The Usos are the hottest tag team in the WWE today, and arguably the best in the world as they carry the WWE Tag Team Championships! Their island-style, urban personalities and excellent team-work have brought them great success and the foundation for this can at times be attributed to their equally successful father, former WWE wrestler and Superstar Rikishi Fatu. Rikishi was a staple of the WWE Attitude Era, dancing with Too Cool and chasing the WWE Championship at his pique. The Usos dance at the end of every successful match, just like their dad, and carry his fearless, carefree attitude.
Released in Mattel WWE Elite 27 with an entrance sarong accessory and sunglasses, Rikishi has always known how to get the fans on their feet and behind his in-ring challenges. Finishing his matches with the ‘stink face’ finisher, he left his mark on his opponent and shocked fans around the world regularly. He has returned to the WWE in recent years to celebrate with his sons, Jimmy and Jey Uso, when they happen to have victories on nights that he is around.
In Mattel WWE Battle Packs 28, the Usos are scheduled to make their long awaited return to the Mattel WWE line. It is a complete mystery as to what they will look like, but they have featured new, colorful outfits and elaborate face paint since their last Mattel WWE Battle Pack was released. The influence that Rikishi has had on the Usos is clear in that they tend to maintain a happy-go-lucky yet confidently aggressive approach to any and all matches they perform in. Their unique entrance is also similar to Rikishi’s in that it gets a reaction from the WWE Universe in attendance every time. Soon, fans will be able to have both Rikishi and the Usos in one place and have a tag team match featuring two generations.
