WWE Match Pulled From SmackDown

WWE Match Pulled From SmackDown WWE

A previously advertised match was pulled from this week’s WWE SmackDown from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (May 24).

As well as Tama Tonga’s King of the Ring semi-finals match against Randy Orton, another match featuring Bloodline members was set to take place on SmackDown.

As announced last week, the newest Bloodline recruit Tonga Loa was set to make his in-ring debut on this week’s SmackDown – teaming with Solo Sikoa to take on The Street Profits.

However, this proved to not be the case with the tag team match never taking place on the show.

The Bloodline’s planned opponents The Street Profits were in action on the show, taking part in a six-man tag team match alongside LA Knight against A-Town Down Under and Carmelo Hayes.

As for Sikoa and Tonga Loa however, neither would compete on SmackDown. Sikoa would feature on the show, accompanying Tama Tonga to the ring for his match with Orton, but Tonga Loa would not be present at all.

In a backstage segment, Paul Heyman explained that he could not get Tonga Loa cleared to cross the border to allow him to travel to Saudi Arabia because he’s so dangerous, but the real reasoning for the change of plans is not yet known.

WrestleTalk will provide further update on Tonga’s status as/when it becomes available.
