The Bloodline and Judgement Day both needed some time to establish themselves on WWE television, but now that they have, both factions are thriving and producing new stars for the organisation. Although Finn Balor’s stable has been around for a lot longer, Roman Reigns’ stable has nonetheless made some noteworthy achievements. In addition to giving their leaders a greater sense of importance, the coalitions have also been used to launch the careers of new stars like Solo Sikoa, Damian Priest, Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, and, to a lesser extent, Sami Zayn.
Everyone else mentioned—aside from Sikoa—was on the primary roster a few months ago but lacked direction. In NXT, Priest and Ripley were incredibly effective, but as soon as Vince McMahon took control of their identities, they lost their appeal. Following its debut at WrestleMania 38, Judgement Day took some time to take off, with Edge’s initial promos falling flat and sounding trite. Ripley and Priest appeared to be gaining confidence week by week until Balor abruptly expelled him from the organisation and took over as leader.
Because the Rated R Superstar wasn’t present to dominate the mic, Priest was able to get into a groove. He might be the group’s best mic worker, and his promotions seem to get better every week. It’s a D-Generation X move to use Ripley as a heater, and as their suggested romance develops, it may be entertaining to watch. The on-screen chemistry between the two is lacking, but that has always been a hallmark of Judgement Day. Everything coming together has taken some time. It has been suggested that AJ Styles might join the group. Either a Balor/Styles faction will be presented to the audience (eventually), or the two will engage in conflict. That benefits everyone involved
Solo Sikoa & Samy Zayn Benefit From Roman Reigns’ Presence
Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns are currently involved in one of the hottest storylines in wrestling right now on The Bloodline. Long-term angles are intended to call AEW home, yet there is nothing cruising there at the same altitude. The most major position Zayn has held on the programme since SmackDown hammered Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon into the ground in 2017 is this one. Zayn was massively over in NXT and has had several shining spots on the main roster.
The biggest beneficiary of Reigns and his aura may be Solo Sikoa. When The Usos and Roman formed The Bloodline, they were a renowned tag team, and Paul Heyman was already a member of the Hall of Fame. The 29-year-old fits in perfectly. Given his heritage, Sikoa’s debut at Clash At The Castle was ideal for the faction. Roman Reigns is further elevated to the position of final boss while he provides The Bloodline with another singles opponent to work with.
