In the wake of Roman Reigns' staring defeat to Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 40, The Bloodline finds itself sailing in unchartered waters under new leadership with Solo Sikoa. That seismic shift in control put Paul Heyman, along with fans everywhere, grappling with a whole lot of uncertainty about the future trajectory for this storied faction and, on a larger scale, the WWE landscape as a whole.

With Sikoa at the helm, very little time has been wasted in flexing his muscles by remodeling The Bloodline's roster, controversially cleaning out his brother Jimmy Uso before recruits Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa into this fray.

It is this reconstituted lineup that pits many observers at odds over whether it measures up to the legacy left behind by Reigns; Sikoa doesn't let these opinions deter him from steering this group through these turbulent waters.

Reigns' Uncertain Return

The question looms over WWE regarding Roman Reigns' return date not being given. By the time he finally makes that inevitable return, Reigns will be jumping into a faction vastly different from the one he left, marinated in new kinds of uncertainty that even Sikoa wrestles with.

This has been most obvious in a recent episode of WWE's Friday Night SmackDown, where only the mention of Reigns by Paul Heyman can elicit a vague response from Sikoa, baking more fuel into the fires of speculation about the internal dynamics and future conflicts within The Bloodline.

What all of this ultimately means for The Bloodline's immediate future remains up in the air, and it's what the WWE Universe and even those closest to the situation can't help but notice for where it might ultimately be headed.

Perhaps more dramatically than anybody could have fathomed, only increasing the internal power struggle within The Bloodline is Roman Reigns being on the outside looking in. The elevation of Solo Sikoa into power marks one of the most defining eras in his career.

It's an era whole of bravado decisions, specifying just how one ought to lead one's life. Despite the controversies and comparisons to the regime of Reigns, Sikoa shows unmatched confidence in his path forward, insinuating he is prepared to face and maybe defy his former leader if need be.

This growing tension could well be the setup needed for a dramatic falling-out that would define how The Bloodline is remembered in terms of legacy and overall contributions to the emerging WWE narrative.
