Besides being a platform where people can communicate and share their opinions on different things, social media can be a very strange place at times. That said, one of the strangest incidents recently happened when cricket and WWE fans bumped into each other. It was in context with Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya and WWE wrestler Carmelo Hayes, with both sharing facial similarities. Carmelo’s photos went viral on Twitter as fans expressed their excitement.
Hayes took note of the same and took to Twitter and praised Hardik.
“@hardikpandya7 has me trending in India. Much love,” Carmelo tweeted.

Here are some of the responses:
“After seeing Venky (Venkatesh Iyer) all round performance, Hardik Pandya Joined NXT changed his name to Carmelo Hayes. Good luck,” one fan tweeted.

Hayes, the current NXT North American Champion, recently defeated NXT Cruiserweight Champion Roderick Strong to unify the titles.
The Cruiserweight Championship was immediately halted and Hayes was recognized as the final champion. He has also crossed over 100 days as the NXT North American Champion.
Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya is currently not part of the Indian team. The all-rounder sees full fitness for the start of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season.
IPL 2022 is set for March 26, and Hardik will helm one of two new franchises: Gujarat Titans.
Hardik was drafted by the Titans, along with Indian batter Shubman Gill and Afghan spinner Rashid Khan, ahead of the IPL mega sale earlier this month.
