace.

The court’s judge is usually the person who’s regarded by the majority of performers as the locker room leader.

The heart of the matter

Xavier Woods asserted that a "Wrestler’s Court" is indeed a place where pro-wrestlers settle their real-life workplace disputes.

Woods expounded upon what the backstage happening - which is commonplace in the pro-wrestling business - really means. Below are a few excerpts from his statements regarding the same:

"Wrestler's Court' is like somebody steals my move and I can take him to 'Wrestler's Court…So, we have the jury, we have everyone watching, the judge, and I plead my case. ... I can chose someone to represent me or to represent myself."

"We plead our cases and the jury figures everything out. Judge makes his (decision) and if you don't want to do what needs to be done - let's say he has to be my driver for the next two weeks - if he doesn't do that, then, the bailiff comes and anything could happen."


What's next?

Xavier Woods presently competes on the WWE’s SmackDown Live show; alongside New Day stable-mates Big E and Kofi Kingston in the blue brand's Tag Team Division.
