“I’ll always be grateful for Xavier Woods because Xavier really took Wes under his wing. Xavier had come from TNA and had already experienced a high level, and he was able to pass that knowledge willingly on to Wes and elevate Wes not only in the ring but [also] mentally. That’s what I really appreciate.”
He spoke about how Woods helped Wes Brisco in becoming a better team player and taught him to get better in the business. Woods helped him escalate in the industry and he mentioned that he would be grateful to Xavier Woods for that.
He said: “It’s great when a guy takes the time and teaches you how to be a better tag team partner, but when he takes the time and teaches you how to be a better business man, that’s helping the business [and] helping everybody elevate their selves. That’s what Xavier did for Wes and I’ll always be grateful for that.”
