Cody Rhodes & Jey Uso Told To Stop Performing Their Modified 1D By Bully Ray
Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso urged to stop using their 1D
Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso have been told to change up their tag team finisher by one of the men who initially endorsed the 1D in Bully Ray.
Rhodes and Uso have been teaming together in recent months and they had a brief run with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles before dropping them back to Judgment Day's Finn Balor and Damian Priest. The babyfaces failed to regain the tag team championships in the main event of Monday Night Raw on November 13.
Rhodes and Uso have used a modified version of the 1D as their tag team finisher of Jey Uso lifting the opponent before Rhodes connects with a Cody Cutter. The move has been botched on multiple occasions, although it does look impressive when it comes together without any issues. These botches have prompted Bully Ray to tell Rhodes and Uso to stop using the move, however.
"Cody and Jey need to stop doing that bootleg 1D, they have to stop doing it. It has not gone well for them once... it's not a little off, it's always off. When a move goes wrong, it looks bad for the people doing the offensive move, because it makes you look like you don't know how to do your own move. I would probably take that and get rid of it out of the repertoire," Bully Ray said on Busted Open Radio.
The 1D is extremely similar to the 3D that was used by The Dudley Boyz. Bully Ray and D-Von Dudley gave The Usos permission to use the 1D when they debuted the move in 2022.
