The Usos: 2022 Biography, Net Worth, Family, Income
Joshua Samuel Fatu and Jonathan Solofa Fatu better known as Jimmy and Jey Uso were born on August 22, 1985, in San Francisco. They are professional wrestlers collectively known as The Usos and are currently signed to WWE.
As members of the legendary Anoaʻi family, sons of WWE Hall of Famer, Rikishi, and cousins of The Rock and Roman Reigns it is no surprise the twins entered the world of professional wrestling. After playing football while attending the University of West Alabama to duo signed to WWE’s developmental promotion, FCW as The Fatu Brothers in 2009. In FCW they won the Florida Tag Team Championship before being called to the main roster the following year.
On Raw, the Usos accompanied by Tamina attacked the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions, The Hart Dynasty, but they were unsuccessful in their title challenge. The following month, they were drafted to SmackDown and began performing the traditional Samoan war dance, the Manu Siva Tau, as part of their ring entrance to highlight their Samoan culture.
In 2014, after brief feuds with The Shield and the Wyatt Family, the duo won their first tag team titles by defeating The New Age Outlaws prior to WrestleMania XXX. They successfully defended the title against the likes of Ryback and Curtis Axel, The Real Americans, Los Matadores, and the Wyatt Family, before losing them to Goldust and Stardust after 202 days. The Usos would regain the titles from the Miz and Damien Sandow but dropped them to Tyson Kidd and Cesaro a few months later.
Things went from bad to worse when Jey Uso suffered a shoulder injury, which kept him out of action for six months. The duo returned as surprise participants at 2015’s Survivor Series alongside Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Ryback against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and The New Day. At the following PPV, TLC the two teams competed in a Triple Threat Tag Team Ladder Match for the WWE Tag Team Championships, which saw the New Day retain.
An early incarnation of The Bloodline followed when Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson attacked the twins before siding with AJ Styles, who was feuding with Roman Reigns. The Usos joined forces with their cousin in a losing effort against the OC before defeating Gallows and Anderson at Extreme Rules in a Texas Tornado match before helping Reigns retain his title against Styles.
Following the 2016 WWE Draft, the duo went on a losing streak, which resulted in a serious character shift. Gone were the colourful outfits and faces, replaced by ball caps, street clothes and a take-no-sh*t attitude. The new attitude paid dividends when they defeated American Alpha for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships making them the first team to win the tag titles on both brands.
Following their title win, they reignited their feud with the New Day. The two teams embarked on an epic rivalry that saw the titles exchange hands several times, most notably in the first-ever tag team championship match inside a Hell in a Cell match. The feud resulted in mutual respect between the two teams but they would meet again for the titles only this time in a Triple Threat match at WrestleMania 34. In their first-ever match on the main show, the Usos would lose the championships when the Bludgeon Brothers pinned the New Day.
Following the loss, the duo failed to get back into title contention until their fortunes began to turn around at Survivor Series when they won the 10-on-10 match as the sole survivors. They then won a number one contenders match by beating The Bar, the New Day and Heavy Machinery before going on to recapture the titles a fourth time from the Miz and Shane McMahon at Elimination Chamber. They would successfully defend the title in a Fatal 4-Way at WrestleMania 35 against the Bar, Aleister Black and Ricochet, and Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev before dropping them to the Hardy Boyz two nights later.
During the 2019 ‘Superstar Shakeup’ the brothers were drafted to Raw, where they began a feud with the Revival over the Raw Tag Team Championships. The two teams clashed several times but the Usos were unable to capture the titles. After a long period off television, Jimmy and Jey returned to WWE in January 2020 to help out Reigns in his rivalry against King Corbin in a Loser Eats Dog Food match.
The duo inserted themselves back into the title race and competed in the Elimination Chamber for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship but was unsuccessful. The team broke up when Jimmy suffered a nasty knee injury at WrestleMania 34 and left Jey with the opportunity to shine on his own.
Jey teamed up with his cousin Roman Reigns in a Samoan Street Fight against King Corbin & Sheamus before winning a Fatal-Four-Way match to earn a shot at the Universal Championship at Clash of Champions against Reigns. The title challenge resulted in Reigns mercilessly beating Jey until Jimmy hobbled down and threw in the towel.
Jey and Reigns continued to feud over the title and his position in the family. At Hell In A Cell, Jey received another title shot but in an “I Quit” match with the added stipulation that if Jey lost, he would have to follow Reigns’ orders or be kicked out of their family. Jey lost the match when Reigns made him quit by attacking Jimmy’s injured knee.
Following the loss, Jey joined Reigns and became known as the “Right Hand Man”. Jimmy returned from injury and after initially disapproving of Jey’s allegiance with Reigns he soon joined the family and reunited the Bloodline in the process. Back together after nearly a year apart the Usos defeated the Mysterios for SmackDown Tag Team Championship for a record-breaking fifth time. They dominated the division and defeated RK-Bro to win the Raw Tag Team Championship, becoming the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions and longest-reigning tag team champions in WWE history.
