New WWE Signing Spotted With Current Star Ahead Of Debut WWE

A reported new WWE signing has been spotted with a current star amid speculation about his upcoming debut for the company.

WWE has had made several high-profile signings recently, with former NJPW stars Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa making their WWE debuts on the main roster, as part of the major Bloodline faction.

Rumors have been swirling about Solo Sikoa’s iteration of the Bloodline potentially gaining more members, following reports that former NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion Hikuleo has now signed with WWE.

WWE NXT star Eddy Thorpe has now shared an Instagram post featuring himself and the new WWE signing following a workout.

Thorpe notably wrestled for NJPW prior to joining WWE, as Karl Fredericks. He shared the ring with Hikuleo three times during their NJPW tenures, most recently in a 10-man elimination tag-team match taped for a December 2020 edition of NJPW STRONG.

Hikuleo’s real life half-brother is Tama Tonga, and he’s considered the adopted brother of Tonga Loa. with both Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa currently in the Bloodline, it has been heavily speculated that Hikuleo will join his brothers in the faction.

WWE recently filed to trademark the name Tala Tonga, which some have speculated could be intended to be used by Hikuleo, and the company also has another Bloodline family member Jacob Fatu signed, but he hasn’t debuted as of yet.
