Kevin Sabbe, Head of Content, orated his delight of Woods’ signing during the aforementioned holiday special:
“We could not be happier to welcome Xavier to the family and introduce the first member of G4’s new cast. The list of on-air talent with advanced degrees in psychology, unbridled passion for video games, and multiple WWE Tag Team Championships is not long. We loved Xavier’s creative #Creed4G4 campaign and cannot wait to showcase his many talents throughout G4’s developing slate of programming. Xavier stands as a fantastic first representative of an exciting and diverse team that we are assembling for G4 and will be introducing in the coming weeks and months.”
Sabbe wasn’t the only person delighted. The effervescent Woods could hardly hide his Cheshire Cat grin as he spoke on the honour that he had began to campaign for over one year ago, which came following the announcement that The New Day would be playable characters in the Gears 5 video game:
“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect #Creed4G4 to gain so much momentum among WWE fans and gamers alike. As a lifelong video game fanatic, I have always held a genuine affinity for the G4 brand and I’m honored and humbled to be joining the G4 team at a time when interest in gaming and the gaming community has never been stronger.”
Xavier Woods is the host of the uber-popular UpUpDownDown YouTube gaming channel which recently won the Esports Content Creator of the Year Award.
Recently, as part of The New Day, Woods and Kofi Kingston fell in a thrilling battle to The Street Profits in a champions vs. champions match at Survivor Series on November 22.
