Jimmy Uso


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.

WWE Career

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.

Post-brand split

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.
