On an upswing of excitement, Jimmy and Jey Uso are becoming one of, if not the, hottest tag teams in the WWE. With wild eyed ring entrances and a modern look saluting their heritage and wrestling family life, they are connecting with both fans and the locker room alike, providing a unique couple of ring combatants that are a force to be reckoned with. They have received one Mattel WWE wrestling figure set so far, included in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 11 in red:
Featured with red trunks and tights, this version of the Usos represents their debut in the WWE. They have gained infinitely more personality and been featured on television a great deal more since the release of this set, so more Mattel WWE Uso figures are imminent. Possible designs are plentiful, and the following would make some great ones:
The Usos have shown up time and time again with matching yellow ring shorts with blue designs and yellow boots. The greatest detail is the addition of face paint, adding the island feel to the Usos and their ring presence. They are reminiscent of their wrestling relatives and ready to fight with any challengers in this look. The blue outline of the yellow face paint is an even more notable detail.
In pink and green, the Usos added a more pastel look to their arsenal of imagery. Sporting pink and green shorts, matching ring boots and face paint, they also wear necklaces to complete their style. Possibly an unexpected look for such a masculine team, but Bret Hart proved time and time again that real men wear pink.
The Usos have opted for headbands over face paint at times, like this style complete with a green island shorts, orange and green boots and a head band for each. While this doesn’t have the same level of intimidation factor as face paint might for some, it can be argued that it is a more cerebral approach to attacking the tag team division. A possible removable headband would set these figures apart not only from their own, but from other Mattel WWE figures as well.
With all their new looks and designs, the Usos have reinvented the classic red that they debuted in. They may already have Mattel WWE figures in red, but updated versions including face paint, matching shorts and new, styled boots would make a perfect addition to any Mattel WWE figure collection.
Whether it’s in the ring with their unique style of heavy hitting, or on the way to a match with their wild dances and crowd interaction, The Usos are a family team that are here to stay in the wrestling business. Mattel has always produced wrestling figures of staple talents, and since the Usos are one of the most featured tag teams of the modern day division, more of their figures are certainly soon to follow.
