Solo Sikoa has delivered a strong message following his shock appearance at Clash at the Castle.
Solo Sikoa made a surprise appearance during the main event between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle in Cardiff when he appeared near the end of the match to deny Mcintyre the win and help Reigns pick up the victory.
It seemed as if The Scottish Warrior was set to triumph until Sikoa appeared ringside as a hooded figure pulling out the referee before the NXT2.0 star then revealed it was him under disguise. With McIntyre distracted, The Tribal Chief took advantage and hit the spear to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
The impending aftermath remains to be seen but it appears as if the Anoa’i family member has been added to The Bloodline faction. Ahead of this week’s Smackdown, and in response to a video posted on the WWE on Fox Twitter account, Sikoa broke his silence for the first time since his main roster debut. Taking to his social media, he posted:
“🩸comes first. Always.”
Solo Sikoa is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi and the younger brother of Jimmy and Jey Uso. The star only began wrestling in 2018, debuting in NXT back in November 2021. Speaking in June, Sikoa revealed that he almost missed out on NXT 2.0 altogether in order to join up with his brothers and Roman Reigns on SmackDown.

As it currently stands, Roman Reigns has been Universal Champion for a mammoth 736 days. Despite the impressive stat, Reigns was not in a celebratory mood following his successful title defence at the Principality Stadium.
Still firmly in character, Reigns walked into the post-show press conference in a thoughtful mindset, giving little away with a firmly stoic demeanour. After sitting down, Alex McCarthy of the Daily Mail asked Reigns how it felt to walk into such a cauldron of an atmosphere.
After a long pause Reigns said he would rather “you do, what they wouldn’t do,” before standing and challenging McCarthy to acknowledge him. The reporter responded that he acknowledged him, as Reigns muttered “you’re damn right” as he grabbed his title belts and headed for the door.
