NXT ON USA: NXT North American title vacated, ladder match at Halloween Havoc

Posted on 9/21/122 by Colin Vassallo

The NXT North American title was vacated on NXT last night
by Shawn Michaels on the basis that Solo Sikoa was not an
original choice in last week’s fan voting so technically he
was not supposed to wrestle Carmelo Hayes.

Hayes and Sikoa appeared in a backstage segment with HBK
where they were informed about the situation. Hayes
requested the title back but Michaels declined, saying he
has to win it back at Halloween Havoc.

A five-man ladder match will determine the new champion at
Halloween Havoc and Hayes automatically qualifies for it.
Eight other individuals will participate in qualifying
matches to see who will advance to the match.

Sikoa is now part of the main roster on Smackdown and is not
expected to be part of NXT moving forward, which made it
difficult to carry an NXT title.

“I made the NA title more valuable in a WEEK then any title
reign in @WWENXT,” Sikoa wrote on Twitter. “Brought it to
Smackdown with me and defended it. Keep in mind i never lost
it. There is always more gold out there and i got my eyes
set on it already.”

In a sarcastic tweet replying to Sikoa, Hayes responded
with, “Thank you for your service.”
