And the now finest prize in NXT is around my waist. At Halloween Havoc, I brought it. Becky sure as hell brought it, too.

And you all have seen my story, and every bit of it is true. But I know that I’m not the only woman that dreams of holding this. And I know that locker room is packed full of hungry competitors that want to take this from me. And I know that all of their eyes are set on The Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline. Can I help you, Xia?

Ilja Dragunov Promo
Last week, I needed to use every gram of energy to dispatch Carmelo Hayes. I could barely put one foot in front of the other. That’s how drained I was from that trilogy. He’s a warrior. I look very fondly on our several battles. But as I turn the corner, I get dropped by a force last week. Baron Corbin, you saw a little window of an opportunity and you took it. But you know, my eyes are the window to my soul. So, take a good look. We have met before, but with this title on my shoulder, I’m a different man. So, Baron, if you remember one thing, remember this, the only person that can slay the dragon is the dragon himself.

Carmelo Hayes, Trick Williams and Lexis King Segment
Carmelo Hayes: Okay, alright, man, let’s cut to the chase. This thing is bigger than the NXT Championship. This is about my friend; this is about my brother. Trick, come out here, man, let’s talk about it. Trick, before you say anything, man, I just want to say that I understand exactly why you are upset. Look, man, you got blindsided, and the opportunity of a lifetime got taken away from you. I understand why you’re feeling the way you are. But you need to understand, man, that roadblocks are a part of this journey sometimes. Look, man, for example, look at our journey. I needed someone to have my back and who did I call? You. Put you on game. Championships after championships, I shared that glory with you. My best friend. Without Trick, there would be no Melo. So, before you start accusing me.
Trick Williams: Exactly, Melo, that’s exactly why I’m having a hard time trying to figure this whole thing out. Because over the last two years, I’ve done nothing but put the Trick Melo Gang, first. Your success had been my success. Every single time you won a championship, man, I was so proud of you, I felt like a won a championship myself. And I heard all the critiques, I took all the beat downs on the side. I did whatever it took so that whenever Melo shoots, he didn’t miss.
Carmelo Hayes: But Trick, it worked. You and me, we were like Shaq and Kobe out there, man. We were like Jordan and Pippen, man. When I won, you won.
Trick Williams: Exactly, Melo, whenever you won. It’s easy to talk like that when you got the ball and you’re taking all the shots. But what about now that Trick has the ball? Now that Trick is taking the shots. Why can’t you be there for me like I was there for you? Or better yet, here’s the better question, the question the whole world wants to know, the question I need to know.
Carmelo Hayes: Did I do what? Did I believe in you? Yes. Before Trick Williams became the hottest star in NXT, before the whoop that chants, I was there for you, Trick. Look, man, you need to understand that. I knew you were destined for greatness from the beginning, from when the NFL didn’t work out, all of that. Listen, everything Cena told you; I told you months ago. I knew you were destined for greatness. I knew you had the potential to be a once of a lifetime performer. So, does that answer your question, Trick?
Trick Williams: Melo, you know, I just wanted to do my own thing. I wanted to have my moments. I want to have my main events. You had your main events. Why couldn’t you see that I wanted mine, too? I can’t help but think about this. When you needed me, I had your back. Whenever you needed me, I was there. When you needed the fancy entrances, I did everything I could to make each entrance the best in all of WWE. But where are you when I need you? When I get jumped? When I get attacked? I didn’t see what happen, all I know is that you weren’t there.
Carmelo Hayes: So, you’re telling me that you didn’t see who attacked you?
Trick Williams: Look, all I know is that I got hit in the head and I went down. When I look at the referee beside me, all I heard was your voice. Boom, they put me in the ambulance. The only thing I could think about was my shot to go after the NXT Championship is gone.
Carmelo Hayes: Hold on, run that back. You’re saying you didn’t see who attacked you?
Trick Williams: What’s your mind on? Are you here? Oh, yeah, it’s whatever Melo wants to talk about. Exactly. So, let’s clear all the ice, let’s address the elephant in the room. Melo, did you attack me?
Carmelo Hayes: You want the truth?
Lexis King: Well, well, well. Ladies and gentlemen, we have quite the paradox here, don’t’ we? We have the friend who got brutally assaulted. And we have the first man that was at the scene of the crime, his best friend. Am I wrong, Melo?
Carmelo Hayes: Look, I know you’re new here, but do all of us a favor, shut the hell up and mind your business.
Trick Williams: Real talk, it doesn’t concern you. Mind your business while grown folks are talking.
Lexis King: Gentlemen, relax, I’m trying to help you get to the bottom of this. And it seems to me like everybody knows who did it, don’t they? Of course, it could’ve been someone else who did it? Someone who’s new here and is trying to make an impact. Someone dark and dirty like you’ve never seen. Someone with a mind so twisted, with thoughts so unclean. Now, ask yourself, Trick, are you sure it was Melo that assaulted you?
Trick Williams: I told you once, now get out of here while grown folks are talking.
Lexis King: I want you to say it. I want you to say what everyone in this building is thinking. You have been sucking your thumb for weeks.
Trick accidentally punches Carmelo Hayes. King scurries out of the ring. Trick helps Melo get back on his feet. Trick hugs Melo as the show goes off the air.
