Booker T Explains Why He Is Happy Carmelo Hayes Is Still In NXT

Booker T is happy Carmelo Hayes is still in NXT.

Carmelo Hayes is the current NXT Champion, but many fans believe he should be on the main roster. He is one of the most talented competitors on the WWE roster, main or otherwise.

During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T discussed Hayes and how the champions presentation needs a change.

“He is him. The dude is good, man. Carmelo is good. I can agree with you as far as something being missing as well. I totally understand exactly where you’re coming from as far as that goes. The thing is, I think maybe it’s just having that ability to just go out and beat up somebody flawlessly. Wrestling someone is one thing, but going out and beating a guy up is something totally different. Carmelo maybe needs to think about raising his game as far as that goes. As far as knowing how to go out there and really tattoo someone and really make the fans feel like that person is really being tattooed. I can’t really get too deep into what I mean about that kind of stuff because, again, I’m like a magician, it’s about keeping your tricks real close to the bag. Carmelo is next level talent but that’s one of the reasons I’m happy he still is in NXT because he’s a work in progress. He’s a diamond in the rough that just needs to be polished,”

We will have to wait and see what comes next for the NXT Champion and if he will be on his way to the main roster in the future.
