John Cena to corner Carmelo Hayes for match, Cody Rhodes making ‘major announcement’ on 10/10 WWE NXT

The 16-time WWE World Champion is coming to NXT. 

Newly crowned NXT Champion Ilja Dragunov and North American Champion Trick Williams shared a moment in the ring on the 10/3 WWE NXT. This led to former champion Carmelo Hayes joining them. The focus shifted over to Williams’ title defense against Dominik Mysterio and after Mysterio made a comment about Williams still being in Hayes’ shadow, Williams declined Hayes’ offer to be in his corner for the match. 

Afterwards, Hayes ran into Bron Breakker backstage and Breakker encouraged him to use the rage that stems from his loss at No Mercy and take that out on everyone including Trick Williams. Carmelo said that was not happening, but he did request a match against Breakker for the 10/10 NXT and cornering him will be 16-time WWE World Champion John Cena. 

Following that announcement, it was unveiled that Cody Rhodes is going to make a ‘major announcement’ on next week’s NXT. 

Earlier in the show, it had been confirmed that Asuka will be going one-on-one with Roxanne Perez on 10/10. NXT is set to go head-to-head with AEW’s Title Tuesday edition of Dynamite.
