Roman Reigns might not have been at WWE Backlash but he's making it up for it in a big way on May 27.
The Tribal Chief's triumphant return on the May 12 episode of sent shockwaves throughout the wrestling community. This marked Reigns' first appearance in Friday Night SmackDown after the draft as he marked his territory ahead of the Night of Champions. But, while most expected Reigns to try and contend for the new title belt, Reigns' return was the talk of the town for another reason - his decision to team up with Solo Sikoa to form a formidable tag team duo.
Together, the real-life cousins will try and conquer the Unified WWE Tag Team titles, which are currently held by Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.
Reigns, a powerhouse in the wrestling world, has amassed a treasure trove of accolades over the past decade, most of all his most recent run as the top heel of the WWE.
As the Unified WWE Champion, Reigns is the de-facto final boss of the WWE, even though this wasn't the initial plan. His stable, The Bloodline, has held the top belts in the WWE for the better part of the past year until Jimmy and Jey lost at this year's WrestleMania. Since then, the real-life twins have been on the hunt to try and prove their worth to The Head of the Table. But, after multiple attempts to try and recapture the championships, it's clear that Reigns has lost his trust and are now looking to Jimmy and Jey's younger brother, Solo Sikoa, to help him out.
The family duo's chemistry will be on full display in front of an expectedly strong crowd at the Jeddah Super Dowm in a few weeks.
We'll see if they can live up to expectations and solidify their status as a powerhouse tag team by winning against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, who, in the past few weeks, have found themselves an unlikely friend in the Original Bro, Matt Riddle.
Of course, the main highlight of the event will still be the World Heavyweight Championship match between AJ Styles and Seth Rollins. Cody Rhodes is also going to try and capture lightning inside a bottle twice against Brock Lesnar.
