58-Year-Old Legend Hints at WWE Return to Replace Paul Heyman as The Wiseman; Plans on Making a Change to The Bloodline

There’s a lot of uncertainty brewing in The Bloodline on WWE SmackDown. Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa don’t seem to be on the same page, which could lead to issues down the line. But what if the new Tribal Chief removes The Wiseman from the group?

Solo’s father, Rikishi, was recently asked about the possibility of replacing Heyman in The Bloodline. The WWE Hall of Famer claimed he would see the move coming from a mile away and expressed his interest in becoming the new Wiseman.


Speaking on his podcast Rikishi Fatu Off The Top, he admitted it would make sense for him to join The Bloodline. While initially reluctant to the idea, Rikishi revealed how he would change things; by ensuring an even playing field on both sides of the dominant faction:

“Damn it, every time I keep trying to leave [myself] out, you guys keep trying to pull me back in. And of course, I’m not saying ‘No, I won’t.’ What I’m saying is, hey, I’ll see it coming a mile away and I’ll know when it’s time for me to throw my name in the hat,” said Rikishi. “At the end of the day, we’re gonna make sure that this is gonna be an even playing field for The Bloodline on both sides,” h

Rikishi went on to praise Jey Uso’s run to the King of the Ring semi-final. He will face Gunther this coming week on WWE RAW, with a spot in the tournament final on the line.
