Early Life and Family
Jimmy Uso and his twin brother Jey Uso were born into the Samoan Anoa’i family. After being trained by
his father Rikishi from childhood, Umaga, who happens to be his uncle, helped him get trained in WWE.
Jimmy started his professional career in 2009 in FCW forming a tag team with his brother and becoming
the FCW Florida Tag team Champions, leaving behind the job of furniture movers and settlers that they
did for another uncle. After two years in the FCW developmental territory, Jimmy and Jey were moved
to the main roster.
The tag team of Jimmy and Jey debuted on WWE as heels, attacking the Hart Dynasty. The feud with the
Harts continued for a better part of 2010 and some parts of 2011 as well. In 2011, Jimmy Uso turned
face on Superstars when the Usos competed against The Corre, but lost the match. From then on, Jimmy
would compete for the Tag Team Championships in pursuit of the title.
WWE Tag Team Championship
In 2013, Jimmy Uso as well as Jey Uso started painting their faces as a tribute to their uncle and former
mentor, now deceased Umaga and also to their Samoan roots. On their first match with face paints,
Jimmy and Jey also defeat Prime Time Players, thus starting a winning streak which led to victories
against The Shield, The Wyatt Family and finally the New Age Outlaws to win the title – their first in
WWE. Usos win it one more time in 2016 before the brand split, defeating American Alpha, thus
becoming the first team to win both Raw Tag Team Championships (formerly, WWE Tag Team
Championships) and SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
After the brand split, Jimmy Uso turned heel and developed a new street attitude, which paved the way
towards more wins for the Uso tag team. They have since held the SmackDown Live Tag Team
Championship title three times and feud on a regular basis to keep it.
Jimmy married fellow WWE wrestle, former manager and long-time girlfriend Trinity Fatu aka Naomi in
2014. Naomi and Jimmy Uso now wrestle as a tag team in the Mixed Match Challenge.
