"It’s Not A Story, That’s Really Them" - Rikishi Comments On Roman Reigns & The Usos Storyline On WWE SmackDown
The trio have been killing it on the blue brand
Rikishi has commented on the ongoing storyline between Roman Reigns and his sons Jimmy and Jey Uso, declaring his pride for how they're representing the Samoan Dynasty while revealing they've always fought.
Reigns, as the Universal Champion, has been the driving force behind WWE Friday Night SmackDown for almost a year. As 'The Head Of The Table', Reigns has been frequently involved with his family, feuding with Jey Uso last year before he became his right-hand man.
With Jimmy returning to WWE television last month, all three are now frequently involved in the main-event segment of SmackDown, and Rikishi is delighted with how the trio are representing the family.
Speaking during the Steel City Comic Con, Rikishi said: "Well, first of all I’m proud of them [The Usos & Roman Reigns]. We know where they come from, what bloodline that they represent and these boys here and Roman, they’re all trained professionally and to be able to see your family members headline SmackDown, headline WrestleMania, headline Monday Night Raw, it’s a beautiful thing.
"It’s prideful for us, because they came in during the time after the mighty Yokozuna. If you guys haven’t had the chance to see the absolutely tremendous documentary that WWE had put together on the mighty Yokozuna, check it out. But, these guys come in from a family behind us, from a family that’s from Umaga to Yokozuna, The Rock, I mean the list goes on and to be able to see your kids and your nephew out there doing it out there and representing and holding it down, it’s a beautiful thing.
"I think the storylines they’re going through as of now, I think it’s beautiful. It’s not a story, that’s really them. They’ve been fighting like that since they were kids in the backyard and now to be able to do that on-camera and get paid for it, I’d say it’s a beautiful thing. Samoan Dynasty is winning."
