Tonight’s pre-taped edition of NXT begins with an appearance by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.
In a backstage segment, Michaels appeared alongside Solo Sequoia and Carmelo Hayes to make a huge announcement reveal.
According to Michaels, because Solo participated in a match he was not allowed to attend, the results did not last.
It was then that Shawn Michaels forced Solo Sequoia to give up the North American Championship.
For his part, Sequoia was very accepting of the situation and seemed pleased to give Melo the best. Bonus, he had a really good assistant for Bloodline’s press conference with Logan Paul!
Solo went on his way with the good news from Michaels, wishing him all the best in his future career on Raw or SmackDown.
After Hayes believed that the title would go back to him immediately, the Heartbreak Kid dropped some mythological wisdom, saying:
“Whenever you think you’re bigger than business, business will slap you and that’s what it did.”
At Halloween Havoc, Hayes and four other men who qualify for NXT over the next several weeks will compete in a ladder match to determine the new NXT North American Champion.
