Carmelo Hayes to Confront Grayson Waller on "The Grayson Waller Effect" Ahead of Championship Showdown.Before clashing for the "WWE NXT" Championship, Carmelo Hayes and Grayson Waller will verbally face off on one of the company's leading talk shows – "The Grayson Waller Effect." WWE announced earlier today that the two rivals will share the ring, with reigning champion Hayes appearing as a special guest on Waller's show during the April 18 edition of "NXT." WWE tweeted, "BREAKING: Ahead of their Championship Match at #NXTSpringBreakin', NXT Champion @Carmelo_WWE will join @GraysonWWE as a special guest on 'The Grayson Waller Effect' THIS TUESDAY!"
Waller Emerges as Number One Contender
The following week, Waller is set to challenge Hayes for the "NXT" Championship at "NXT" Spring Breakin'
Hayes claimed the title at "NXT" Stand & Deliver earlier this month, and WWE soon organized a fatal four-way match between Dragon Lee, JD McDonagh, Waller, and Duke Hudson to determine the number one contender. As Lee seemed on the verge of victory with a cover on Hudson, Waller delivered a Stunner to Lee, securing his pinfall over Hudson and winning the match.
Waller's upcoming title shot against Hayes marks his third "NXT" Championship match this year, having previously faced the now-former champion, Bron Breaker, twice. Following his loss of the title at "NXT" Stand & Deliver, Breakker has experienced a significant character transformation.
