The Usos

The Usos begin each match by approaching to the ring performing the Siva Tau, a traditional Samoan war dance meant to strike fear in their opponents. While embracing that aspect of their heritage, Jimmy and Jey have been determined to show the WWE Universe they are fully integrated into American culture from the onset. A more modern representation of their family, the pair instantly dismissed stereotypes of savagery commonly associated with Samoan grapplers.

Jey and his brother debuted alongside Tamina, daughter of WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka in May 2010, attacking The Hart Dynasty — another family with strong sports-entertainment lineage — and staked their claim on behalf of their family tree.

Recently, The Usos stated their goal of becoming WWE Tag Team Champions. Now adorned with face paint meant to show their desire for success, Jey & Jimmy Uso refocused their efforts on fighting their way up WWE’s tag team division, all in hopes of getting the chance to challenge The Shield for the tandem titles.

The twins did look impressive against the champions at the Money in the Bank Kickoff, but they ultimately came up short. Despite that misstep, The Usos continued to chase The Shield in hopes of one day seizing championship gold. The Samoan Superstars bounced back from a tough-luck loss during the Night of Champions 2013 Kickoff to become the new No. 1 contenders for the tandem titles one day later on Raw. Though Cody Rhodes & Goldust won the titles a few weeks later, The Usos got their chance against the new champions and The Shield in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match at WWE Hell in a Cell, only to come up short when the Rhodes brothers successfully retained. At Elimination Chamber, the WWE Tag Team Titles once again eluded The Usos, losing to the veteran New Age Outlaws. On the March 3, 2014, episode of Raw, The Usos captured the WWE Tag Team Titles from The New Age Outlaws.

In a thrilling WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show contest, Jey & Jimmy Uso outlasted three other tag teams to defend their WWE Tag Team Titles on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
