Although he hasn't appeared on WWE programming recently, that hasn't stopped Xavier Woods from keeping himself engaged and in the spotlight. The multifaceted New Day member has been actively pursuing his passion for gaming, particularly on his UpUpDownDown YouTube channel where he often engages in video game battles with his fellow wrestlers.
However, amidst all the fun and virtual competition, there's one topic that has been weighing on Woods' mind: the return of a former WWE superstar to the ring.
Woods Desires Tyler Breeze's Return
"I do have something that I want to see before the end of this year," Woods earnestly revealed to Kayla Braxton on "WWE's The Bump." "I want to see Tyler Breeze back in a WWE ring.
That's what I want to see. I want to see him on 'Raw' I want to see him on 'SmackDown.' That's what I want. I'm going to say it right here. I'm going to say it loud and proud." Tyler Breeze is no stranger to WWE fans, having first signed with the company back in 2010 as part of the developmental brand Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
He played an integral role when "NXT" was launched in 2012 and eventually made his way to the main roster in 2015. Breeze's charismatic personality allowed him to form a dynamic partnership with Fandango in May 2016, with the duo becoming known as Breezango.
This alliance led them to triumph in capturing the "NXT" Tag Team Championship in the summer of 2020. Unfortunately, their time together was cut short when both were released from their contracts in June 2021. While Fandango has since moved on, competing in Impact Wrestling under the moniker Dirty Dango, Breeze's journey took a different turn.
After taking a couple of years away from the ring to refresh and recalibrate, he made a triumphant return to action on July 8 in Next Generation Wrestling. The nostalgia and respect that Woods has for his former colleague are evident, and his hope for Breeze's return to WWE resonates with many fans.
Whether this wish will come to fruition before 2023 ends remains a tantalizing question, but Woods' public endorsement adds an exciting layer to the anticipation. As WWE continues to evolve and surprise its audience, the potential return of Tyler Breeze could be the next thrilling chapter in a saga filled with unpredictability, talent, and a passion for the sport.
