Paul Heyman has reacted to Solo Sikoa’s shocking NXT North American Title win on last night’s NXT.
Solo Sikoa made his main roster WWE debut at the recent Clash At The Castle event, interfering in the main event match to help Roman Reigns retain his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship over Drew McIntyre.
Many fans believed this signalled the end of Sokoa’s NXT run, but the newest member of The Bloodline returned to the brand this week and also managed to capture his first Championship in the company.
Carmelo Hayes was set to defend his NXT North American Championship against a challenger that was to be decided by the viewers. Von Wagner, Joe Gacy, and Wes Lee were the three options, with Wes Lee winning the vote.
However, Hayes and Trick Williams attacked Lee backstage, rendering him unable to compete. This led to Solo Sikoa making a shock appearance at the end of the show to challenge his former rival and take his NXT North American Championship in the process.
Following the show, Paul Heyman tweeted about Sikoa’s victory and declared The Bloodline as the most dominant faction in wrestling history.
“The #Bloodline = the most dominant faction in sports entertainment / pro wrestling history!
NEW @WWENXT North American Champion @WWESoloSikoa
