Carmelo Hayes Discusses How Much Of His Wrestling Persona Is The Real Him

Carmelo Hayes spoke about this topic during his recent appearance on Out of Character with Ryan Satin including his WWE NXT career. Here are the highlights: 

How much of his real self is in his wrestling persona:

“It mostly is me. It’s one of those things that as I’m progressing, I’m just kind of figuring I’ll take things from my real personality and put it into I guess, my character, Carmelo Hayes. But, I don’t really do a gimmick. I’m not a gimmick guy. It’s just my personality. I don’t talk how I talk on TV in real life, but if I could, I would talk like Carmelo Hayes, but I don’t. So that’s more or less the reality of what I do and who I am. I believe in myself like I do on TV in real life but I just don’t talk like that.”

Why he is not on social media often:

“There was a point where I tried to be, before I even got to WWE, where I tried to be a little bit more personal, but then after that, I just decided that there’s really no reason to open up too much as far as me personally and stuff. It’s almost like if you know me, you know me, and I want you to know me for what I’m doing on TV and things like that. But people have asked and people want to know. I thought about it. I just really don’t care. Here’s another thing. If I wasn’t doing this, I probably wouldn’t have social media. I don’t feel the need for validation. I don’t feel the need for any of that. I just want to work hard and do what I do. I’m passionate about what I do. I’m very passionate about what I do and this comes before anything, honestly. So, I mean, as far as personal life stuff goes, I mean, I really have no care to even, you know, just start posting like, ‘Hey, I’m at the beach. Hey, I’m doing this. I’m doing that.’ But I’m normal, man. I just do all that regular stuff. I just don’t talk about it and post about it.”
