WWE star Solo Sikoa was surprisingly stripped of his North American Championship in the latest episode of NXT.
He captured the title last week by dethroning Carmelo Hayes in the show’s main event. Hayes was originally scheduled to defend the title against Wes Lee, but the latter was not medically cleared to compete after being injured by Carmelo and Trick Williams in the dressing room.
Solo Sikoa made an unexpected return and instead fought for the title. The former recently joined The Bloodline in the main roster and looks set to stay there.
On this week’s episode of NXT, the show opened with Shawn Michaels, Solo Sikoa and Carmelo Hayes in Michael’s office. The Heartbreak Kid announced that Sikoa had to vacate the NXT North American Championship after being disallowed for the match last week.
He then shook hands with the former champion and wished him well in the main lineup.
It was also announced that there will be a ladder match at Halloween Havoc in six weeks, where a new champion will be crowned. This means Carmelo Hayes has an opportunity to reclaim the gold.
