Wrestling's Newest Tag Team: 15 Things You Need To Know About Paige, Xavier Woods And Brad Maddox

Let’s start this off by addressing the giant elephant in the room…

Was it wrong that Paige had private pictures and videos leaked to the public? Yes. Did fans of professional wrestling have a field day in viewing and sharing said pictures and videos? Again, yes.

If it was just Paige, that would’ve been one thing. But once a video involving Paige, Xavier Woods, AND Brad Maddox leaked, the online community took it to another level.

First off, what an odd pairing. Paige has been on Woods’ Youtube show UpUpDownDown, proving that the two have been friendly. But throwing Maddox into the mix — someone who went from referee to general manager to jobber in the span of a couple of years — made the leaks somehow more interesting. Apparently it was Maddox's phone that was hacked, which led to the graphic images being leaked.

We’re over a week removed, and fans are still talking about the incident. While the video was interesting (to say the least) in and of itself, Paige, Woods, and Maddox have done some interesting things that don’t have to do with the video.

Let’s take a look at 15 things you need to know about Paige, Xavier Woods and Brad Maddox.

7 Brad Maddox Was Fired For Cursing

When Maddox returned to the ring after his stint as GM, he failed to make much of an impact with the WWE. In his final year, he went through two name changes (Joshua Kingsley and Lord Ruffles), made a tag team with Adam Rose known as Beef Mode, and was largely relegated to Main Event, Superstars, and dark matches. Unfortunately for Maddox, it was during a dark match that resulted in his release. Before his match, he was cutting a heel promo in front of the audience, referring to them as "cocky pricks."

6 Paige Started A WWE Trend

Earlier on the countdown, it was mentioned how Paige won the WWE Divas Championship on her first night on the main roster. On top of being the first woman to win a title in her first match and being the youngest Divas Champion of all time, she also started a trend that night that continues to this day. The night that Paige made her debut was the Monday Night RAW after WrestleMania XXX, making it the first time a wrestler from the NXT roster was called up on that specific day.

3 Paige Was The First Ever NXT Women's Champion

Paige has done a lot in her brief tenure on the main roster. She did, however, accomplish just as much — if not more — in developmental. During her time in NXT, she was seen as the precursor to having legitimate female talents wrestle a style that's usually associated with men. Because of her looks, youth, and impressive in-ring ability, Paige went on to become the inaugural NXT Women's Champion, a title she won after defeating multiple female talents in a tournament.

2 Xavier Woods and Cody Rhodes — High School Rivals

On an episode of Talk is Jericho, Xavier Woods and Cody Rhodes spoke about their high school rivalry, one that included amateur wrestling and girls. Let Woods explain his issues.

"I guess it was sophomore year, my whole thought was, 'okay, first off, he's at a rival school, so our schools legit hated each other in football, baseball, basketball, wrestling, everything. And so, I was 160 [pounds] at the time," Woods told Jericho with Rhodes sitting nearby. "I think he was wrestling at 180 [pounds], maybe. And my thought was, 'okay, I'm going to wrestle up two weight classes and then I'm going to beat him and Dusty [Rhodes]'s is going to be there because Dusty would be at the matches and Dusty's going to say, 'oh, you're the best! I'm going to train you and make you the best wrestler ever.

1 Brad Maddox Said Xavier Woods Was His Favorite Co-Worker

Let's get to the best part. At this stage of the game, everyone knows of the video that was leaked that involved Paige, Xavier Woods, and Brad Maddox. While it was unfortunate that this entire incident took place, it was interesting to see the trio that was involved in the sexual acts — that is, of course, if you didn't read Brad Maddox's 'Ask Me Anything' that took place on Reddit. One user had asked Maddox who his favorite co-workers in the WWE were. Maddox responded, "My favorite was Xavier Woods. Bray and Bo are also two of the nicest guys in wrestling."

At first glance, seeing Woods and Maddox with the same girl was an odd visual to say the least. But now that everyone knows how close they were, I guess it wasn't too far-fetched after all...
