The Usos vs The Dudleys WrestleMania 32
Posted by   |   Date: Mar 15, 2016   |   Read more


After enduring weeks of The Dudleys’ disparaging remarks, Jimmy & Jey Uso get set to face Bubba Ray & D-Von.
What began with a shocking betrayal will culminate with a deeply personal inter-family duel at WrestleMania.

Anoa’i dynasty, meet The Dudleys.

Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley shredded any illusion that they were a glad-handing nostalgia act when, on the Feb. 8 Raw, they turned their backs on Jimmy & Jey Uso and viciously sent both twins through tables. Claiming the WWE Universe took them for granted, The Dudleys — the most decorated tag team in history — have since reminded all of WWE (and most of all, The Usos) of their malice.

Adding insult to injury, The Dudleys have broadened their attack to include not just Jimmy & Jey, but other members of the proud Anoa’i family, as well. The ECW Originals have trash-talked The Usos’ father, WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi, and even jumped their cousin Roman Reigns.

Now seeing red, The Usos are intent on showing The Dudleys exactly why they, and not Bubba Ray & D-Von, were named the 2015 Slammy Tag Team of the Year. The Dudleys dominated The Attitude Era and beyond, but will they match up against one of the most successful duos of the past few years, the Uso-crazy twins?

Watch The Usos battle The Dudley Boyz on The Grandest Stage of Them All. WrestleMania airs live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, April 3, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

The Usos vs. Bo Dallas and Heath Slater

We go to the ring and out come The Usos. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and The Social Outcasts are out. The Dudley Boyz are also out for commentary. Bo starts off with Jimmy Uso and takes advantage of a distraction to get a cheap shot in. The Outcasts take an early victory lap. Bo comes back in and Uso unloads, hitting the Rikishi splash int he corner. Bubba Ray Dudley distracts again, allowing Bo to roll up for a 2 count. The Usos end up taking out all interfering Outcasts as The Dudleyz get up from commentary and head to the ramp, talking trash to The Usos. The Usos end up getting the win after a Superfly Splash while staring at The Dudleyz.

Winners: The Usos

– After the match, The Dudleyz continue talking trash.

The Usos vs. The Ascension

Viktor battles it out with both Jimmy and Jey, and gets handled for the first several minutes of the show as we head to a commercial break. We come back to see Konnor beating down Jey Uso, with Viktor joining in, double teaming the Uso brother with strikes. They tease Jey tagging Jimmy, but The Ascension keep cutting him off.

Jey hits a jawbreaker and gives Viktor a back body drop before tagging Jimmy. Jimmy hits what is technically a Samaon Drop (more like a Samoan toss) on Konnor and hits Viktor with an enziguri. The Usos deliver 3 superkicks and an Air Uso to Konnor for the win.

Winners: Usos via pinfall (Air Uso)

Renee Young was backstage with The Usos. She asked them about the Dudley Boyz’ aggression toward them. The Usos talked about watching the Dudleys when they were kids. They said they had no respect for the Dudley Boyz. Dolph Ziggler and Dean Ambrose walked in. Ziggler, responding to a question about Stephanie McMahon, said there will always be repercussions, and he’s ready for them. Ambrose said Wyatts first, Roadblock second. They got amped up like they were an old-school Survivor Series team cutting a promo before their match, then walked out of the interview area.


Luke Harper began the match with Ambrose. Deep arm-drag by Ambrose put Harper on the mat. Ziggler tagged in with a standing dropkick. Harper was getting smoked by everyone, so he went to ringside to consult with his family as the show cut to break at 2:07 of the match.

Back at 6:17 of the match, and this time, Harper was on offense against Jey Uso. Before Ziggler could really get fired up, Erick Rowan clotheslined him from the apron, allowing Braun Strowman to do some of the dirty work as the legal man. Harper caught a dropkick attempt from Ziggler, and catapulted Ziggler throat-first into the rope. After a minute or two, Ziggler had Harper figuratively on the ropes, and was finally able to make the tag at 10:47 of the match. Jey Uso came in and worked over Harper. The Usos dove onto Wyatt Family members Harper and Rowan on opposite sides of the ring. Harper got his knees up on a Jey Uso splash attempt. Ambrose made the tag 12:15 into the match. Harper broke up a pin on Rowan after an Ambrose elbowdrop from the top. The match broke down from there with Ziggler hosting his own superkick party. Ambrose fought out of a Rowan high-impact move and connected on Dirty Deeds.

Winners: The Usos, Ziggler, and Ambrose, at 13:56.

The dark segment after this week’s WWE RAW in Chicago saw The Wyatt Family return to the ring after WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H made his exit. They attacked Dean Ambrose, leading to several Superstars making their way out for a big brawl.

Goldust, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, The Usos, WWE United States Champion Kalisto and pizza delivery boy R-Truth cleared the ring of several heels and stood tall with Ambrose to celebrate. They all ate some of Truth’s pizza to end the show.

In recent weeks, WWE bore witness to all sorts of domination by The League of Nations, and it continued on SmackDown against The Usos. Though the high-octane Samoan warriors were able to take down the entire League by diving outside the ring in the height of the action, Sheamus had enough presence of mind to lift his knees and block Jimmy’s Samoan Splash from the tope rope — before finishing him off with a devastating Brogue Kick.

But the carnage didn’t stop there. As the dust cleared, The Dudley Boyz emerged to deliver a brutal post-match assault on their war-paint-wearing adversaries. While Bubba Ray and D-Von did not use the table they brought into the ring, they did admit to lying when they told The Usos not to take their onslaught personally.

Winners: League Of Nations

The Usos are the Modern-Day Version of The Killer Bees
Posted by   |   Date: Mar 03, 2016   |   Read more


Flying at their foes in harmony, The Usos occupy airspace above the squared circle much like The Killer Bees before them.

A cohesive unit of athletes, Jimmy and Jey Uso excite the WWE fanbase with speed and soaring moves. The former tag team champs are often electric in the ring. The popularity they enjoy and the chemistry they have with each other has one flashing back to another duo.

B. Brian Blair and Jim Brunzell formed a team in the ’80s during Vince McMahon’s aggressive expansion of WWE.

Brunzell teamed with Greg Gagne with the American Wrestling Association before that. Blair worked as a singles star in Florida. That’s not how most fans remember either man, though.

When they began to don black-and-yellow trunks and dart around the ring as a pair in the thriving WWE tag team division of that period, that’s when they truly made their mark. The Killer Bees thrilled audiences with an arsenal heavy on high-flying offense.

An Aerial Attack

Brunzell and Blair could both handle themselves on the mat, but they made their name with what they did when their feet left the canvas. Flying forearms and sunset flips filled their playbooks.

The Killer Bees were fast and fun to watch.

“Jumping Jim” Brunzell’s dropkick was one of the best the industry’s ever seen. He and Blair injected a stirring energy into their matches.

While not what they were famous for, The Killer Bees could brawl, too, if need be. As Caleb Smith wrote for Slam! Wrestling, “While known for their high flying moves and quick tags in and out of the ring, the Bees were a scrappy tandem if cornered.”

The same is true for The Usos.

Fans saw how well they handle themselves in slugfests when they battled The Wyatt Family in 2014.

But like The Killer Bees, fans don’t buy a ticket to see The Usos throw fists. They want to see the brothers defy gravity.

What The Usos do between the ropes today looks a lot different than The Killer Bees’ offense, as wrestling’s high-flying has evolved. Jumps from the top turnbuckle are more commonplace. Suicide dives happen just about every night.

But while Jimmy and Jey are hitting more daring moves, they share a reliance on the aerial part of the game with The Killer Bees. That’s their bread and butter, just as it was with Brunzell and Blair.

A Brotherly Bond

Unlike The Usos, Blair and Brunzell don’t share DNA. At times, though, it certainly felt like the two partners were brothers.

They fit so perfectly together as a pair. Their chemistry shone through in the ring or in interviews together. A part of that was due to their real-life relationship being so strong.

Blair told Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast (h/t Wrestling Inc), “We were on the road together for five years and never got into one argument.”

WWE played up their vaguely similar appearances by having them work a gimmick where they would illegally trade places in the ring. With the aid of masks, they would confuse the referee, gaining an unfair advantage if needed, a la The Bella Twins today.

There’s something symbolic about them being mistaken for each other. Once they grew popular as a team, they seemed to merge into a single unit in the public’s mind.

When Blair and Brunzell tried to work their way up the ranks as singles wrestlers, it just didn’t work. The connection with the crowd wasn’t nearly the same.

The Usos know exactly how that feels.

There is little chance of them separating or achieving notable success on their own. When Jey Uso hurt his shoulder around WrestleMania last year, WWE chose not to even showcase Jimmy. It stuck him on commentary and treated him as if he was injured as well.

It may have, but if the company didn’t give Jimmy a shot to go solo while his brother recovered from surgery, it’s not likely to do so ever.

That’s fine. The Usos are better as a duo. As twins, their chemistry is expected. They work together incredibly well, attacking in unison, in harmony.


The Killer Bees found their niche and excelled. The pair, though, wasn’t an all-around great team.

WWE couldn’t depend on them to fill time on the mic. In a land full of over-the-top characters, Blair and Brunzell felt very ordinary. They were good guys without much panache.

In interviews, they were fine but not exactly memorable.

The Usos have the same hole in their game. They bring a great energy to their promos and are plenty likable. They have just never been able to thrive as talkers.

Jimmy and Jey’s highlight reel is filled with dives and superkicks, not verbal performances.

Both teams are far better as babyfaces. Jimmy and Jey did debut as villains, but the role was ill-fitting.

Guys that friendly and winsome need to be fan favorites. Replacing their trademark grins with snarls would be a mistake.

The Killer Bees were the same way. WWE couldn’t have them play both sides as it did with Demolition or The Hart Foundation. Brunzell and Blair were perpetual nice guys.

Even so, looking back, some fans may wonder how The Killer Bees never captured the tag titles. Stiff competition is the easy answer.

A long list of stellar groups ruled the tag division in the ’80s: The Hart Foundation, The British Bulldogs, Demolition, The Dream Team. That made for a number of exciting matchups, but it kept The Killer Bees from ever reaching the top.

The Usos have the opposite problem.

They have twice been tag champs but haven’t had consistently good competition to keep things interesting. When you’re forced to face duos like RybAxel or The Ascension over the years, it’s hard to maintain momentum.

Still, The Usos have managed to inject spark into their showdowns, leaning on what helped The Killer Bees etch their names in WWE history.
