You never know what can happen when you travel a lot, especially if airplanes are your usual means of transportation. The airport and professional wrestling have a long strange history with each other and Xavier Woods recently experienced a situation that could have gotten way worse than it did.
While waiting for a flight, Xavier Woods decided to document every awful update of his current situation. The airline had overbooked his flight and wouldn't let the plane take off until 8 people gave up their tickets.
Most people would get very frustrated in this situation, but thankfully Woods realized he had a Twitter audience he could entertain by relaying his experience and that's exactly what he did for over two hours.
What follows is one of the most epic travel stories we've heard in a long time. We did the best we could to transcribe Xavier's experience and only kept a couple actual tweets due to the amazing gifs he included to go with the story.
So please enjoy Woods' excellent airport drama:
"Currently using Google Translate to explain to the man next to me that they need 8 volunteers or we aren't taking off"
"Things are breaking down at this gate. Three flights from the same gate and ours hasn't left yet People are starting to turn GOT style"
"It feels like a brawl may ensue, I'll keep my phone ready in case some @WORLDSTAR stuff happens"
"People have been clamoring for a manager and it's not this girl's fault. Someone just said they are gonna write a complaint letter!"
"HANDWRITTEN! NOT AN EMAIL! IVE NEVER SEEN THIS HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE BEFORE! ITS LITERALLY THAT SCENE FROM WHITE CHICKS!"
"Mental breakdowns are starting to occur. A man said he is lifetime executive platinum & will never fly them again. And just yelled at this girl who is working the desk like she purposely made it so we can't get on the plane. This girl, who is made of stone, looked at him and said, 'Ok, im sorry that this has happened sir but unfortunately there isn't anything I can do to help unless people volunteer to not take the flight' he then starts to yell again and she politely cuts him off and says 'is there anyone who needs help that will speak in an indoor Voice?' I haven't heard someone say 'indoor voice' since I worked in daycare. I love this. Girl at the desk is giving me life"
"THE FIRST F BOMB HAS BEEN DROPPED! THIS MAN CURSED AT THE GIRL AT THE DESK AND SHE WALKED AWAY! #Slobberknocker"
"The price just got upped to $1500 bucks after the 'lifetime executive platinum' man got loud about it. People smiled and the 'F bomb' guy in danger. The people next to me are actually conspiring to try to get people to ban together to get him booted off the flight. GOT a confirmed seat on a flight to Montreal tomorrow. But we may only need three more pretty soon cause this man who dropped the F bomb may be"
"So to update. We are delayed due to a weight restriction and need 4 more (got 4 already) volunteers to not fly. Reward is $1300, a hotel, & a woman is breastfeeding and shooting dirty looks at the man who cursed super loud. Crowd starting to turn on him....Is mad jealous. And he still doesn't know people are plotting to force him to volunteer for cursing at our Khaleesi (desk girl!)"
"WE ARE NOW AT $2000!!!! This is like watching deal or no deal. Everyone whispering with their friends. 'F' bomb guy whispering with no one"
"I helped an older lady fill out her declaration card then watched her, in one 30 second walk mind you, shun the 'F' bomb guy, then feign injury so she could skip the line to speak to our Khaleesi, then proceeded to try and plead her case for why she should get on the plane now"
"She said 'I honestly don't know how much time I've got left so I need to get on this flight' and Khaleesi STONE WALLED HER!"
"When the older woman returned to her seat she laughed and said 'I tried the old lady thing but she wasn't buying it'"
"I have no idea how I was selected to be blessed with all of this ridiculousness on this day."
"I can't with what just happened the 'lifetime executive platinum' dude just came and gave props to the old lady who faked an injury and the 'F' bomb guy saw it & visibly threw a 2 second tantrum. He looks like he wants to fight the old lady for being the cheating babyface"
"The 'F' bomb guy said something to Khaleesi under his breath, she stopped him & said 'you being rude did nothing to help anyone, know that'"
"Man in front of me, who also kept his cool, just jokingly said 'now we are gonna sit here in this plane for another 2 hours' please lord no"
"BREASTFEEDING MOM JUST GOT ON AND WALKED PAST 'F' BOMB GUY. SHE MOUTHED 'F@?$ YOU' AS SHE PASSED HIM! HOW ARE THINGS STILL HAPPENING?!?"
"We are about to take off. I'm still in awe that this even occurred. Hopefully it's done and a fight doesn't break out in customs byeeeee"
We can only assume Xavier might have given up his seat on the flight if he didn't have to be in Montreal on Saturday night to work a WWE house show. We're just glad everything turned out okay without any bloodshed, Game of Thrones style.
