NJPW Star Expected in WWE; The Bloodline Expected To Expand By Another Member


-- WWE's Bloodline stable has evolved over the years and continues to undergo changes immediately in the aftermath of WrestleMania with Roman Reigns and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson both on hiatus, allowing Solo Sikoa to assume a leadership role. In recent time, the group has seen the addition of Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa to the team and Jacob Fatu is still waiting in the wings having not yet debuted for WWE.

-- You can add another name that will likely be joining the group in the coming weeks and months and that is former NJPW star Hikuleo, who has previously been rumored to be coming to WWE once his NJPW deal expired in 2024. According to bodyslam.net, that has indeed happened and sources below that Hikuleo is definitely on his way into the Bloodline after wrapping up his commitments with NJPW Dominion on June 9.

-- The actual WWE debut of Hikuleo, who is the brother of Tama Tonga and the cousin/adopted brother of Tonga Loa, is unclear because as noted earlier, Jacob Fatu is also signed by WWE and hasn't made his debut though there has been some talk that he may not initially join the Bloodline. However, whatever creative is being planned for him is being kept amongst a tight group of people that includes Triple H, Reigns, Paul Heyman and a few others.
