Solo Sikoa debuts at WWE Clash at the Castle, helps Roman Reigns retain title

The Usos' younger brother looks to be the newest member of The Bloodline.

The Bloodline appears to have a new member.

Saturday's Clash at the Castle pay-per-view concluded with NXT wrestler Solo Sikoa making his main roster debut and helping Roman Reigns retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Sikoa pulled the referee out of the ring just as McIntyre was about to get the victory.

McIntyre hit a spear on Reigns near the end of the match and then connected with a Claymore. The referee was about to count to three but then got pulled out of the ring by Sikoa. McIntyre went to go after Sikoa, but that allowed Reigns to hit a spear and pin McIntyre to win the match.

Sikoa is the son of Rikishi and the younger brother of Jimmy & Jey Uso. Until Sikoa's appearance, Reigns didn't have anyone at ringside with him at Clash at the Castle. The Usos didn't appear at the PPV after getting laid out by McIntyre on Friday's SmackDown. Paul Heyman hasn't been on WWE television since Brock Lesnar gave him an F-5 through the announce table at SummerSlam.

Sikoa (real name Joseph Fatu) signed with WWE in August 2021 and made his NXT TV debut later that year.

There was a moment during Reigns vs. McIntyre where Austin Theory tried to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Boxer Tyson Fury, who was sitting at ringside, knocked Theory out with a punch before he could cash in.

After the main event, Fury went face-to-face with Reigns before the two shook hands. The PPV then ended with Fury and McIntyre singing "American Pie" by Don McLean together in the ring and McIntyre singing some of "Don't Look Back in Anger" by Oasis. McIntyre promised that he'll never give up.

Saturday was the 734th day of Reigns' ongoing title run.
