Carmelo Hayes’ friendship with Trick Williams was one of the best things about NXT but he ultimately betrayed him at NXT Vengeance Day and after a lot of drama, the two finally faced each other at NXT Stand & Deliver, where Williams won. The same thing happened on NXT last week and following Williams’ NXT Title win this week, Carmelo Hayes has reacted to the same.

Tonight’s WWE NXT Spring Breakin featured a high-stakes title match where Trick Williams took on NXT Champion Ilja Dragunov for the championship. Williams had previously challenged for the title but fell short, making this rematch crucial for his career. With his NXT future on the line, the pressure was immense as he prepared to step into the ring against the formidable Dragunov.

The climax came when Williams executed his signature Trickshot maneuver, flooring Dragunov and securing the three-count, earning his first-ever NXT Championship. This remarkable victory marked a turning point in Williams’ career, solidifying his place in NXT history and setting the stage for an exciting title reign. The emotional win and the vibrant energy in the arena underscored the significance of this moment, both for Williams and the entire NXT roster.

Carmelo Hayes took to Twitter to post a photo without any caption or worded sentiment. The image depicted Melo and Trick Williams shaking hands in the ring during the early days of NXT 2.0, a moment from when their alliance was first formed.


This nostalgic photo serves as a subtle nod to the early and perhaps better days between the two, indicating a clear moment of respect and camaraderie. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see how Trick Williams will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
