Xavier Woods is King of the Ring.

After defeating Ricochet and Jinder Mahal, Xavier Woods made it to the finals of the 2021 King of the Ring tournament. He and Finn Balor went one-on-one at WWE Crown Jewel in the tournament final and it was Woods hitting an elbow drop from the top rope to get the victory.

Woods had been campaigning on social media for several years to be involved in the King of the Ring tournament and said it was always one of his goals to win it.

The dream has come true. 👑
