The Backlash Premium Live Event electrified fans on Saturday, May 4, 2024, at the LDLC Arena in Lyon-Decines, France.

The opening match set the tone for the evening as Kevin Owens and Randy Orton collided with Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga in a street fight that had the audience on the edge of their seats.

From the outset, Owens and Orton dominated the bout with their relentless aggression, keeping Sikoa and Tonga on the defensive. However, just when it seemed victory was within their grasp, the match took a dramatic turn.

In a stunning turn of events, Tama Tonga’s brother, Tanga Loa, made a surprise appearance, marking his debut in the ring. His interference proved pivotal, causing enough chaos to shift the momentum in favor of Sikoa and Tonga. Seizing the opportunity, Solo Sikoa capitalized with his devastating Samoan Spike, securing the victory over Kevin Owens.


For those unfamiliar, Tanga worked under the ring name Camacho during his tenure in WWE previously. Tanga Loa made his mark as part of the Bullet Club faction in NJPW. He formed a formidable tag team alongside his adoptive brother, Tama Tonga, aptly named Guerrillas of Destiny (G.O.D.). Their combination of brute force, agility, and tactical prowess led them to numerous championship reigns, including multiple IWGP Tag Team Championships.

As The Bloodline narrative unfolds, the addition of Tanga Loa promises to inject even more intensity and uncertainty into the mix, leaving fans eagerly anticipating what comes next.
