Carmelo Hayes says he is the new face of NXT and the veterans just have to deal with that.
The most recent episode of NXT saw Carmelo Hayes, the brand new NXT North American Champion, confront Tommaso Ciampa, the current NXT Champion, declaring himself the top champion on the brand.
Now, Carmelo Hayes is expanding upon that statement in a new video released on social media where he calls out several NXT veterans and says he doesn't care about them or their opinions he is focused on himself and proving that he is the best wrestler on NXT.
"This is for all you NXT veterans that are pressed at the fact I'm calling myself the ‘A-Champion.’ I’mma let 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 freaking miss. So from this point on, this is my show. This is my brand. I'm the new face of NXT. That's all it is. That's all it’s going to be. Y'all can just kiss my ass."
