The Bloodline Saga on SmackDown

In the latest episode of Wrestling Uncensored, Dave and Ben Simon dove deep into the dramatic developments surrounding The Bloodline on WWE SmackDown. They previewed this weekend’s showcase at Forbidden Door 2024. The segment showcased a significant evolution in the storyline, with Solo Sikoa taking center stage and making bold moves to assert his dominance.

The Ascendancy of Solo Sikoa

The episode started with Solo Sikoa, accompanied by Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa, and Jacob Fatu. Notably, Jacob Fatu’s entrance emphasized his unique status within the group. Unlike Tama and Tonga, who appeared as backup muscle, Jacob Fatu was presented as an independent entity, standing apart with his distinct attire and demeanour.

Dave highlighted the power dynamics, stating, “Jacob Fatu seems like his own entity. He’s wearing different clothes, standing in the back, unlike Tama and Tonga, who are dressed the same”​​. This presentation mirrors Solo’s initial portrayal within The Bloodline, adding layers to the ongoing saga.

Solo’s demand for acknowledgment as the new tribal chief set the stage for a pivotal moment. He brandished the ceremonial red lei, traditionally worn by Roman Reigns, and handed it to Paul Heyman, putting him in a precarious position. The tension was palpable as Heyman grappled with the demand. Dave described Heyman’s turmoil: “He’s distraught, clearly torn, and feeling bad.”

Ultimately, Heyman’s refusal to acknowledge Solo led to a brutal assault, starting with Solo’s Samoan Spike and culminating in a devastating powerbomb through the announce table. The brutality of the attack on Heyman, especially in Madison Square Garden, a venue steeped in WWE history, was shocking and underscored Solo’s ruthless ambition.

The Aftermath and Future Projections

Ben noted the impact of this brutal segment on the perception of Solo’s faction, “To made me, like, take a solo in that group more seriously. I didn’t think they were gonna go in this direction”​​. The beating of Heyman elevates Solo as a formidable force and sets the stage for Roman Reigns’ eventual return and potential retribution.

Speculation is rife about how Roman will respond. Dave posited several intriguing scenarios, including the involvement of other WWE superstars like Cody Rhodes, Sami Zayn, and even The Rock. He theorized, “Maybe Roman comes back, and he takes a beating for a while, and then The Rock comes out, and he’s like, listen, Jabroni, I’m here to help Roman.” This adds a tantalizing layer of anticipation as fans speculate who might align with Roman in this escalating conflict.

One of the standout matches discussed was Bryan Danielson versus Shingo Takagi in the opening round of the Owen Hart Cup tournament. Dave expressed keen interest in this bout, noting Danielson’s winless streak in 2024 and the potential narrative arc. “Bryan has not won. He’s wrestling Shingo Takagi… I’m very interested in that match to see if Bryan can win a match this year?”​​. Ben added that a victory could propel Danielson into a title shot at Wembley, crafting a compelling storyline for AEW’s future events.

These matches are not only significant for their star power but also for the potential to deliver match-of-the-year calibre performances.
