The New Bloodline Has Formed

This past Friday night, a new member of The Bloodline emerged. It was supposed to be a one-on-one match between Cody Rhodes and Solo Sikoa, but it quickly escalated into an all-out brawl.

It wasn't too far into the match before both Tongans, Toma Tonga and Tonga Loa, started jumping the American Nightmare, making it a three-on-one assault. Luckily for Rhodes, Randy Orton and a hobbled Kevin Owens were able to make their way ringside. When we thought all was calm and settled for the trio, one man made a stunning debut.

Rhodes, Orton, and Owens all stand confidently over a seemingly delirious Solo. I'm not kidding; I thought he had legitimately lost his mind. Little did I know he had an ace up his sleeve in the form of another Samoan Psychopath. This faction was already dangerous, and crazy enough, now you want to add this guy? It will be interesting to see if other family members are in the wings at Sikoa's disposal.

Shake's Take:

I can't be the only fan who was growing a little bored of the new look Bloodline. Since Roman's hiatus after Mania, the Bloodline story wasn't doing much for me. After Friday, I will be right back on The Bloodline bandwagon.

I have seen clips of Jacob Fatu on the internet for a while, and seeing him make a surprise debut in such spectacular fashion was special. He didn't need the theatrics seen earlier in the week by The Wyatt Sicks. He showed up, kicked the ass of three bonified superstars in this business, and made it look routine.

HUGE frog splash to Cody Rhodes.

All of this with the thought in the back of my mind that someday soon, the real Tribal Chief will return. Roman Reigns surely can't be pleased with the direction his family is taking. When he returns, the thought alone of the pop gives me chills as I type. When Paul Heyman said The Bloodline story was only in the bottom of the third, I thought he was bluffing. Buckle up, folks. We're still in the long game.
