Roman Reigns and his trusted Bloodline Enforcer, Solo Sikoa, walked into Night of Champions with an enormous opportunity. They challenged Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn for the Undisputed WWE tag team championships. Reigns had this big chance of holding four titles at the same time on the night he touched 1000 days as the Undisputed WWE Universal champion.

However, the monumental night for Reigns turned into a disaster. A spot in the match saw The Usos coming out to help their family. As they tried to knock out Sami Zayn with a pair of Superkicks, they accidentally got Sikao. This enraged Roman and he started yelling and insulting his cousins. But the moment he turned around, Jimmy Uso met with a shocking kick him.

Roman Reigns has a big celebration ahead

Despite his dominant Bloodline broken into pieces, Roman Reigns continues to hold the WWE landscape with an iron fist. He has achieved an incredible feat, that even many of his legendary peers did not. Furthermore, this Friday on SmackDown, The Head of the Table will appear to celebrate his 1000 days as champion.

Moreover, Reigns is also expected to address the situation concerning The Usos. Fans know him for being unforgiving to outsiders. So it would be interesting to see how Roman would deal with this situation. Especially when now his enemies are his family.

But there is one man still unaddressed. Solo Sikoa. Ever since he came to the main roster, he has been under the direct wing of Roman Reigns and got ample opportunities to stand his own ground in front of the WWE universe.
