Carmelo Hayes worked hard to make himself one of the highlights of NXT. His impeccable in-ring skills and athleticism helped him win over fans as well. He has developed a lot in NXT and has his own catchphrases. That said, Haye reacted to AEW releasing new Devil merchandise that jacked his catchphrase.
This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was night full of solid in-ring action and memorable moments. This included a major update on MJF’s feud with the person posing as The Devil, which mostly saw MJF being knocked unconscious backstage by what fans assume was The Devil.
In light of this storyline, AEW released new merchandise for The Devil, which was a t-shirt with the words ‘I Am Him.’ Carmelo Hayes took to Twitter and reacted to AEW releasing the t-shirt, stating that he would get one. In case you didn’t know, Carmelo Hayes’ catchphrase is also ‘I am him.’
”Lemme get one”
Hayes, who has tirelessly built his name in NXT, has undoubtedly left his mark with the iconic phrase ‘I am him.’ Yet, as AEW unveils its own ‘I Am Him’ merchandise for The Devil, the lines blur between fandom and rivalry.
