He was asked about the things he gets to learn from his illustrious faction members. Sikoa responded, “You know a lot of people would do anything to be in my position to you know, to get taught by these guys man. Like my brothers you know the best tag team at WWE ever and Roman Reigns the greatest Champion man and he’s still going. “

Speaking about Sammy brought a smile to Sikoa’s face as he went on to add, “Sammy you know, he’s the student of the game and I like to call him, he’s like a Kobe Bryant man, of wrestling. His mind man, it never stops working.”

Sikoa seems to put his money where his mouth is as he has shone from the start of his career. He has looked unfazed against some established superstars and put on dominant displays against them. The wrestler has already dispatched well-known names such as Ricochet and Sheamus in singles matches.

He also has a handful of tag team victories under his belt.

Zayn made his main roster debut against then-US Champion John Cena in 2015. He has gone on to win the prestigious Intercontinental Championship thrice in his career.
