Jey Uso: Bio
The Usos don’t care if you like them. They might actually prefer it if you didn’t.
The twin sons of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi, Jey and his brother Jimmy bubbled under the radar for years as a workhorse tag team in WWE before finally hitting the big time while embracing their Samoan heritage. The brothers would repeatedly take to the skies in bright colors, flying tassels and dazzling war paint, winning the WWE Tag Team Championship and Slammy for Tag Team of the Year twice.
But then, a funny thing happened after the WWE Brand Extension Draft of 2016. The Usos, faced with a crop of new tag teams, decided they were “done with all that” and went back to basics. No more paint, no more screaming. Black T-shirt, black hoodies and a mean streak that needs to be seen to be believed.
As four-time SmackDown Tag Team Champions, these Usos are perhaps the most ruthless tag team walking WWE today, and while they’ll still bring the crowd to its feet with their skills (their battles with The New Day in 2017 were all instant classics), they’re no longer actively seeking approval from the WWE Universe. Back on Raw after the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, all Jey & Jimmy need is each other: The only two who have been down since Day One.
