The Usos Reveal Advice They Gave To Solo Sikoa
The Usos discuss their brother's development
While many would have expected Joseph Fatu to link up with his family in The Bloodline after he signed with WWE last year, the 29-year-old has instead distanced himself from Roman Reigns and The Usos, competing as Solo Sikoa on NXT.
Speaking about their brother on After The Bell, The Usos revealed they told him not to look like them and to find his own path in WWE.
"Coming from a big family, it's hard to make your own footprint. We told lil bro, 'You have to find your way. We have been through this fire before. You have to find what works for you.' He's down there doing his thing. Every single day he's like, 'Did you watch the match? What about my promos? Is there anything you can tell me about what to do?' First thing is, don't look like us because we look a lot alike. 'Alright, bet.' He had long hair, he chopped his hair, dyed his hair, went from the Air Forces to barefoot. He's uncomfortable in the ring barefoot, but he's doing whatever he needs to do to make his own mark," Jimmy Uso said.
"I told him he'll find it. I remember Randy (Orton) telling us that he wasn't Randy Orton until six years in the game. It started to dawn on me, sitting there like, 'that's what it is.' The grind of constantly throwing at the wall and whatever sticks, sticks. Whatever don't stick, keep going. All we do is throw at the wall."
Jey then revealed the advice he had given to his younger brother, adding: "Always trying to evolve. That's the game. You either get left behind or stay in the mix. When you get here, you either sink or swim. That's as simple as it can get. It doesn't matter if you're running things down there or wherever, when you get up in here, we're going to find out what you're made of and you either crack or deliver like we do. The sucky part about this is, little brother, it's going to be hard. We're all big timing and then you have little bro, he's next in line. It's going to be hard for him and he knows this, but stick to the script and we always have his back. We love him and he's doing great down there. I can't wait to expand this Bloodline, trust me, we're expanding. Deep."
Since his WWE debut in late 2021, Sikoa has been a featured performer on the developmental brand, facing the likes of Gunther, Cameron Grimes, and Roderick Strong.
