It’s a family thing. There are some families in wrestling that are known just by name alone. The Harts, the Andersons, the Ortons and several more are families that are so well known you can name off most of their members from memory alone. Then there is the big one though, with the Anoa’i family, also known as the Samoans. There are several members and branches of the family and one of them gave a relative a shoutout.
The WWE is currently on their annual post-WrestleMania European tour and held a show in Helsinki, Finland last week. During the show, the Usos were involved in a match with Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev, which featured Jey Uso using a People’s Elbow on Rusev. Uso and the Rock are cousins, making this a bit of a family tribute. The Usos lost the match, which also featured Daniel Bryan and Rowan.
Tribute to the cousin. Check out Jey electrifying Finland:
Opinion: This might not be the biggest thing in the world but it certainly is a cool thing to see. You can tell that the European shows are a little more laid back than most and that can make for some fun moments like this one. The Usos are one of the most charismatic acts in the WWE and it’s even better when they get to do one of the most charismatic moves in wrestling.
How are things looking for the Usos? When will they win the Tag Team Titles again? Let us know in the comments below.
