WWE’s Bloodline Expands: Jacob Fatu Debuts, Original Name Plans Scrapped

One big thing: Jacob Fatu joins WWE’s Bloodline, original name plans revealed

Jacob Fatu, former MLW star, made his WWE debut on the June 21 episode of SmackDown, aligning with Solo Sikoa’s Bloodline faction.

• WWE initially filed a trademark for “Caesar Sikoa,” speculated to be Fatu’s ring name.
• Plans for the “Caesar Sikoa” name were scrapped, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
WWE has since filed a trademark for “Samoan Werewolf,” Fatu’s independent circuit nickname.

Why it matters

Fatu’s addition to the Bloodline strengthens WWE’s Samoan dynasty storyline, potentially setting up new feuds and storylines within the company’s top faction.

Behind the scenes

• Fatu debuted by emerging from under the ring in a mask.
• A behind-the-scenes video of the debut preparation has surfaced online.
• Triple H described Fatu as “a game changer” following his debut.

What’s next

The Bloodline is set to face Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens at WWE Money in the Bank on July 6, 2024.

By the numbers

• 1 WWE debut for Jacob Fatu
• 2 trademark applications filed by WWE (Caesar Sikoa and Samoan Werewolf)
• 3 opponents for The Bloodline at Money in the Bank
