Rising star Carmelo Hayes, found himself on the receiving end of a roast after a verbal slip-up during a backstage segment.

During the segment, Hayes interrupted an interview with LA Knight, asking “Why would LA wanna face you?” Knight quickly capitalized on the mix-up, calling out Hayes for getting the name wrong. Though Hayes didn’t back down in the moment, he later tweeted about the incident, writing “Oops I got a name mixed up on Live Tv. Maybe I should ‘Go bACk To nXT’.”

By joking that he should return to the NXT developmental brand, Hayes demonstrated a willingness to poke fun at himself and own up to the on-air flub. This comes in contrast to his typical portrayal as a confident, self-assured Superstar who believes he is destined for the top of the WWE SmackDown roster.

Despite the mistake, Hayes remains determined to make his mark on the blue brand. In a recent social media post, he warned the SmackDown locker room, saying “Smackdown doesn’t know yet, it’s time to get my chips up. #WhatAChampionshipNeeds #Smackdown.” The post included a fan-made graphic highlighting Hayes’ accomplishments from his time in NXT, indicating he believes he has the pedigree to compete for championships on the main roster.
