Triple H’s creative oversight of WWE’s tag team division resulted in the signing of several excellent pairings. The Uso twins, Jey and Jimmy, are widely regarded as the top tag team wrestlers in the world. The Usos are still a top-tier tag team, despite Jey’s solo career following SummerSlam.
Tag team expert Jey issues an open challenge to other great tag teams outside of WWE, further bolstering the Usos’ contention that they are the greatest in the world. Despite the fact that the brothers have gone their own ways, Jey claimed that The Usos are always on top and challenged other wrestlers, specifically naming The Young Bucks.
Jey Uso calls out The Young Bucks
Jey Uso is creating a name for himself on WWE Raw as a singles wrestler, but he and his twin brother Jimmy first became famous as the famed Usos tag team. With eight tag team championships since 2009, they’re regarded among the finest. The “forbidden door” has kept them from competing against more serious opponents.
Uso mentioned prospective matches with teams from other promotions and hinted at a future reunion with Jimmy in an interview with The Ringer. He apologized for missing a battle with the Hardy Boyz and lauded FTR as “top tier”.
In a fiery challenge to The Young Bucks, Uso invited them to the “Uso Penitentiary” to show they were the greatest outside of WWE. Despite having a solo run in WWE, he made a proposal for groups that were ready to stand up and show off their abilities.
He noted, “If you all want these dream matches, you all going to have to bring your ass to WWE, dog, to the top tier. You all going to have to come. Where we at ain’t dropping down. Young Bucks, everybody, like, bring it, dog. Run it. We the ones for a reason.”
The Young Bucks AEW career highlights
One of the best tag teams in WWE history is the Young Bucks, brothers Matt and Nick Jackson. They’ve been wrestling for about two decades, competing abroad in numerous promotions. After learning about AEW’s formation in January 2019, the Young Bucks decided to leave ROH and join the new promotion.
Their adventure started with PWG in Reseda, California. The Young Bucks won the AEW Tag Team Championship against FTR on November 7, 2020. Their 302-day reign is now the longest in AEW history for a tag team championship. Recent actions on their part have prompted speculation that they are reverting back to their wicked ways.
When Kenny Omega turned “Heel” and won the AEW World Championship with the help of Don Callis, the tides turned. Kenny hoped that the Young Bucks would become villains with him. After much deliberation, the Bucks decided to keep Kenny on the team.
At this time, the Young Bucks were anxiously awaiting Kenny Omega’s return from injury. But Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho pair together to take on The Young Bucks and win the tag team championship.
Given that the Young Bucks and the Usos are from opposing promotions, who do you think would come out on top in a match between the two teams? Leave your feedback below.
