As part of an appearance with Inside the strings, Cody Rhodes shared how he knew Xavier Woods before WWE and once stole his girlfriend.
“Xavier Woods and I went to high school together. We end up wrestling, once he wrestles a weight class to fight me. If you ask Xavier Woods, he’ll tell you a whole different side of the story. Legit version is he loses by just a few points.Fast forward until I’m on their side of town in a bowling alley, with a girl I just started seeing named Lindsey.
“I guess Lindsey and Xavier used to see each other, so Xavier Woods shows up… And I see him and I don’t know if I was lucky or not, but I grab the ball and do it roll in the lane and it’s Fuck strike. And I walked up to him and I said, I know you, I beat you and I’m leaving and I didn’t think about it.
Rhodes went on to explain that now, every time he sees Xavier Woods, he reminds him of that day and what a “piece of shit” he is.
Cody Rhodes and Xavier Woods have since been married
Cody Rhodes and Xavier Woods now work for WWE and have been able to work side-by-side for several years, so it looks like they’ve put their troubles behind them.
As previously reported, Cody Rhodes met Brandi while working as a ring announcer for WWE and has since married the former star and welcomed a daughter.
Xavier Woods is also married, the former champion married Jess Watson in 2015 before the couple welcomed their son in 2017.
Although the two stars have gone through a lot of changes since high school, it seems like they’ve remained friends, and it’s a story Rhodes and Woods often like to tell.
