Xavier Woods Reveals The Origin Of His Honor Roll Move


During the latest episode of The New Day’s “Feel the Power” podcast, Xavier Woods revealed the origin of his Honor Roll move. He said,

“I saw Tajiri slide into the ring on his stomach, but he rolled and kipped up to his feet. I was like (gasp). That was just him getting into the ring for his entrance. It stuck with me and I was teaching myself how to kip up when I was 12 or 13. I did it, but I had to push off with my hands, and my arms were up. I figured, if I could learn to kip up off of my neck, when I do a front flip, I can clothesline somebody. The day I realized this, I was 14 years old, and I was going to call it the Honor Roll because I was going to be a smart wrestler. Every time I hit it, I get the feeling of 14-year-old me.”
