Solo Sikoa made his main roster debut at Clash at the Castle premium live event, where he helped Roman Reigns to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Sikoa then became the enforcer of The Bloodline.
On the December 5th episode of Monday Night RAW, The former NXT North American Champion brutally attacked Matt Riddle after Riddle & Owens lost to The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles. Solo Sikoa attacked Riddle with a Samoan Spike and running hip attack, which was a tribute to the late Umaga.
During an interview with New York Post, Solo Sikoa revealed who told him to use the Samoan Spike.
“The idea came from Hunter. Hunter pulled me aside. I think it was Paul Heyman’s idea, too, so Hunter wanted to run it by me. He goes, “I know your uncle was a big part of your guys’ family. I know what he meant to you guys. I wanted to ask you if you would be OK using the spike?” I was like, I don’t know. I kind of want to stay away from it because that’s his thing. And he was like, “I know he passed away and yesterday was his anniversary,” which was a Sunday and the next day was Raw. He goes, “I think it will be cool if you pay a tribute to him on TV by using the spike.” I was like, “You know what man? Yeah, let’s do it.”
Sikoa also said that he will use Samoan Spike as one of his finishing moves going forward.
