During a recent appearance on “Busted Open Radio,” WWE NXT 2.0 commentator Wade Barrett commented on what has impressed him the most about Carmelo Hayes, why he thinks he’d enjoy a match with the current NXT 2.0 North American Champion, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being impressed by Carmelo Hayes: “I’d say someone who’s really caught my eye though is Carmelo Hayes. He’s the North American Champion down here. A lot of talk about bangers these days in terms of matches; he’s [the] ‘NXT’ guaranteed banger kind of guy.”
On why he thinks he’d enjoy a match with Hayes: “I always had a good time when I was in the ring with some of the smaller, faster-moving, high-flying guys that could add that element of physical excitement that maybe I was a bit restricted in because of my own size. … I think that Carmelo Hayes exemplifies that. I think that he’d be a lot of fun to get in the ring with.”
