Solo Sikoa hands over NXT North American Title, new champion to be crowned in Ladder match at Halloween Havoc

Shawn Michaels brought Solo Sikoa and Carmelo Hayes together to inform them both that the North American Title is now vacant

New North American Champion to be crowned at Halloween Havoc.

Kicking off the 9/20 episode of WWE NXT was Carmelo Hayes and North American Champion Solo Sikoa being brought into a room by Shawn Michaels.

Michaels informed Sikoa that his match with Carmelo last week was not one he was sanctioned to be in. Hayes was originally supposed to defend the title against Wes Lee, which was a fan vote option and when Hayes and Trick Williams ambushed Lee, Solo stepped up and went on to become champion.

He told Sikoa that his title win cannot stand and wished him well on his career on the main roster. Hayes then expected to get the title back, but Michaels informed him that along with five other wrestlers at Halloween Havoc, they’ll compete for the title in a Ladder match.

Sikoa had one successful defense of the title and that was on the 9/16 episode of SmackDown against Madcap Moss.
