Finally, unreleased footage showed us the reality. And it was not Carmelo Hayes.

We need to see how WWE pans out the angle further. But it seems like the ongoing NXT storyline isn’t the focus for Carmelo Hayes as the 29 year has been desperately eying to have a march at the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Freakin Rollins.

Is a World Heavyweight Championship match on the horizon next for Carmelo Hayes?

Kick-starting his career from the NXT performance center, The A Champ quickly rose to everyone’s good book. And with his increasing potential and a lot of dedication, he clinched the NXT Championship belt. Prior to claiming this coveted title, he won several other titles, including the NXT North American championship, the final NXT Cruiserweight Championship, etc. Currently, there is hardly a wrestler too big or too small that Hayes would fear to face.

Now he has been setting his eyes on the World Heavyweight Championship belt of WWE’s Seth Rollins.
