“I think I’m ready,” Woods said in an emotional message on YouTube, clutching his trusty trombone, Francesca 2. “It’s time for me to record an album, go on tour, and be a real tromboner.”
In the video, teammates Kofi Kingston and Big E are can be seen struggling to stifle laughter upon hearing the word “tromboner.”
Woods has been honing his musical craft in WWE for more than a year, honking out a syncopated series of three notes, playing a comical “oooooOOOOP” when his partners perform a slingshot attack.
Woods has reportedly already begun recording his debut album, Tootie-Ohs, which is tentatively scheduled to include tracks such as:
- Honk, HonkHonk
- Spit Valve Release
- Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Tableaux Opus #39 No.3
Sources who have heard the initial recordings are divided in their opinions, with some reporting that it “rocks,” while others insisting that it “sucks.”
