2 Reasons Why Carmelo Hayes Should Become The Next WWE United States Champion

Carmelo Hayes is the NXT Superstar, who has earned the ticket to join the race to become the next WWE United States Champion. The reigning champion Logan Paul will likely put his title on the line against the winner of this eight-man tournament at Royal Rumble on January 27, 2024.

The tournament features seven Superstars from SmackDown and one NXT Superstar. From the blue brand, fans saw Bobby Lashley and Santos Escobar advance to the second round by defeating Karrion Kross and Dragon Lee, respectively.

The next set of first-round matches will happen soon. Kevin Owens will battle former US Champion Austin Theory, while Grayson Waller will take on Carmelo Hayes.


In this listicle now, we will look at the two reasons why Carmelo Hayes should not only win the tournament but become the next WWE United States Champion.

1. Carmelo Hayes is the future of WWE

For the fans who watch NXT regularly, Carmelo Hayes is a household name. He initially became popular because of his similar look as Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya, but Hayes then established himself as a top wrestler.

After some memorable feuds in NXT, Hayes is ready for the main roster now. The US Championship tournament is the perfect platform for Hayes to debut. A defeat after a fighting match will be a good way, but winning the tourney and beating Logan Paul will be excellent for the NXT star.


2. Carmelo Hayes can become the workhorse United States Champion in WWE

WWE is in desperate need of a fighting champion on SmackDown. The tag team championships are no longer exclusive to the blue brand, and WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns and US Champion Logan Paul are part-time wrestlers.

The WWE Women’s Champion IYO Sky is a heel. Hence, the brand needs a fighting champion, who carries the brand by delivering spectacular matches on a weekly basis.



Vinay Chhabria is a cricket and WWE enthusiast who supports Roman Reigns and Gujarat Titans. He has been following cricket for the last 15 years and WWE since 2016.
