Rikishi approves of solo sikoa

The world of WWE is no stranger to unexpected twists and turns, as Roman Reigns recently delivered a bombshell on SmackDown that left fans buzzing with anticipation. In a surprising announcement, Reigns declared Solo Sikoa as the one to step into his shoes as The Tribal Chief if anything were to happen to him. This revelation not only caught the audience off guard but also stirred up mixed emotions, as evident in Jimmy Uso's less-than-enthusiastic response.

Roman Reigns, the powerhouse of WWE, underwent a significant transformation in 2020 when he embraced his heel persona. This marked the beginning of his reign as The Tribal Chief, a title he earned shortly after aligning himself with the cunning Paul Heyman. Within days of this alliance, Reigns clinched the Universal Title and formed The Bloodline, a stable that etched its name in WWE history.

One of the prominent moments in The Bloodline's saga was Solo Sikoa's entrance. His impactful assistance to Reigns in defeating Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle last year hinted at a promising future within the stable. Fans, ever since, began speculating about Sikoa's potential to become the next Tribal Chief.

Next in Line: Roman Reigns

The recent episode of SmackDown was not just about in-ring action; it carried a weighty declaration from Roman Reigns. He publicly named Solo Sikoa as the heir to The Tribal Chief's legacy. Roman Reigns took to Instagram to solidify his statement, boldly declaring Solo Sikoa as "next in line."

What added more weight to this announcement was WWE legend Rikishi's acknowledgment on his Instagram story. The approval from a Hall of Famer only intensified the speculation around Solo Sikoa's potential role as The Tribal Chief.

Under Roman Reigns' leadership, The Bloodline has become synonymous with dominance in WWE history. Their impact as a stable, both in and out of the ring, has left an indelible mark on the wrestling landscape. The prospect of Solo Sikoa continuing this legacy raises questions about how The Bloodline will evolve in the coming months.
