Carmelo Hayes is the new NXT North American Champion after tonight’s NXT In Your House match. Hayes defeated reigning champion Cameron Grimes with the help of Trick Williams at tonight’s pay-per-view.
Cameron Grimes won the NXT North American Championship on April 2 2022 at NXT Stand & Deliver. He defeated Carmelo Hayes, Santos Escobar, Solo Sikoa and Grayson Waller in a fatal-five way ladder match. He did successfully defend his title several times since then but tonight’s one-one-matchup ended up in his Hayes’ favor.
This is Carmelo Hayes’ second reign as the NXT North American champion. Hayes’ first reign began in October 2021 when he cashed in his Breakout Tournament briefcase against Swerve Strickland.
