Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 30) — Professional American wrestler Xavier Woods returns to the country to promote World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

His last visit was in 2016 when his group, New Day, successfully defended the WWE Tag Team Championship in a triple threat match.

Woods and New Day have set the record for the longest tag team champion reign (483 days) in WWE history.

The wrestling superstar shared his thoughts on local talents reaching the pinnacle of WWE success.

"There's definitely people in the Philippines that can be WWE superstars. I think one of the interesting things about WWE is that there's so many people from different places and backgrounds," he told CNN Philippines in an exclusive interview Friday.

"And it really goes to show you can come from anywhere and make it to WWE. It's just a matter of time," he added.

Currently, Dave Bautista more popularly known as Batista, and T.J. Perkins are the wrestlers with Filipino blood in WWE.
