Jey Uso: Bio
Twin sons of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi, Jey Uso 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 repeatedly took 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 on more than one occasion.
But eventually faced with a crop of new tag teams to overcome, The Usos soon 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.
Over time, The Usos became one of the most dynamic and ruthless tag team show ever stepped in WWE, a tandem that brought the crowd to its feet with their skills virtually every time they entered the ring, including throughout an epic rivaly with The New Day. Together, there is little The Usos couldn't do, being together since Day One!
Nevertheless, in spite of his tag team greatness, Jey Uso reached his greatest notoriety in his association with his cousin Roman Reigns. Following a highly personal feud with The Big Dog, Jey was eventually subjected by the "Head of the Table." Since then, Jey became completely unhinged, delivering numerous attacks at the behest of Reigns and becoming "Main Event" Jey Uso thanks to numerous main event showdowns on SmackDown.
Then, when his brother Jimmy returned from injury, The Usos overcame Rey and Dominik Mysterio at WWE Money in the Bank to once again claim the SmackDown Tag Team Title as eight-time Tag Team Champions.
In early 2022, The Usos defeated RK-Bro to become Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.
After one of the longest tag team title reigns of all time, The Usos were defeated by Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 39 in the main event of Night One. This defeat would anger The Tribal Chief, opening a chasm that would eventually lead to The Usos splitting off from Reigns. At WWE Money in the Bank 2023, The Usos emerged victorious against Reigns & Solo Sikoa in The Bloodline Civil War, as Jey became the first Superstar to pin Reigns in three years.
Jey challenged his cousin for his Tribal Chief status as well as the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2023 but was unsuccessful after being blindsided by his brother Jimmy! Distraught at his family's actions, Jey superkicked Jimmy on the following SmackDown and left through the crowd, announcing that he was leaving WWE, only for him to return at WWE Payback as a member of Monday Night Raw.
