Carmelo Hayes Reportedly Planned For A Main Roster WWE Callup In The Summer, Could Continue Feud With Trick Williams


NXT’s hottest feud could be set to continue moving up to the main roster.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams have been paired together for the majority of their runs in NXT, although after Hayes attacked Trick backstage and then turned on him in the ring, they now find themselves locked in a personal feud. The pair are to face off at NXT Stand And Deliver on WrestleMania weekend, and it looks as though that may not be the last time we see them go at it.

Fightful Select have now provided an update on both men regarding their main roster callup plans, noting Hayes has been planned for a move to the main roster since before the Royal Rumble, and whilst Williams’ plans post-Stand And Deliver remain unclear, there have been pitches for their feud to continue beyond NXT.

“Many have asked us about what the status of both men’s callups are. One source told Fightful Select that Carmelo has been set for his main roster callup since prior to the Royal Rumble and is expected to move up to the main roster full-time in the summer. With regards to Trick Williams, officials took notice of the reaction Williams got in his surprise SmackDown appearance back in January. There have been pitches for the pair to continue their rivalry on the main roster after Stand And Deliver, but Williams’ plans past the Premium Live Event remain unclear.”

Additionally, the report notes that Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan has learned that the current plan is for Hayes and Williams to main event NXT Stand And Deliver, with officials pushing for the match to go on last ahead of Ilja Dragunov’s NXT Championship defence against Tony D’Angelo.

One official who is said to have been very hands-on with the heated storyline is Shawn Michaels, a longtime supporter of Hayes, who Fightful note has helped plan and map out the storyline alongside the pair.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the future of both Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams as soon as we hear more.
