The Bloodline has gained a new member in the form of NXT star Solo Sikoa!
In front of a partisan home crowd Drew McIntyre went to war with Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
The bout was a slow building affair as the British crowd appeared to get into the head of Reigns. However, the Tribal Chief hasn’t been World Champion for two years for nothing. Reigns fought back, standing on the brink of more than one occasion, but before long the clash was simply a battle of wills.
With the two men exhausted, Austin Theory ran in to try and cash-in his Money In The Bank briefcase, only to be thwarted by a right hand from Tyson Fury who was at ringside.
Back in the ring the battle continued and despite taking a tremendous beating that included two Spear’s, McIntyre had Reigns pinned following a Claymore. But the fairy-tale ending wasn’t meant to be. A hooded figure pulled the referee out of the ring denying McIntyre victory. The mystery man quickly revealed himself to be NXT 2.0 star, and Anoa’i family member Solo Sikoa.
As Sikoa got in McIntyre’s face, Reigns was able to hit another Spear and score the victory.

Sikoa is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi and the brother of the all-conquering Usos. The star only began wrestling in 2018, debuting in NXT back in November 2021.
Speaking in June Sikoa revealed that he almost missed out NXT 2.0 altogether in order to join up with his brothers and Roman Reigns on SmackDown.
The star hasn’t wrestled since defeating Von Wagner on August 2nd in a brutal Falls Count Anywhere Match.
