Carmelo Hayes & Ilja Dragunov Contract Signing
Carmelo Hayes: Ilja, you and I know, what happened last week, there’s really nothing for us to talk about. So let’s just sign this contract and we’ll see each other at No Mercy.
Ilja Dragunov: Did you realize at that moment, you’re always the wrong person at the wrong time? I’m fully convinced that you’re just the wrong man for the NXT Championship.
Carmelo Hayes: Okay, hold on. Wrong person at the wrong time, kind of like you at Great American Bash. Look, I didn’t plan for it go down like that. I didn’t call that shot. But, Ilja, it was what it was. I didn’t walk into Great American Bash thinking that I can beat you, and now I’m walking into No Mercy knowing that I’m going to beat you and I will beat you.
Ilja Dragunov: You see, Melo, you just explained yourself in front of me and that hurts. And I can clearly see the struggle outside of your confidence. So at No Mercy, you shall know, real unbearable pain when you face the dragon spitting fire.
Carmelo Hayes: You’re talking about me struggling with my confidence. Okay, for the first time ever, I struggled with my confidence, but only for a minute and then I checked myself. But you want to talk about unbearable pain. Unbearable pain is you believing your own hype. The hype of you believing that you beat me at Great American Bash, when everyone here knows that you did not.
Ilja Dragunov: These people, they know. And deep inside of yourself, you know as well that I did. And on Saturday, it’s my destiny and I won’t stop. I’m not talking about some type of prophecy, I talk about destiny, so let me ask you a question. What if you throw everything you have at me, and I don’t stay down? Wait, what do you do when you shoot your best shot, and I don’t know, you miss? Did you prepare yourself to answer these questions?
Carmelo Hayes: Well, Ilja, the reality is that being NXT Champion, it’s not about how much pain you can endure. It’s not about how many veins you can pop out of your head. It’s about being undeniable. It’s about being HIM. And one thing I want you to realize, Ilja, I’m not like any of these guys that you beat before. I’m not Wes, Oro, Trick. No, no, listen, I will be the one to push you to your limits at NXT No Mercy because I’m the NXT Champion for a freaking reason. And at No Mercy, we answer those what ifs.
Ilja Dragunov: You will do nothing, because you can’t do nothing. I’m done with letting destiny slip through my fingers. So you want to push me beyond my own limits? Great. Because everything you will find there is a nightmare that you won’t forget for the rest of your life. And when I get crowned, NXT Champion, you realize that your dynasty has fallen. Long Live The ZAR.
Carmelo Hayes: Ilja, now that I signed this contract, I want you to understand something. This NXT Championship, it’s bigger than you and I. When I carry this championship, it’s a beacon of hope for those who look like me, for anyone whoever shoot their shot in the dark and prayed it would go in. Do I think you can win the NXT Championship and carry the responsibilities that come with it? Absolutely. But do I think you can do it better than Carmelo Hayes? Absolutely not.
