Carmelo Hayes told Shawn Michaels – “I want to be a top guy eventually”

Last updated

WWE NXT 2.0 Superstar and NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio.

The Superstar of the developmental brand discussed several topics during his time on the show, including how he told Shawn Michaels that he planned on becoming a top guy on the brand.

‘I had a conversation earlier with Shawn (Michaels) about how I want to be a top guy eventually,’ Hayes began. ‘He was like, ’˜alright, we’ll give you the ball and you can run with it. We’ll get you where we need to get you.’’

‘I told Shawn that I see myself as a top guy” Hayes continued. “I told him, ’˜take me there.’ And I think that (conversation) is what gave him the belief that, ’˜OK, this kid is a little different.’

“And on top of that, my mindset is every time I step out, it is WrestleMania. I’m not one of those guys who’s just happy to be here” Hayes revealed.

“I truly, truly want to be great ’“ through my work, actions, attitude, and training. I’m just trying to work harder than everybody else, and I think it’s showing.’
