Solo Sikoa SmackDown or Raw imminent


Recently a report revealed that WWE was considering a call-up of NXT's Solo Sikoa to Raw or SmackDown, and now we have a new update on when that could actually take place. GiveMeSport's Louis Dangoor is reporting that he's been told Sikoa will be on the main roster after SummerSlam on July 30th most likely than not. It has actually not been pointed out if he will be paired with The Usos or if he will be on his own when Raw and SmackDown fans first see him, and we'll keep you posted as we find out more.

There's likewise been no word on which brand he would transfer to, however if he were to be part of The Usos (who are his siblings in reality) and The Bloodline, he would probably transfer to SmackDown. Technically Undisputed Champions become part of both brand names, so he might also be moved to Raw and that way there's constantly a presence there. If Sikoa is moved into The Bloodline's storyline, it might provide the best new aspect to shake things up.

Sikoa debuted for NXT in late 2021 and ever since has progressively gone up the ranks. He went into the Title image this year, competing in a Five-Way Ladder Match for the NXT North American Championship against Carmelo Hayes, Grayson Waller, Cameron Grimes, and Santos Escobar. Grimes would beat Hayes to become the new North American Champion, however Sikoa would get a second chance at the Title.

Later in the year, he would complete against Grimes and Hayes in a North American Title Triple Threat match, and Grimes would end up retaining. Since then he's teamed up with Grimes and Apollo Crews against Hayes and Waller, and throughout the most recent House Show circuit he dealt with Hayes in a North American Title match however Hayes kept.

The next sensible step would be either to dismiss Hayes for that Title or move his focus to something else, though if WWE knows they desire him on Raw or SmackDown already he might end up just bypassing the NXT Title picture progressing to jump over to one of the other brand names. We'll simply have to wait and see what occurs and if anything at The Great American Bash sets the stage for Sikoa to jump to a different show.
