#1 Xavier Woods and Lars Sullivan out of action until 2020; Will return in the Summer of next year
As revealed by PWinsider, Xavier Woods is not expected to be back until the Summer of 2020. The New Day member suffered an Achilles injury during a Live Event in Sydney and injuries of such nature usually take a long time to heal. The estimated rehab time has been pegged at around 9 -12 months.
Despite the absence of Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E aren't doing too bad as the duo won the SmackDown Tag Team titles from The Revival to become seven-time champs at the most recent episode of the Blue Brand in Manchester.
Another Superstar who is slated to return in the Summer of 2020 is Lars Sullivan, as per Fightful.
WWE's internal injury report states that Sullivan has been making slow progress when it came to recovering from his knee injury. The report states that his injury is "progressing slowly, even slower than some he’s experienced in the past”
As of this writing, Woods and Sullivan are both ideally scheduled to return to action in 2020.
