Former WWE Tag Team Champion Xavier Woods was advertised as the new co-host for Talking Smack alongside Kayla Braxton, but he was notably absent during last week’s premiere with The Miz filling in his place.
Woods explained on Table Talk that communication fell through the cracks regarding his new role.
“I was at home. I found out when ya’ll found out. It’s been adjusted, so I’ll be there soon. It’s one of those things where, it’s a very large company and you’ll find with any large company, sometimes, things get lost in the cracks. Things somebody told someone else, but they didn’t. It’s a regular thing with a company that is as large and successful as this. It’s not a bad thing. It’s just, ‘Oops,’ and now we’re cool.”
“Fingers crossed that I get to continue to host it because when someone tells me, ‘Hey, you get to do this unscripted television show,’ people don’t always like what I say. So, we’ll see how long it goes.”
Woods should appear with Braxton on the next episode airing Saturday morning on the WWE Network.
