Hikuleo’s contract with New Japan Pro-Wrestling has come to an end, and he is now reportedly set to join WWE in the near future.

An earlier version of this article stated that Hikuleo is Samoan but he is in fact Tongan. We regret the error

The Bloodline Could Be Set For A New Member

According to Cassidy Haynes of BodySlam.net, Hikuleo’s time with NJPW came to an end at the recent NJPW Dominion event on June 9th, meaning he is now a free agent. It is now believed that he’s set to join WWE.

Considering he’s the younger brother of WWE Superstar Tama Tonga, he is presumably set to join The Bloodline at some stage when he arrives. While there’s no date on when he’s expected to debut in WWE, the fact he’s not tied to any company means that he could be brought in at any time.


Twist in WWE’s Bloodline Storyline: Is a New Member on the Horizon?

A subtle hint was dropped during SmackDown on Friday that suggests a major twist is coming to The Bloodline.

Post-WWE WrestleMania 40 The Bloodline has been completely changed, with Roman Reigns having yet to make an appearance since his loss to Cody Rhodes. In his absence Solo Sikoa has taken charge of the group, bringing in Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa to be by his side, with Paul Heyman retaining his position.

The group has been more aggressive, feuding primarily with Kevin Owens, but adding further members would only strengthen the faction further. That’s where Hikuleo could come in, while the arrival of Jacob Fatu is also expected imminently, with the former MLW star likely to be part of the faction as well.

Hikuleo Has A Lot Of People Talking About Him

Hikuleo is a second-generation wrestler, and as the son of Haku, he certainly has a reputation for his hard-hitting approach. He’s managed to get the wrestling world talking about him since his debut back in 2016, and he’s found himself in some prominent positions during his stint with NJPW.

The 33-year-old is a former Bullet Club member, and was originally trained at the Team 3D Academy by WWE Hall Of Famers, The Dudley Boyz. Since then he’s gone on to win the Strong Openweight Championship, and the IWGP Tag Team Championships, while being a two-time Strong Openweight Tag Team Champion.

Some fans might recognize Hikuleo from his appearances with AEW, where he’s stepped through the forbidden door to represent NJPW against some of Tony Khan’s talents. But despite having wrestled for AEW, it appears WWE is his chosen destination for his next steps as a performer, following the Guerillas Of Destiny as fans now await to see what’s next for him.
