WWE Superstar Shake-Up Returns

During a recent commercial that aired in Canada, Scott Stamford announced that the inaugural “International Superstar Shake-Up” will be taking place on April 15 and 16 at the Bell Center in Montreal, Canada, a week after WrestleMania 35 (April 7).

The term “international” used in the title could possibly mean that NXT stars from the United States and the United Kingdom are going to be included in the pool.

Xavier Woods On Vince McMahon

On Corridor Cast, WWE Superstar Xavier Woods revealed how he had put his career on the line with CEO Vince McMahon during the early days of The New Day.

Woods bet that if he failed to make the WWE Universe boo stablemate Kofi Kingston in four weeks, he would be fired.

“When they let us make the group, we were good guys. For the industry terms, we were baby faces, and we thought we should be bad guys, heels, and after a while, some things happened and people were chanting, ‘New Day sucks’ and it’s like, ‘Ok, yes. Cool. They’ll let us turn a corner and we can be bad guys now’, and they thought that since Kofi had been a baby-face for so long that they wouldn’t boo him, and so, to me, I was like, ‘No, we’re in control of that. I guarantee you…’ “

“I went to Vince McMahon and I was like, ‘If you give us… if you give me a microphone four weeks in a row, I guarantee you that they’ll boo Kofi Kingston, and he was like, ‘You really believe in this that much?’ I said, ‘Yes, I believe that I can do it’, and he goes, ‘Four weeks? And if you don’t do it in four weeks then what happens?'”

“I said if I don’t do it in four weeks, you’ve got 60 dudes in developmental that deserve this spot more than I do, [and Vince is like], ‘I can send you home? Get ready’, and I said, ‘You should if I can’t do it. If I can’t make good on this then I don’t deserve to be here’, and he’s like, ‘Alright’.”
