Xavier Woods to undergo medical evaluation after suffering knee injury

By Dave Meltzer and Joseph Currier

WWE officials have confirmed that Xavier Woods will be undergoing a medical evaluation today for an apparent left knee injury that he suffered during Monday's SmackDown brand house show in Texarkana, Arkansas.

News of the injury appeared on social media as soon as it happened last night. A video of it was later tweeted out, with it showing Woods immediately grabbing his left knee when being put down by one of the Usos after going for a tornado DDT.

Woods rolled to the apron and eventually out of the ring. The match went to its finish, then Big E, Fandango, and Kofi Kingston motioned for medical attention as Woods continued to grab his knee. The video ends with referee Charles Robinson putting up the "X" symbol.

Woods had to be carried to the back by Kingston, Big E, and a WWE physician after the match was over and was clearly in great pain. Woods tweeted "....cool." after the injury happened. He later replied to the video of it by writing, "Didn't even look cool."

The New Day (Woods & Kingston) were facing The Usos and Breezango in a triple threat tag title match when Woods' injury happened.
