• WWE Hall Of Famer Says The Usos Need To Stop Acting Like They’re From The Hood
During a recent interview on The Hannibal TV, WWE Hall Of Famer Road Warrior Animal talked about the current tag team division in the WWE and had something to say about former SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos.
Below is what Animal said:
“Listen, it’s so hard. Just like you can’t re-do The Funks and you can’t re-do someone like The Bushwackers and The Road Warriors were veered as the best team of all time, so I don’t know if there’s anybody that’s going to be able to follow in the footsteps of The Road Warriors.
There’s a lot of great tag teams out there, but there’s always – there’s not two bigger guys – there’s always one little guy, one guy out of shape, or one short guy, or one tall guy – and even the tag teams today, they’re trying. I see the WWE is trying to make the tag team division better, but it’s still.
If you ask the fan, it still kinda stinks. I love The Usos, but The Uso Penitentiary – what’s that? You’re Samoan. Be a Samoan! Now they’re acting like guys from the hood and I love The Usos and I love the Samoans.
I’m here tonight on the card with Jacob Fatu, the Tonga Kid’s son. I see ‘Kishi all the time and his sons are doing great and they stay within their Samoan heritage, which I love because there’s a great lineage there 3,4,5 generations deep all the way from Peter Maivia. I just like it when the Samoan boys stay Samoan.”
