• Solo Sikoa Comments On Relinquishing The NXT North American Championship
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.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 22, 2020) – Old School Tag Team Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2020, we lost Old School Tag Team Legend Road Warrior Animal at the age of 60 due to a sudden heart attack.
As one half of The Road Warriors, arguably the greatest but certainly the most dominant Tag Team in pro wrestling history, with his long-time Tag Team partner Road Warrior Hawk, they won World Tag Team Championships in many major territories, such as Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the American Wrestling Association (AWA) and the World Wrestling Federation.
In 2011, The Legion of Doom was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by fellow NWA/WCW/WWF Legend ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes.
