WWE has seen many legends over its illustrious history. Some ex-wrestlers are so iconic that even current wrestlers pay tribute by cosplaying them.

The most recent is New Day member Xavier Woods cosplaying WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall, a.k.a., Razor Ramon. What a beautiful gesture to see the young wrestlers respecting the veterans.

It all started with The Miz and Johnny Drip Drip teasing a new water company during the pre-show. It looked like The Miz and Morrison had some sort of mischief up their sleeves. However, when it was time to commence their plan, both of them had forgotten the “Drip Stick 2000”.

Luckily for them, the Bad Guy was there to help. But wait! It wasn’t Razor Ramon; it was Xavier Woods sporting Ramon’s gear and iconic hairstyle. While they were in the ring, squabbling about who has the Drip Stick 2000, Woods made his way from the crowd.

Woods was even wearing Scott Hall’s red and black nWo look from his time as the Outsiders. He even had the toothpick in his mouth the entire time. The fans acknowledged the tribute.

Woods walked up to the ring with the enormous Drip Stick 2000 and just went to town on Miz and Morrison. Both men stood no chance in front of the force of the gun. They truly became “America’s Moist Wanted” after Woods was done.

Like every year, this year’s biggest party of the summer was a tremendous success. The fans in attendance and at home thoroughly enjoyed the surprises and title changes in the event.

But maybe two of the biggest talking points were ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch and ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar’s shocking return. It was a sight to behold as the arena echoed the chants of Becky and Lesnar.

Becky even won the WWE SmackDown Women’s championship in almost 20 seconds after her match began. A little underwhelming ending to a much hyped wrestler. But nonetheless, the fans are just happy to see their favorite wrestler back in WWE.
