Jonathan Solofa Fatu and Joshua Samuel Fatu are a Samoan-American Tag Team currently signed to WWE as The Usos, Jimmy (Jonathan) and Jey (Joshua). They debuted in 2007 under their real names for the WXW promotion, run by their uncle, Afa. They named their team The Samoan Soldiers before they jumped to WWE. They became the Uso Brothers, Jimmy and Jules, in WWE's developmental program FCW, where they were 1x FCW Florida Tag Team Champions. They debuted in WWE in 2010 as heels, feuding with the Hart Dynasty. They turned face via their feud with the Corre on WWE NXT in 2011 and have remained faces ever since. As of March 3rd, 2014, they are now the Tag Team Champions.As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.
The Artifact: For a while, they were the only real serious Tag Team in WWE.
Ass Kicks You: They both use running corner hip splashes in homage to their father.
Badass Family/Wrestling Family: Members of the large Anoa'i family, specifically the sons of Rikishi, and the nephews of Umaga and Tonga Kid. Also cousins of one of their archenemies, Roman Reigns. If you were to count the Anoa'i family's "blood brothers", you could throw the Maivia family (and therefore one Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) in there as well.
Big Damn Heroes: At Money In The Bank 2013, saving the titular match up from Shield interference.
Chef of Iron: They are the good cooks who happen to be wrestlers variety, and once offered to show anyone who wanted to know how they barbeque chicken and other dishes.
Cool Big Sis: Although she was referred to in passing as their 'cousin' at the time of their partnership, Tamina Snuka played this role to the Usos during the early parts of their WWE career. She has actually addressed Jimmy and Jey with "brother" in promos but this falls under Bilingual Bonus.
Dance Battler: Well, they dance before they battle and when they No Sell. This was what started their feud with the Prime Time Players, who mocked the Siva Tau to which the Usos mocked the "million dollar dance" along everything else about Titus and Daren.
Generation Xerox: Averted. While they did adopt a couple of moves in homage to their father, Rikishi, neither brother is anywhere near as big, and a close examination of their movesets reveals that they actually owe more of their wrestling style to Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka.
Green-Eyed Monster: With Tamina toward the Hart Dynasty. They felt their families weren't respected by the fans the way the Harts are and attacked the Dynasty during their Raw debut.
Hard Head: Discussed in a match where one of their opponents thought it would be a good idea to exchange headbutts with them by Jerry Lawler: "Don't ever try to headbutt an Uso."
Identical Twin ID Tag: Jey has a tattoo on one of his pecs. This is discussed In-Universe to help viewers who were having a hard time telling the two apart. Also, now that they've started wearing face paint, each wears it on the opposite side.
It RunsIn the Blood: Don't try to count on your fingers exactly how many of their family members have been involved with professional wrestling. You will run out of fingers. Let's just say that Jimmy and Jey boast a very strong pro wrestling gene pool.
Lightning Bruiser: They're known as high flyers (and can back it up with the Superfly Splash and their top-rope clearing suicide dives) but are quite a bit larger than average for that type of wrestler (Jey at 228 pound, Jimmy at 251) and incorporate a lot of hard striking attacks into their arsenal.
No Indoor Voice: Especially before their matches. The mic that's meant to pick up their Siva Tau chant often comes in a couple of seconds late. You can always still hear at least one of them.
Playing with Fire: Probably the best pyro in WWE today next to Wrestling/Kane and perhaps Wrestling/Batista.
Signature Move: Umaga-esque butt smash, diving headbutt, assisted Samoan drop (alley-us), double back elbow to double elbow drop, savate kick trust in the gut transitioned to an uppercut, suicide plancha.
Both brothers also pack a mean superkick.
Unrelated Brothers: Averted, played straight, and inverted in different situations. Obviously averted in the case of their own tag team. Played straight in their initial relationship with Tamina, who's called their cousin on screen, despite the fact that that the Anoa'i and Snuka families aren't even from the same country.note Anoa'i are from American Samoa, while Snuka's origins are in Fiji; there is a connection, though, as Snuka is married to a member of the Anoa'i familyInverted as far as their relationship with Roman Reigns goes. By blood, Reigns is the Usos' first cousin once removed, but this is never brought up. Also, Jimmy's wife Naomi of the Funkadactyls - which is also never referenced despite the fact that she (and by extension, Jimmy) is a heavy feature on Total Divas along with Brie Bella, whose Real Life engagement to Bryan Danielson has featured in storylines at times.
Tag Team Twins: Subverted at first, where they noted not long after their WWE debut that the fans probably could not tell them apart but that would change. Later played a straight in an attempt to turn around a losing streak on Superstars, then subverted again when Jimmy became noticeably the bigger of the two and they got started wearing face paint.
Took a Level in Badass: After a slow crawl toward respectability for most of their careers, right around June 2013 (notably, when they started wearing face paint as part of their attire), they made the jump not only to a feature tag team (they appear on TV nearly as much as the current champions nowadays) but a serious threat in the ring. They were part of (along with Christian) one of the first teams to beat The Shield in a televised match and have quickly gone from jobbers to having a mostly winning TV record.
They finally achieved Tag Team Championship on March 3rd, 2014.
Wild Samoan: Subverted, from the start they claimed not to be your stereotypical Samoans. They don't dress the part, and the few aspects they do use, such as performing Polynesian wardances, are used to both intimidate their opponents and pay homage to their Samoan heritage. Although it's worth noting that the Trope Namers are relatives of theirs, and they've adopted face paint and looser, more island-esque (though still urban) wrestling attire.
