Solo Sikoa Reveals Scrapped WWE Main Roster Plans
Solo Sikoa almost went straight to the main roster
Solo Sikoa is currently away from The Usos and The Bloodline on WWE TV, competing as a lone wolf on the NXT developmental brand. That wasn't the original plan, though, he revealed to BT Sport.
"It's easy to go back to 'I'm their brother, I'm their family.' At the end of the day, it's almost like I don't want to be referred to as their brother or their cousin. I want people to recognise me for me. Before I started and debuted on TV, creative was like, 'We'll just put you with your brothers.' Then the next meeting was, 'Let's see what you can do on your own.' That was fire where it was, Okay, this is my time. This is my time for fans to recognise me instead of 'you're Jimmy and Jey's (brother),'" Sikoa said.
"Before, I had black hair and we all did look alike, but I was bigger, we had different shapes. Nine months later, people know Solo. 'That's Solo.' I was like, 'Okay, that'll be cool,' because that's when they started saying 'We The Ones' and were throwing the ones up, but I was like, I don't know man, I still feel I'll be in their shadows. I need to step out and do me. The world needs to see me. They already seen them and they already seen what they can do. It all worked out just fine."
Sikoa made his NXT debut in late 2021 and he has been a featured performer on the Tuesday night show. He was recently involved in the NXT North American Title picture.
