• Sami Zayn Reacts To Solo Sikoa No Longer Being Champion

On last week’s episode of NXT 2.0, Bloodline member Solo Sikoa replaced Wes Lee in the main event and went on to defeat Carmelo Hayes to win the NXT North American Championship.

Then on last week’s SmackDown, he brought the Title to the blue brand and successfully defended it, when he defeated Madcap Moss.

On this week’s NXT, Shawn Michaels said that Sikoa wasn’t chosen to compete in the NXT North American Title match last week and stripped Solo of the Title.

HBK announced that at Halloween Havoc, there will be a Fatal 5-Way Ladder Match to determine the new NXT North American Champion.

Carmelo tweeted the following after HBK’s decision:

Solo tweeted the following about no longer being the North American Champion:

“I made the NA title more valuable in a WEEK then any title reign in NXT. 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.”

After Solo was stripped of the Title, Sami changed his profile photo on Twitter:

Zayn later tweeted:

“I’ve just been informed about Solo Sikoa relinquishing the NXT North American Title. The jovial expression in my delightful #NewProfilePic has nothing to do with this news, it’s simply bad timing. Just got off the phone with my dawg & he’s doing well. Bigger, better things ahead!”

He also tweeted:

“Things got a little tense but The Bloodline is doing just fine. Please respect our privacy at this time.”
