Former WWE announcer Hugo Savinovich was a guest on this week's UnSKripted, where he picked The Usos as the 'Tag Team of the Year' for the inaugural Sportskeeda Wrestling Awards.

Savinovich was a big fan of Jimmy and Jey's work and said that the brothers' love and passion towards tag team wrestling just couldn't be denied. Hugo Savinoch loved the Lucha Bros, but he eventually sided with Jimmy and Jey in the 'Best Tag Team of the Year' category.

The Lucha Libre AAA commentator said that while he is close friends with Penta and Fenix, he feels the WWE duo deserves recognition for being the best tag team.

Here's what the former WWE Spanish commentator told Dr. Chris Featherstone:

"Wow, I'm good friends; I love the Lucha Brothers. But, one of the things that I've always told our fans is, I'm going to shoot straight, and I have to give it to the Uso brothers. I believe that they bring the essence of tag team wrestling with good psychology, and they are crafted, and they bring just so much passion and energy. You cannot overlook that. So, I'm going to go with them even though I love the Lucha Bros, and all the names you mentioned, they are good, but Usos, you've got to go with The Usos," revealed Hugo Savinovich. [11:24 – 12:18]
