Lexis King, who recently made his debut in WWE’s NXT, has broken his silence after his controversial interjection into an important match on the November 21 episode of NXT.

The match in question saw Josh Briggs take on former NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes in singles action, with the winner earning the third slot in the men’s Iron Survivor Challenge at NXT Deadline on December 10.

In a surprising turn of events, Briggs pulled off the victory over Hayes, thanks in part to outside interference from Lexis King, who distracted Hayes at a critical moment in the match.

Following the match, King took to Twitter to congratulate Briggs on his win, stating, “Congratulations to Josh Briggs on an outstanding victory! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really do bring out the best in everyone at #WWENXT.”


Lexis King’s immediate involvement in a high-profile angle involving Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams indicates WWE’s confidence in pushing him as a significant character on the NXT brand. While it remains to be seen if Hayes will face King at NXT Deadline, no official announcement has been made regarding that match or any other match announcements for the event.

Fans of NXT will be eager to see how this storyline continues to develop, and Ringside News will provide updates on any future developments and match announcements for NXT Deadline.

Lexis King’s involvement in the recent NXT match has certainly stirred up some controversy. What do you think this means for his future in WWE’s NXT, and how do you see this storyline playing out? Leave us a comment.
