Solo Sikoa: Paul Heyman Is “Like My Uncle”


Since making his main roster debut at WWE’s Clash at the Castle pay-per-view event, Solo Sikoa has been on a tear. He helped Roman Reigns retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in Wales. He was on the winning side at Survivor Series: WarGames. And he’s recently put Matt Riddle on the shelf following a post-match beatdown.

But even with Roman at the “head of the table,” The Bloodline still rely on the counsel of their Wise Man, Paul Heyman. Sikoa spoke about what Heyman means to the group, and to him personally, on a recent episode of Superstar Crossover.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

His relationship with Paul Heyman: “He’s like my uncle, man. First of all, he’s been around my family for over 50 years. He’s been around Roman’s dad, he was around my dad [WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi]. I don’t know if a lot of people know this, but my dad was one of the first Paul Heyman guys when they started in WCW because he was their manager. Now he’s with Roman and my brothers, and now with me. There’s a lot of things that he’s taught and is still teaching me.”

What Heyman means to The Bloodline: “There’s just so many things that I can’t even… he does tell me, ‘This is the place where you go be a big superstar, make some money, and take care of your family.’ That’s one of the things that he does tell me. He’s real, man. That’s what I love about Paul. They don’t call him the ‘Wise Guy’ for nothing. He knows the game, he knows the ins, he knows the outs. He’s been around the family. He knows our family. He knows how we move, he knows how we work. So I’m very blessed, especially coming up and only being here for two months. I’m very, very happy to be around him and to learn from Paul Heyman.”
