Solo Sikoa arrived on the main roster at WWE Clash At The Castle where he emerged to help Roman Reigns defeat Drew McIntyre and retain his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
From that moment forward, Sikoa has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Reigns acting as an enforcer for The Bloodline. While Reigns continues to call the shots, Sikoa has established himself as a formidable force on Friday Night SmackDown defeating the likes of Sheamus and Ricochet.
“Anyone Who Tries To Step Up To Roman Reigns Gets Knocked Down” – Solo Sikoa
Solo Sikoa’s impressive form has led fans to ponder the prospect of of a showdown between the young star and the leader of The Bloodline. Speaking in a new interview with Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda Wrestling the possibility of a match between the pair came up. In theory if Solo won the Royal Rumble that would set up a match with Reigns as he’s the Undisputed World Champion.
However, Sikoa suggested that he might eliminate himself from the match to avoid the potentially messy situation.
“Well I might not win the Royal Rumble. I might eliminate myself. I don’t know, you never know. If that opportunity presents itself, Maybe. But I know my role as the enforcer and that it’s to protect — anybody that tries to step up to Roman Reigns, gets knocked down,”
Roman Reigns is set to be back in action at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5th when he takes on Logan Paul. Sikoa suggested that Paul is set to find out the hard way that he’s not up to the level required to overthrow the dominant champion.
“Hey man, two years of dominance versus two matches, come on, man. He knows where he’s at. He’s in the deep end with the biggest shark in the ocean. It’s either sink or swim, man, and we’re gonna find out what he’s made of. I know he’s training. I know he’s down there working hard, but this isn’t just one of those things where you can walk in the park. Nah, he’s gonna find out the hard way, just like I did. They threw me in the deep end in The Bloodline to see if I could hold my own, and I’m doing it. Now let’s see an outsider, if he can do the same,”
Roman Reigns recently celebrated 200 days as WWE Champion. The Tribal Chief has held the title since defeating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38. Reigns has held the Universal Championship for a staggering 786 days and counting.
