WWE Star Teases Reigniting Feud WWE

The number 1 contender for the NXT Championship will be decided in a 25-man battle royal on next week’s episode of the show.

Cody Rhodes announced the plan for the June 18 episode of WWE NXT to Trick Williams which can be seen below this news story.

Rhodes also noted that some of those involved will be “from different locker rooms”, teasing the possibility of TNA wrestlers appearing, something that, among others, Matt Hardy took notice of.

WWE SmackDown’s Carmelo Hayes was also paying attention and shared a tease of his own, tweeting:

“Different locker rooms?

“Na I’m playin but imagine 👀”

Hayes and Williams were previously friends in WWE NXT with the events of October 17 2023 created a rift between them.

With NXT Halloween Havoc seeing Ilja Dragunov defend the NXT Championship, a Triple Threat match was set for the October 17 show with Hayes, Dijak and Baron Corbin set to decide the number 1 contender.

Williams was added to the match, turning the Triple Threat into a Fatal 4-Way match with Hayes going on to win the match after Williams was attacked backstage.

It wouldn’t be until February 2024 that fans would discover that Hayes had been the one who attacked Williams, with the pair feuding until their steel cage match on April 16 which marked Hayes’ final appearance in NXT.
