Solo Sikoa carries himself as a stoic soldier for the Bloodline but remains grateful and eager to learn amidst his new ventures on the WWE main roster.
The former NXT North American Champion officially earned his main roster call-up during WWE’s Clash at the Castle pay-per-view, aiding his cousin Roman Reigns to victory. In the months that followed, Sikoa emerged as a significant player in the Bloodline, alongside Reigns, The Usos, and Sami Zayn. Additionally, he received some guidance from the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion’s special counsel, Paul Heyman.
With over 30 years in professional wrestling, Heyman acquired a wealth of knowledge of the business. Now, Heyman lends his expertise to many of the WWE Superstars, including the Bloodline. In a recent appearance on Superstar Crossover with Josh Martinez, Solo Sikoa described his experience working with Paul Heyman, who’s known the Anoa’i family for multiple decades. He’s like an uncle. First of all, he’s been around my family for over 50 years,” Sikoa explained. “So he’s been around Roman’s dad. He was around my dad.”
Heyman also previously served as the manager for Solo’s father Rikishi during their time in WCW. Now, Heyman stands as a integral representative of the Bloodline. “There’s a lot of things that he’s taught me and he’s still teaching me,” Solo said. “There’s just so many things. He does tell me, ‘this is the place where you can go be a big superstar and make some money to take care of your family.’ That’s one of the things he does tell me.”
Sikoa continued, expressing his gratitude for Heyman. “He’s real. That’s what I love about Paul. They don’t call him ‘the wise guy’ for nothing. He knows the game, he knows the ins and outs. He’s been around the family. He knows our family, he knows how we move and how we work. I’m very blessed, especially coming up and only here [on the main roster] for two months. I’m very happy to be around and to learn from Paul Heyman.”
