SmackDown’s creative team was reportedly impressed with Williams’ reception on last week’s show, and a top WWE star praised his positive attitude and skill set backstage.

In addition to his NXT Title match, Williams and Hayes will compete in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic finals against Baron Corbin and Bron Breakker this Sunday.

Flair, who currently works in AEW, posted this footage and said Cody obviously wants to be like him.
