Solo Sikoa is prominently featured on WWE TV as a member of The Bloodline. He debuted at Clash At The Castle to help his cousin Roman Reigns retain his undisputed titles in Wales. Since then, he has been a key part of their family faction and is regularly involved in entertaining segments on SmackDown.
But, before his main roster debut, he spent a year in NXT. He established himself as a star on the developmental brand but didn’t capture a title until after he had already made his main roster debut. Solo answered then North American Champion Carmelo Hayes’ open challenge and claim the title, though his reign only lasted a week before he was stripped of the gold. Sikoa spoke on Superstar Crossover to reveal that there were plans for him to pursue the North American and potentially NXT Championship before his main roster move.
“I felt like, before I got called up, there were a lot of plans to go after [the NXT North American Championship], to go over Carmelo Hayes and maybe Bron Breakker, you know, generation vs. generation. I just felt like it worked out just fine. Just letting everybody know that I never lost the North American Title. I had to give it up, so that’s different things. I just felt like the plans worked out just fine because I’m here and I’m going after another title, hopefully soon,”-Solo Sikoa.
Solo has made his title intentions clear here, especially given how he never lost the North American Title. It’s unclear whether he will chase main roster gold but right now he is focussed on helping The Bloodline.
