Rikishi Gives Honest Take On Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa In WWE

Tama Tonga Solo Sikoa Tonga Loa WWE

The Bloodline is going through some changes in WWE but one of the family’s elders has now had his say on Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa infiltrating the group.

After a tough WrestleMania 40 as Roman Reigns lost his WWE Universal Championship and Jimmy Uso lost to his twin brother Jey, Solo Sikoa rang the changes in the group.

Reigns has been absent since his loss leading Sikoa to assume control and his first act was to kick Jimmy Uso out of the group, leaving his older brother to be attacked by the debuting Tama Tonga. But even more was to come.

At Backlash France Tama Tonga and Solo Sikoa teamed up to face Kevin Owens and Randy Orton in a wild no disqualification match. However, Sikoa had another trick up his sleeve as another ex-NJPW star in Tanga Loa – now known as Tonga Loa in WWE – came to The Bloodline’s rescue to help them pick up the win.

Rikishi Thinks Bloodline 2.0 Is Doing A Great Job In WWE

Speaking on his Rikishi Fatu Off The Top podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi – the father of The Usos and Solo Sikoa – gave his take on Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa joining WWE and the family group, and he couldn’t be happier about both:

Those two kids, Tama and his brother, Tonga Loa, they’re [related] to the family, as far as with Uncle Haku and so forth. These kids, I couldn’t wait for them to come to WWE. They’ve done so much out there, the hard work and building their brand out there in New Japan, that it was awesome to see them finally come home.

The Bloodline, the WWE is home. To be able to see them come and not just go right into an angle, they’re only put there for the simple fact that they belong there. Nothing else, nothing more. You got Roman that’s out the picture now, Jimmy’s out the picture now.

Now here comes Solo and his crew, what they like to call The Bloodline 2.0, the brothers, Tama and Tonga Loa, they’re doing a great job. They both look great, they look fresh. So nice to see fresh faces out of there, being involved in The Bloodline, and family at that.

Tama Tonga will have the chance to follow in his father Haku’s footsteps and become a king in WWE when he faces Randy Orton in the SmackDown semi-final of the King of the Ring tournament.
