Hailing from California, United States, Joseph ‘Sefa’ Fatu, born on March 18, 1993, possesses a remarkable lineage within the revered Samoan wrestling family of the WWE. While attending college, Sikoa demonstrated his exceptional athletic prowess across various sports. His journey began at American River College, where his football skills shone brightly, leaving a lasting impact on the field. Continuing his football career at Dickinson State University, Sikoa’s dedication and athleticism continued to impress. However, upon completing his college education, he made the courageous choice to transition from football to embark on a new passion, embracing the world of professional wrestling.

He showcased his skills and passion for the sport in promotions including Arizona Wrestling Federation and Future Stars of Wrestling, leaving an indelible mark until the year 2021. With each match, Solo Sikoa cemented his reputation as a determined and accomplished performer in the world of professional wrestling.
Amidst the eagerly anticipated Clash at the Castle event, the stage was set for a gripping showdown between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre for the prestigious Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. As the match reached its climax, with McIntyre on the verge of victory through a pinfall on Reigns, an unidentified figure in a black hoodie intervened, pulling Reigns out of the ring to break the pin. Subsequently revealed as Solo Sikoa, he made a stunning main roster debut on the September 9th episode of SmackDown, facing McIntyre in a hard-fought battle that ended in a disqualification victory for McIntyre due to Kross’s interference.
To everyone’s surprise, Solo resurfaced on the September 13th edition of NXT, issuing an unexpected challenge to Hayes for the North American Championship. Against all odds, Sikoa emerged triumphant, capturing the title in a remarkable upset. He then defended his newly acquired championship against Madcap Moss on SmackDown during that same week, showcasing his resilience and skill. However, Sikoa’s title reign was short-lived, as the following week on NXT, Shawn Michaels, in an unfortunate turn of events, compelled him to relinquish the championship since the match in which he won the title was not officially sanctioned.

His debut and subsequent championship win displayed his undeniable talent and determination, while the bittersweet relinquishment underscored the complexities of the wrestling landscape.
