Rikishi picks the son he supports in Jey Uso vs Jimmy Uso match at WrestleMania 40

WWE legend Rikishi has confirmed his support for one of the Uso brothers ahead of their match at WrestleMania 40 by posting a photo on Instagram. This will mark the first time Jey and Jimmy will face off in the ring.

The match has been building up for some time, with Jimmy’s repeated interventions leading to defeats for Jey. The brothers find themselves in a feud after Jey’s decision to go solo and break away from The Bloodline.

Rikishi posted a photo of Jey Uso on his Instagram handle yesterday, captioning it with #YEET, the catchphrase celebration for Jey. Fans expressed both their appreciation and surprise at the post.

While it’s good to see Rikishi get involved in the hype train as WrestleMania approaches. He feels it is great to see his sons fight on the biggest stage of them all. He says that it is a ‘dream match’ for the brothers, which has come to fruition. 

‘I can’t tell you how proud I am to see the boys; as we get closer to WrestleMania, it’s going to be emotional for my family’

He added that the whole event is going to be an emotional rollercoaster ride for the family. Rikishi believes this is an opportunity of a lifetime for both Jey and Jimmy Uso. He wants them to make the most of the opportunity and don’t let any distractions remove their mindset.

However, he wants the feud to end on a happy note. ‘I would love to see my boys at WrestleMania 40 walk back together, holding back together, holding hands so that story can close.’

Real-life Bloodline member believes Jimmy to win over Jey Uso at WM 40

Lance Anoa’i, another member of the great Samoan wrestling family, however, feels that Jimmy Uso will come victorious over his brother in WrestleMania. And he has his reasons, too. The current member of The Bloodline will also have Solo Sikoa by his side. That can be a disadvantage for Jey Uso as he takes on his brother.

Lance, who has also appeared on WWE’s RAW segment, believes WrestleMania to be the grandest event of them all. He even labeled it the ‘Super Bowl of professional wrestling’ and can’t wait to watch the event unfold live in Philadelphia.
