In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, the impact of live crowds on performers cannot be overstated. Recently, Fightful Select uncovered an intriguing development revolving around WWE Superstar Jey Uso and his entrance presentation.

A standout reaction from the passionate crowd in Lyon, France, during a dark match after SmackDown and his World Heavyweight Championship bout with Damian Priest at Backlash has sparked discussions within WWE’s creative team.

As fans flooded the arena with a sea of “fireflies”, illuminating the darkness with their lit-up phones, Uso’s entrance took on an ethereal quality.

The fervor exhibited by the Lyon crowd has not gone unnoticed by WWE’s decision-makers. Reports suggest that WWE is actively encouraging American audiences to emulate the enthusiastic reception witnessed in France.

As part of this initiative, Jey Uso’s entrances will be accompanied by dimmed lighting, creating a visually striking ambiance that mirrors the atmosphere in Lyon. Furthermore, it’s been hinted that if Uso’s entrance theme resonates in mainstream settings, it could garner significant attention on WWE television, potentially elevating his character’s profile and impact.

Jey tweeted the following about this report:

“Yall ain’t got no damn choice.

Fireflies are mines now.


Jey sees this as a tribute to his late friend, Bray Wyatt.

On the Battle & Eli on the Battleground podcast, Jey revealed what JoJo Offerman texted him after watching his Backlash entrance:

“It was just with me. I don’t want to ever… you want to call them fireflies or whatever you want to call them because that’s what they are to me. I was really happy it was with me and they did it with me.

The most I was validated (was when) JoJo, Bray Wyatt’s wife, texted me and said how emotional she was watching. She saw clips of it on YouTube and that let me know right there, ‘Alright, I’m going to keep it’.

I hope it sticks with me. I never asked for it. I think they did it and I want to keep it with me now.”
