Those are both big. We are in a weird place when it comes to the Bloodline, as Roman Reigns is missing in action following his loss at WrestleMania 40. In his absence, Solo Sikoa has taken over the team, with Special Counsel Paul Heyman not being sure about the whole thing. This has not stopped Sikoa though, and this week he did two things that were both rather important.

This week’s SmackDown opened with the Bloodline making two announcements. Under Sikoa’s orders, Tama Tonga was officially named the new Right Hand of the Bloodline, which was a role previously held by Jey Uso. Second, also as ordered by Sikoa, Tonga Loa is now officially a member of the team. Heyman made both announcements before having to thank Tama and Loa for helping him with Kevin Owens the previous week. There is no word on when Reigns is expected to return to WWE.

They had a busy night. Check out what the Bloodline did this week:

Opinion: This is getting more and more interesting every week, as the reaction when Reigns returns to deal with all of this is going to be incredible. That is a great thing to have hanging over the whole thing, as Reigns is the kind of a force that cannot be underestimated. Sikoa taking over the team is a big change of pace and it is going to have quite the impact later on, which is what we are seeing set up here.
