Jimmy Uso Says He Hopes Ava Raine Joins The Bloodline
One half of the Undisputed Tag Team Champions is leaving the door open for his cousin.
NXT’s newest Superstar and The Schism’s latest addition, Ava Raine, has already made a huge impact in the WWE and she’s only made one appearance. Raine, who is the daughter of The Rock, signed with WWE in February 2020 before debuting last week by revealing herself as Schism’s new masked member. Since then, the WWE Universe and Superstars alike have taken to social media to not only congratulate Raine, but praise her first appearance.
As a member of the iconic Anoa'i family, fans have already drawn the conclusion that Raine would be a perfect addition to The Bloodline, and one half of the Undisputed Tag Team Champions in Jimmy Uso agrees. Jimmy has been trying his best to hold The Bloodline together lately as his brother Jey is having a very hard time accepting the honorary Uce, Sami Zayn, as one of their own. Jimmy spoke with TMZ Sports yesterday where he talked about Raine’s debut, her possibly joining The Bloodline, and how the family is supporting her in NXT.
When asked about Raine joining himself and the rest of The Bloodline, Jimmy said, “Schism’s throwin’ up the twos, Uce. We throwin’ up the ones, you know what I’m sayin’? … We’ll see. There’s always an open door, but we’ll keep it at that.”
While Raine is currently on the NXT brand as the rest of her family dominates the main roster, Jimmy confirmed that the Anoa’i family still runs deep within her, and she has been taking their advice. “Come on, man, you already know. We all family, bro. We all look out for her. She’s got the whole squad on her side, the whole family, bro. Her dad, us, the cousins. I’m sure if she reached out, we got it. Hey, it’s for the family.”
Jimmy and the rest of his family have high hopes for the 21-year-old Raine as she joins Joe Gacy, Rip Fowler, and Jagger Reid as an official member of The Schism and becomes WWE’s first-ever fourth-generation Superstar. “Hey, shout out to her, you know what I’m sayin’? Any way the family can get it man, I’m all for it, you know? I’m ready to see what she can do. I’m ready for her to pop off and represent The Bloodline, you know what I’m saying? So like either way, whether it’s down there or up on the main roster, I’m with it, man, I’m all for it,” Jimmy continued.
"Sky’s the limit, bro," he added. "You know, you gotta put your work in here. And I’m sure she’s got the workhorse in her like we all do. It runs deep in the blood, and I’m excited for her future. I can’t wait to see where this takes us.”
