Not everyone can say that. There are a lot of different aspects to being a successful wrestler but one of the most important is being able to talk. At some point wrestlers need to find a way to communicate with fans and the best way is often through a microphone. If a wrestler can talk well, it is going to make ufp for a lot of their other problems, and one wrestler’s talking abilities have earned him a special privilege.
NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes was a guest on Busted Open Radio where he revealed that he is allowed some creative control in his promos. Hayes is given bullet points, but most of the words and phrases he uses are his own.

Opinion: This is something that NXT and WWE have needed to do for a long time now. If they want to open things up to another group of fans, they need to offer something different.

Hayes might not be the big answer to the problem, but trying something out is a good way to start.
What do you think of Hayes? How will his North American Title reign go? Let us know in the comments below.
