Trick Williams Biography:
Birth Name: Matrick Belton
Age: (May 26th, 1994)
Weight: 240 pounds
Place of Birth: Columbia, South Carolina

Last night on NXT, Trick Williams defeated Grayson Waller in the main event to retain his number-one contender for the NXT Championship. Williams is today’s Wrestler of the Day in honor of this big win.
Born in South Carolina, Matrick Belton played college football at Hampton and the University of South Carolina. Unlike many professional wrestlers, Belton has spent no time on the indies or with any other promotions. After a brief stint in the Spring Football League, Belton’s football career came to an end when he signed a developmental deal with WWE.
Now under the ring name Trick Williams, our Wrestler of the Day made his debut as an ally of Carmelo Hayes. Despite spending nearly two years partnering with Hayes, the two men went their separate ways hoping to advance their careers. Now on his own, Trick won his first title when he defeated “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio for the North American Championship at NXT No Mercy. Unfortunately, Williams made history by becoming the shortest reigning North American Champion with a reign of just three days.
Recently, Williams and his former friend Carmelo Hayes have been butting heads over the NXT Championship. In response to costing him a title shot, Trick interfered in Hayes’ championship match to cost Hayes the title. In the future, Williams is looking to win the NXT Championship after winning the Iron Survivor Challenge at NXT Deadline.
