Watson is an American professional wrestler and television personality performing under the ring name Xavier Woods, and is a former King of the Ring tournament winner. He also makes public appearances outside of wrestling under the name Austin Creed. He previously worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) as Consequences Creed, and was a one-time TNA World Tag Team Champion with Jay Lethal as Lethal Consequences.

After signing with WWE in 2010, he was assigned to its developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) under the ring name Xavier Woods. FCW was later rebranded into NXT, where Woods worked until he was called up to the main roster in 2013. In 2014, Woods formed The New Day alongside Big E and Kofi Kingston, and has since set records as a tag team champion in WWE.

New Day’s second reign with the Raw Tag Team Championship was the longest tag team title reign of any male tag team championship in WWE history until that record was broken in February 2021. In October 2021, Xavier Woods became the 22nd man to win the King of the Ring tournament, and his ring name was changed to King Woods.

Since 2015, as Austin Creed, he has hosted a gaming YouTube channel titled UpUpDownDown, where he invites fellow WWE performers, gaming personalities, friends, and guests to play games. He is also a host on the G4 television network, which covers video games, following its revival in 2020.

At NXT Deadline in December 2022, Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston won the NXT Tag Team titles, making The New Day the third WWE Triple Crown Tag Team Champions.
