Carmelo Hayes don’t miss, as evidenced by not just the fact that he had himself a damn fine main event North American championship match against Pete Dunne on NXT 2.0 this week but by the fact that he won said match clean.
I say clean because Trick Williams, much as I love him, is horrible at interfering in matches. He’s really gotta work on that aspect of his game.

That is, of course, the match type NXT first introduced the title with, when Adam Cole defeated a field that included EC3, Killian Dain, Ricochet, Lars Sullivan, and Velveteen Dream. A lot has changed in just a few years, and there’s plenty of young talent itching to establish themselves on the big stage.
