This week, Roman Reigns dropped a major reference involving the Wild Samoans on WWE SmackDown. The Tribal Chief gave a shout-out to the group during his in-ring promo segment with The Usos, Paul Heyman, and Solo Sikoa.

For those unaware, The Wild Samoans are three-time WWF World Tag Team Champions. The brothers, Afa and Sika, belong to the illustrious Anoa’i family of Samoan wrestlers and promoters.

Sika is also Roman Reigns’ real-life father.

On WWE SmackDown, the champion referred to the Wild Samoans as the greatest tag team of all time. Roman Reigns said his upcoming tag team match with Solo Sikoa at Night of Champions will be a tribute to the WWE Hall of Famers.

“At Night of Champions, Solo and I do what we always do,” Reigns said. We represent, we hold it down for The Bloodline. I dedicate that victory and our tag team championship title reigns to the greatest tag team of all time, Afa and Sika… The Wild Samoans.”

The Wild Samoans came out and acknowledged Roman Reigns as the head of the Tribal after he defeated Jey Uso at the 2020 Hell in a Cell premium live event.
