Matt Hardy Opposed To The Usos Splitting, Calls The Booking "Very WWE-Ish”
Matt Hardy didn’t like WWE splitting The Usos
The Bloodline story has had WWE fans gripped for two years, with the latest chapter of the main event saga seeing The Usos formally split after Jimmy cost Jey Uso the chance to become Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at SummerSlam 2023.
The turn has led to mixed reactions from fans, with some claiming the story may have ‘jumped the shark’. Whilst not as damning in his assessment, Matt Hardy has spoken of his disagreement with the split, saying the following on the Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast:
"You know, maybe they have something genius planned and it’s going to turn into a story that blows us all away, but in my opinion, I would have rather not seen Jimmy turn on Jey. I love the fact that the Usos have been such an important part of the story, I love the fact that they had each other’s back, I love that Jey ended up making the decision to step away from Roman and go away from his brother and for Jimmy to come back; it’s very WWE-ish.
“Once again, I don’t know, maybe they have something that’s going to blow us away, I don’t know. But I wouldn’t have wanted to split The Usos. I think they were a great tag team, they’re most valuable when they’re together rather than feuding against each other. I would have rather seen Jimmy return and still have Jey’s back in some way and I don’t know where I would have taken the angle, but I wasn’t crazy about the idea of Jimmy betraying Jey and joining back with Roman," said Hardy.
Hardy is no stranger to feuding with a blood relative, with The Hardys feuding in both WWE and TNA/IMPACT to mixed reactions.
