Speaking with Sports Illustrated after the conclusion of WWE Day 1 last night, The Usos discussed Roman Reigns being absent from the show, giving the pair another opportunity to advance their own legacy.
Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 and will be away from WWE for a little but as he recovers. Jey Uso commented on this, saying “It felt off not having the Tribal Chief around. This match was for him. We represented, and he’s going to be OK. He’s home resting, and maybe playing some Call of Duty. We’re going to see him back soon.”
Jimmy Uso then commented on their match, saying “A hero needs a villain, and the villain needs a hero. For us, it’s the New Day. For them, it’s The Usos. When us four are in the ring, we go so hard that the rest of the show has to step their game up. When we get a chance to open the show, that’s an honor. If you’re not the main event, you damn sure want to be the ones opening it up. We do everything we can to make it really hard for everyone to follow The Usos.”
Jey Uso continued, saying “It was a sold-out show at home in the living room. We’re making the family proud with what we’re doing. It is very humbling to carry the torch for our family. And our goal is to be the number-one tag team to ever do this. No one can do it like us. Every other tag team can run up and get down up. We’re going to do it until the day we die.”
