  • The Bloodline adds new member, Tanga Loa, in chaotic Street Fight victory against Randy Orton and Kevin Owens.
  • Tanga Loa pulls official to stop count after Owens delivers suplex into chairs.
  • Trio beats down opponents with Samoan Spike finisher, leaving questions on group’s future growth.

The Bloodline has grown and added a new member. On Saturday, during the firs match of the night, Tanga Loa (Tama Tonga’s younger brother) joined Tama and Solo Sikoa to help defeat Randy Orton and Kevin Owens in a Street Fight.

When the match got out of hand early, SmackDown GM Nick Aldis came to the ring and told all four men that if they really wanted to fight, he would make the match officially a Street Fight. That opened the door to a new member joining the group and helping the group. This wasn’t the first tease either, as Big E referenced Tanga Loa on the Backlash Kickoff Show.


Jey Uso Foreshadows Lots More Family Members Joining The Bloodline

Even though he’s not a part of the group anymore, Jey Uso doesn’t think The Bloodline is going anywhere.

The match itself was chaotic. All four men battle everywhere, with the Lyon, France crowd eating up every move and making the match even more entertaining. It was when Owens got Tama Tonga in the ring, set up four chairs, and delivered a middle rope suplex into the chairs. That should have been enough to secure the pin, but Tanga Loa pulled the official out of the ring to stop the count.

The new Bloodline trio beat on Owens and Orton, eventually getting the win after Sikoa hit a Samoan Spike on Owens.

Who Is Tanga Loa?

Tanga Loa is the younger brother of Tama Tonga and son of Haku. He began wrestling in WWE’s developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, in 2009. He moved to the main roster in 2011 as Camacho, teaming with Hunico. After leaving WWE in 2014, he wrestled in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) as Micah.

He then joined NJPW as Tanga Loa, teaming with his brother as Guerrillas of Destiny in Bullet Club. They became seven-time IWGP Tag Team Champions. He also competed in Ring of Honor, where they held the ROH World Tag Team Championship.

How Big Will The Bloodline Get?

Is the group going to continue to grow? Many thought Jacob Fatu would be the newest member of The Bloodline, which didn’t happen on Saturday. That doesn’t mean it won’t. The new Bloodline is three members deep and it’s not clear where Roman Reigns stands in all of this. If Fatu eventually joins, is Roman going to be happy about this? Is there anything he can do about it? It’s already clear that Paul Heyman has lost control of the group, which now looks to be led by Solo Sikoa.
