Pro wrestling is an act, as many a helpful Internet commenter will point out below any article about this stuff. It’s staged. It’s scripted. The evil Russian bad guys, it turns out, are often actually Americans.

Wrestling may be scripted entertainment, but Xavier Woods’ Pokémon Go chat here is coming from a very real place.
Whatever 2K Sports is paying their marketing department employees, it’s not enough. The WWE 2K games get mixed to positive reviews, but the promotion of those games is consistent, first-rate, and exemplary. Whoever makes the games’ commercials has a masterful grasp on why fans love the WWE.
WWE wrestler Xavier Woods, noted enthusiast of the video games, unleashed a Street Fighter-style Hadouken on Aiden English in a bout last night.
The future of the WWE is a 26-year-old woman who wears a side ponytail in a scrunchie and snap bracelets on her wrists. She’s an athletic hero to little girls and jaded, older male fans alike, and she wrestled in what may have been the WWE’s best match of 2015.
WWE tag team champion Xavier Woods does not fit people’s stereotypical preconceptions of what a professional wrestler is. He’s got a Master’s degree in psychology and is currently working towards earning his PhD. He’s really into comic books and cosplay. And he spends hours playing video games on the road, in hotel…
WWE 2K16 is coming to the PC on March 11, and it’ll include all of the DLC from the console versions for free. 2K says the PC version will “largely mirror” the console versions, but it’ll also be a little cheaper—$50.
WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan, considered one of the best of his generation for his dynamic hard-hitting style, just announced on Twitter that he is retiring from wrestling for medical reasons.
I am sure that Daniel Bryan, who is possibly the greatest pro wrestler in the world, wants to wrestle this Sunday.

Some games have fans. Undertale, the RPG in which you don’t have to hurt anyone, has a bonafide fandom. They make some weird, wonderful stuff.
Xavier Woods, leader of the endlessly entertaining WWE tag team act The New Day, added two Final Fantasy Easter Eggs to last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw. He played the series’ signature victory fanfare on a trombone during a backstage segment and then, awesomely, during the main event while his partner was…
I’m obsessed enough about pro wrestling to have spent $340 to go to Summerslam this past weekend.... to sit in $75 nosebleed seats, since my order for floor seats apparently never went through. That was the second of three nights of sold out WWE action that I saw in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, 12+ hours of live…
I used to think that it was just nostalgia, screwing with my memory. But when I did a side-by-side comparison, there was no comparison at all.
