Paul Heyman Doesn’t Acknowledge Solo Sikoa, Gets Attacked By The Bloodline On WWE SmackDown

Paul Heyman said Solo Sikoa was not his “Tribal Chief”, and he paid for it.

The Bloodline held a Bloodline Acknowledgment Ceremony on the June 28 episode of WWE SmackDown. This came amid weeks of tension between Solo Sikoa, who has taken over as the stable’s new leader in Roman Reigns’ absence, and Paul Heyman.

Sikoa demanded to be acknowledged on Friday night. Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa, and Jacob Fatu did as they were told. However, in an act of defiance, Heyman said he acknowledged that Sikoa was not his “tribal Chief.” Sikoa then dropped Heyman with a Samoan Spike.

The Bloodline proceeded to brutally gang up on Heyman. They slammed him through the broadcast table, and the group stood tall at the end of WWE SmackDown.

Update: WWE later showed Heyman being loaded onto a stretcher and into an ambulance after the attack.

The Bloodline is set to face Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens at WWE Money in the Bank.
