Rikishi On Tama Tonga And Tonga Loa: I Couldn't Wait For Them To Come To WWE, They're Doing Great

Rikishi approves.

Rikishi, the father of The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) has often weighed in on the developments of The Bloodline story in WWE. A new chapter recently began, as Solo Sikoa took over following Roman Reigns' loss at WWE WrestleMania XL. He kicked out Jimmy Uso and has added Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa to the group.

Speaking on RIKISHI FATU OFF THE TOP, Rikishi shared his thoughts on Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa arriving in WWE and joining The Bloodline.

“Those two kids, Tama and his brother, Tonga Loa, they’re [related] to the family, as far as with Uncle Haku and so forth. These kids, I couldn’t wait for them to come to WWE. They’ve done so much out there, the hard work and building their brand out there in New Japan, that it was awesome to see them finally come home. The Bloodline, the WWE is home. To be able to see them come and not just go right into an angle, they’re only put there for the simple fact that they belong there. Nothing else, nothing more. You got Roman that’s out the picture now, Jimmy’s out the picture now. Now here comes Solo and his crew, what they like to call The Bloodline 2.0, the brothers, Tama and Tonga Loa, they’re doing a great job. They both look great, they look fresh. So nice to see fresh faces out of there, being involved in The Bloodline, and family at that," Rikishi said.
