WWE fans applaud Trick Williams as NXT star protects Malik Blade from scary injury: “Saved that man’s life”

Trick Williams, the former NXT North American Champion, is a standout performer on the NXT roster. Williams won the 2023 Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge at the NXT Deadline and is waiting for his opportunity to reclaim the NXT North American Champion, which he lost to Dominik Mysterio.

After today’s NXT episode, WWE fans have raised their support for Trick Williams after he potentially saved Malik Blade from a major injury during a tag team match.

Fans react to Trick Williams saving Malik Blade

The competition for the Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic continued on today’s episode of NXT, a tournament to determine the best tag team in NXT. In the third match of the tournament, Malik Blade and Edris Enofé competed against Trick Williams and the former NXT Champion, Carmelo Hayes. Hayes presence for the match was not confirmed till the end of the match due to an injury he faced on the last episode of SmackDown during a match against Austin Theory.

In the later part of the match, Malik Blade had an upper hand against Williams after making a tag from Enofé. Blade tried to take out Williams by diving over the top rope, but he landed on the wrong spot. Williams, who was outside the ring, reacted quickly and saved Blade from a serious injury by catching him in mid air.

This was unexpected from Williams, as he is often shown as a heel and arrogant wrestler. Williams clearly helped Blade land on his feet, saving him from a head injury. After this, the WWE fans started praising and appreciating Williams for his actions. Fans commented, “Trick saved that man’s life”. Williams was also praised by Triple H for his performance and he picked Williams as a member for DX group.
