Former WWE star Tommy Dreamer recently spoke about a tense moment between Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa this week on SmackDown.
Roman Reigns was accompanied by Sikoa and Paul Heyman to the ring this past Friday. Before The Tribal Chief could complete his promo, he was interrupted by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. The Usos attacked the current tag team champions, leading to Reigns losing his cool over Jimmy and Jey. Just as he was leaving, Reigns inadvertently bumped into Sikoa, leading to a tense glance between the two.
On a recent episode of the Busted Open podcast, Dreamer mentioned that Sikoa is the Enforcer of The Bloodline, and it’s natural that Reigns was uncomfortable after bumping into him. The hardcore wrestler detailed that no one could challenge Reigns, and building up Sikoa as a babyface was not a bad idea.
“If Solo is the heater, everybody should be afraid to piss off the heater. Just let him be him.” Dreamer continued, “Solo isn’t there yet, but Solo will be ready. I have gone on record and said I don’t know who is the person to defeat Roman Reigns, but what if it was Solo? I think WWE could get him this hot. Like Umaga, Umaga was so hot that if he would have turned babyface, the sky would have been the limit.”
The ECW veteran mentioned that WWE could transform Sikoa into a massive star and have him succeed Reigns as the leader of The Bloodline.
“I mean, Solo could be the eventual head of The Bloodline. They have other members of their family. I mean, there are so many different places you can go,” Dreamer added. [21:07 – 22:13]
