It can make for a big moment when someone who has established themselves elsewhere comes into the company, especially if they have a prior connection. That might be what we are going to be seeing again soon.

According to, Hikuleo is expected to be leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling and coming to WWE after finishing his time with New Japan over the weekend. While not confirmed, it is believed that he will be part of the Bloodline stable. Hikuleo is the brother of Tama Tonga and the brother, through adoption, of Tonga Loa. According to Fightful Select, WWE had previously attempted to sign Hikuleo but an internal hiring freeze led to Hikuleo re-signing with New Japan, with that deal either recently or imminently ending.

I want to see where this is going, and that isn’t even including the return of Roman Reigns, who will shake things up even more.

What do you think of the change? Where do you see the Bloodline going? Let us know in the comments below.
