Few Superstars have arrived in WWE with more of a pedigree than Jey Uso. Along with his brother Jimmy, Jey is a member of the legendary Samoan Anoa’i Family, which includes such WWE Hall of Fame luminaries as his father Rikishi and great uncles The Wild Samoans, as well as The People’s Champion, The Rock.
The Usos begin each match by approaching 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 a more modern representation of their family.
Performing in more traditional in-ring trunks and boots instead of barefoot in beads like his island-born great uncles, Jey’s style represents the seamless blend of Samoan tradition and American innovation. This acceptance and evolution of their heritage inevitably paid dividends for The Usos, who joined the list of Anoa'i Family luminaries who held tag team championship gold in WWE by defeating The New Age Outlaws for their first WWE Tag Team Championships in March 2014.
With their legend still being written, there’s no telling how high The Usos will soar, but the future is there for the taking. All together now: “UCE!”
