A new vignette shown on the October 12th episode of NXT 2.0 has revealed that the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi, ‘Solo Sikoa’ will be arriving on the show soon.
Joseph Fatu signed with WWE in August alongside Bobby Steveson, brother of Olympic Gold Medallist and fellow recent signee Gable Steveson, and Joshua Dawkins, nephew of NBA legend Darryl Dawkins.
Announcing his signing WWE wrote:
Joseph Fatu of Las Vegas is the younger brother of SmackDown Tag Team Champions Jimmy & Jey Uso and the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi. Beyond being a member of one of sports-entertainment’s most decorated families, the 6-foot-2, 240-pounder also played football in college.
On the most recent episode of NXT 2.0 a new vignette aired promising that Fatu, now known as Solo Sikoa, would be appearing on the show soon. In the clip, the mysterious figure boasts of his prowess as a street fighter.
“You won’t find my wins and losses in any record books, those live on the streets. I was left to fight alone when I was 15 years old, and that’s when I became Solo Sikoa. Street Champion, of the Island,”
Elsewhere on NXT Carmelo Hayes claimed the NXT North American Championship in shocking style.
In the main event of the show Isaiah “Swerve” Scott took on Santos Escobar. Earlier in the show Scott’s partners in Hit Row had been abducted by Legado del Fantasma in an effort to leave him alone in his match with Escobar.
However, Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams came to ringside to help the champion after Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde interfered.
After Scott picked up the win, Hayes and Williams entered the ring to celebrate, but Hayes attacked the champion cashing in his 2021 Breakout Tournament contract.
