WWE officials have been actively discussing for Rikishi to return to the WWE Universe and be involved with The BloodLine Family saga WWE sources tell SW.
Rikishi (Solofa Fatu Jr.) is the real life father of The USO’s (Jay Uso & Jimmy Uso). Rikishi is a 2015 WWE Hall Of Fame inductee and had a prestigious career in WWE.
• 1x WWF Intercontinental Champion
• 2x World Tag-Team Champion (W/Samu and W/Rico)
• 1x WWF Tag-Team Championship (W/Scotty 2 Hotty)
Rikishi was also revealed to be the mystery driver that ran over Stone Cold Steve Austin at the 1999 Survivor Series pay-per-view.
The famous Attitude Era storyline was meant to write off Stone Cold Steve Austin from WWE television due for a year due to a real life neck injury that required surgery. The original plan was for The Rock to be revealed as the mystery driver. WWE later changed it to Rikishi and it was for The Rock he attacked Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Now in 2023 almost 24 years later, Rikishi could be involved with WWE’s hottest storyline again as WWE officials have mentioned Rikishi to return to the WWE Universe and be involved in the BloodLine family saga.
The idea is that Rikishi will intervene on behalf of the Samoan Dynasty to try and resolve the dispute between Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa and The USO’s.
The BloodLine Saga is the hottest storyline in pro wrestling today and Rikishi returning to the WWE Universe and be involved with The BloodLine would be an exciting moment.
