Xavier Woods Explains How He Tore His Achilles

Xavier Woods detailed his recent Achilles injury which happened on October 21 at a WWE live event in Australia. Woods made his comments on the New Day: Feel The Power podcast.

"I ended up doing a backflip at the beginning of the match and as soon as I landed, I felt like somebody had kicked me in the back of the foot. I went to take another step and I realized I couldn't push off of that foot. Immediately, the thought shot across my mind that it was my Achilles because that's where I felt it. Got to the back, the doctor said it's most likely a torn Achilles, and when I heard that, there were a lot of different emotions. A torn Achilles is an injury that takes a very long time to come back from. Knowing I could be out for up to a year -- this was before I got an MRI. I have to fly from Sydney to Atlanta the next day. Then go to Atlanta to Birmingham to get surgery."

"The doctor tells me, 'here's the breakdown; you tore it in an instant. It will take me 14 minutes to fix it. It could possibly take up to a year to feel good on it again,' which is terrifying to me. At this point in time, I feel like [New Day] is running in our prime, especially on TV. We're having a great run. To get an injury that will take me out for an extended period of time is something that has shaken me to my core."
