Tension to rise between Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams due to the WWE NXT title match against Ilja Dragunov?

The storyline between Williams and Hayes is getting stronger day by day. A few weeks ago, the 29-year-old star was brutally assaulted in a backstage segment, and many assumed that the Killanova was behind it.

However, Carmelo Hayes denied the accusations. As of now, the former NXT Champion and Williams are set to face LWO's Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde in the semi-finals of the Dusty Cup.

On this week's NXT episode, Hayes and Williams promised to reach the Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals together and win the tournament at Vengeance Day. Then, Dragunov disrupted the segment.

During the segment, HIM seemed visibly scattered with his thoughts when the 29-year-old star was announced to face Ilja Dragunov for the NXT Championship on January 16.

Only time will tell if Carmelo Hayes will finally turn heel on Williams at WWE Vengeance Day and cost him the title match.
