For weeks now, I have been profiling superstars from the WWE's Developmental Territory: Florida Championship Wrestling.
These FCW Superstars have stood out from the rest of the pack, and many will become future WWE Superstars. You may have heard of many, but may not be familiar with others.
This next FCW Superstar is the only former TNA Superstar in this series. Now known as Xavier Woods, TNA fans may know this man as Consequences Creed.
After a couple stops on the independent scene, Creed debuted in TNA at its Bound For Glory pay-per-view in 2007. He replaced Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones as Ron Killings' (now R-Truth in the WWE) tag team partner.
These two would soon form a team named " " However, this team came to an abrupt halt after Killings asked for and was granted his release.
After months off of TV, Creed would return to TNA on February 10, and defeat Jimmy Rave to qualify for the Xscape, the cage match at Lockdown. At the pay-per-view, Creed was eliminated by Curry Man.
Creed would subsequently challenge for the X-Division Championship the following match, but lost that as well.
Then, Jay Lethal came to save the day.
Creed would join a newly formed stable called "The Frontline." Along with many others, Jay Lethal was a member of this group.
The two would start teaming and defeat Beer Money for the TNA Tag Team Championships. From here, the team of Lethal Consequences would become a lethal threat to TNA's tag division.
Beer Money soon sought revenge, and regained their titles at Genesis.
Creed and Lethal would participate in many other angles, but nothing of real consequence.
Ok, I'll stop with all the puns.
Creed eventually would be released from his TNA contract and sign a developmental contract with the WWE.
Entering its developmental territory (FCW), Creed would change his ring name to Xavier Woods.
In FCW, Woods won the FCW Tag Team Championships with Wes Brisco, until Brisco went down with an injury.
So, what's next for Woods?
For now, I could see him being brought in and do something with R-Truth, since the two have worked together before.
They could either have them team or feud. But with Woods usually being a face, a feud to get Woods over would be a nice step for his career.
Another possibility would be if Jay Lethal was signed by the WWE, and they could debut as a team. I, however, don't see Lethal as the WWE's type.
Of course, Woods could also debut with Wes Brisco, since they have teamed in FCW.
Xavier Woods is very charismatic and entertaining, which is exactly what the WWE is looking for. In my opinion, Woods makes for a tremendous tag team wrestler, and at 24, still has potential oozing out of him.
If given a chance, I can see him as a future star.
So, which of those options do you prefer? Does Xavier Woods have a bright future in the WWE? Or will he get the pink slip before he makes it to the WWE?
