Solo Sikoa isn’t being deterred after being stripped of the NXT North American Championship during this week’s episode of WWE NXT 2.0.
Last week, Sikoa won his first title in WWE by defeating Carmelo Hayes, after attacking Wes Lee, the original opponent for Hayes as voted on by fans.
During this week’s show, Sikoa was stripped of the title by Shawn Michaels, who argued that Siko’s match was invalid as he had not been voted by the fans to face Hayes.
Reacting to his title loss, Sikoa praised his short reign, which saw him defend the title on last Friday’s SmackDown.
I made the NA title more valuable in a WEEK then any title reign in @WWENXT. 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.

A new champion will be decided in a Ladder Match at the NXT Halloween Havoc event next month.
