WWE NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes posted a new video on Saturday, commenting on several WWE NXT veterans who don’t like that he calls himself the A-champion. He said,
“Hey, this is for all you NXT veterans that are pressed at the fact I’m calling myself the A-Champion. Well, you know, right now, I don’t care what you guys think. Tommaso Ciampa, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano — I’m not worried about y’all. I’m gonna keep doing what I’m doing because at the end of the day, when I get in the ring, I don’t freakin’ miss. So from this point on, this is my show. This is my brand. I’m the new face of NXT. And that’s all it is. That’s all it’s going to be. And y’all can just kiss my ass.”
During last week’s episode of WWE NXT 2.0, Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams defeated Johnny Cargano and Dexter Lumis in the main event. Hayes also told Tommaso Ciampa that he was the new A-Champion.
