Wade Barrett recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to discuss a wide range of topics.
During it, the WWE NXT color commentator discussed what has impressed him about Carmelo Hayes and why he thinks he’d enjoy a match with him.
Hayes will defend his North American Title against Ricochet at Sunday’s Worlds Collide event. Here’s what Barrett had to say (via Wrestling Inc.):
“I’d say someone who’s really caught my eye though is Carmelo Hayes. He’s the North American Champion down here. A lot of talk about bangers these days in terms of matches; he’s [the] ‘NXT’ guaranteed banger kind of guy.”
“I always had a good time when I was in the ring with some of the smaller, faster-moving, high-flying guys that could add that element of physical excitement that maybe I was a bit restricted in because of my own size. … I think that Carmelo Hayes exemplifies that. I think that he’d be a lot of fun to get in the ring with.”
