WWE.com: You can often be heard shouting “It’s Morphin’ Time” during your matches — an ode to the popular ’90s children’s television show, “Power Rangers.” Please explain.

Woods: Well, I hail from Angel Grove, Calif., which is the city that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers so bravely defended on a daily basis. They were able to fight OK without tapping into their true strength, but eventually when things became too much for them to handle, they had to yell "It’s Morphin’ Time" to tap into that strength in order to prevail over evil. So when I yell it, that’s me tapping into that true strength and then absolutely obliterating whoever is across the ring from me with my patented "Honor Roll.”

WWE.com: Describe your in-ring style.

Woods: I have a very unique in-ring style because I rely a lot on my expressions and voice as much as I do my body and the way that I move. I talk a lot while I'm wrestling, and some people believe that means a person is not taking things seriously, but I am the complete opposite. The more serious the moment, then the louder and more ridiculous I’m going to be because it helps me focus on the main goal: winning

WWE.com: You were recently selected as one of the keynote speakers for the grand opening of the WWE Performance Center in Florida. What did that mean to you?

Woods: That was a great experience. When they told me that I was going to do it, I was so excited. To know that I was handpicked by WWE COO Triple H to stand in front of a number of media outlets and represent the company in that capacity really meant a lot to me. My parents were really proud of me, and honestly that was the best part of it —being able to show them that my ridiculous childhood dreams are paying off and that their son is really starting to make something of himself.

WWE.com: What kind of standard do you hope to set on NXT and beyond?

Woods: I want to be the smartest and most entertaining wrestler to ever come through WWE. Yes, that is a huge task, but if you make lame goals then you’ll achieve lame results. Also, I want to get King of the Ring back up and running so I can win it. That was always my favorite WWE event when I was younger. So to put all that together, my goal is to be Dr. Xavier Woods, “The King of WWE.”

For those who watch me, I want them to know that the most important thing in life is to do something that makes you smile. If you're smiling and not hurting anyone else in the process, then you're on the right track.
