n a riveting development on WWE SmackDown, LA Knight and Solo Sikoa found themselves embroiled in the ongoing feud with Roman Reigns. This isn't their first dance, though. Solo Sikoa made a stunning entrance into NXT by ambushing Grayson Waller at the 2021 Halloween Havoc event, a segment also involving LA Knight.
Fast forward to now, all three superstars share the SmackDown stage, adding complex layers to their evolving storylines. Solo Sikoa, who was called up to the main roster in September 2022, proved instrumental in Roman Reigns' victory over Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle.
Since then, he's been an indispensable component of The Bloodline. Meanwhile, LA Knight, originally introduced as Max Dupri in 2022, took a quick detour with the Maximum Male Models before reclaiming his LA Knight persona. Grayson Waller debuted on SmackDown in May 2023, forging an alliance with Austin Theory.
LA Knight's Uncertain Fate
Speculation is rife over whether LA Knight can unseat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Wrestling veteran Vince Russo recently weighed in on the topic on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW.
Russo voiced skepticism, citing WWE's tendency to keep popular stars like Knight "over" even in defeat. According to Russo, this could risk Knight's momentum, a fate previously suffered by Ricochet. As for future matchups, LA Knight remains focused on his burgeoning feud with Roman Reigns, leaving Solo Sikoa momentarily without a rival.
Yet, murmurs within the wrestling community suggest a tantalizing possibility—Solo Sikoa may square off against John Cena at Crown Jewel 2023. Cena has been tangling with The Bloodline in Roman's absence, primarily engaging with Solo and Jimmy Uso.
With the upcoming Saudi Arabia premium live event on the horizon, the wrestling world is abuzz with anticipation. What's next for LA Knight and Solo Sikoa? Will Knight finally topple Roman Reigns, or will the Tribal Chief continue his reign of dominance? And could Solo Sikoa find himself sharing the ring with the iconic John Cena? As WWE Crown Jewel 2023 approaches, these questions loom large, and only time will reveal the answers.
