In the opening match at Backlash France, Tama Tonga had his first televised WWE match.

He teamed up with Solo Sikoa to defeat Randy Orton and Kevin Owens in a Street Fight, with help from his returning brother Tanga Loa (fka Camacho in NXT).

With this match, Tama has joined the history books by becoming only the 3rd man to make his televised in-ring debut in WWE in a Street Fight.

The other two men on this list are Jesús (2004) and Dominik Mysterio (2020).

Regarding Tama’s brother Tanga, the Wrestling Observer reported the following about Triple H bringing him in:

“Tanga Loa’s deal and Tama Tonga’s were actually together, it’s just that… the Tanga Loa thing it didn’t get out because New Japan (Pro Wrestling) never announced [his contract had expired], they never gave him a farewell.

WWE obviously never announces anything like this, but this is not like something from the last two weeks, this deal was decided on months ago.”

It should be noted that Tanga botched his return as he didn’t interfere in time to break the referee’s pinfall count, and the referee himself had to save that spot.

You can watch it below:

Speaking of Tama Tonga, he will face Bobby Lashley in the SmackDown side of the King of the Ring tournament.
