Yes another one. Over the last few years, the Bloodline has dominated WWE in a way few stables have ever approached. The team has run roughshod over the company, mainly on the strength of Roman Reigns. However, Reigns is currently on a hiatus after losing the WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 40, leaving the team in a bit of a weird place. Now things have changed all over again.

The opening match of Backlash 2024 saw the Bloodline face Kevin Owens and Randy Orton. Late in the match, Kevin Owens had Tama Tonga covered but a mystery man interrupted the cover. The man would be revealed as Tanga Loa, Tonga’s brother, who helped the Bloodline win the match. Loa then posed with the Bloodline, suggesting that he is the newest member of the team. Loa and Tonga have teamed together around the world as the Guerrillas of Destiny, primarily in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

It was a big match. Check out what happened, including the debut and what is coming to WWE:

Opinion: This is a big one as the Bloodline civil war continues to take shape. While Loa coming in and becoming the newest member is interesting, it begs the question of where Reigns is in all of this. That is exactly the story WWE seems to want to tell and they are making it work like few others could. Loa had a great debut and now he has the chance to push things even further forward in a huge story.

What did you think of the debut? How will Loa do in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
