Rikishi Picks His Winner For Uso vs. Uso At WWE WrestleMania 40

Rikishi WWE Hall Of Fame

WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi faces every father’s nightmare as the bad blood between two of his sons will come to a head at WrestleMania 40.

Bloodline business will be handled on the grandest stage of them all in more than just The Rock and Roman Reigns’ matches, however, after Jey Uso issued a huge challenge on Raw. SmackDown in Memphis, Jimmy Uso accepted his twin’s challenge as WrestleMania is set to see only its third brother vs. brother match in history.

Speaking on Rikishi Fatu Off The Top, the Uso’s father Rikishi spoke about his excitement for the bout and teased that he wouldn’t be far away if needed:

Man, that’s exciting news. I’m excited, to be able to have the boys out there. Another historic…Bloodline, family tree, whatever you want to call it, but to have my sons out there on WrestleMania finally going after it together, this is a big deal for the whole fans. You’re finally gonna see the dream match, Uso vs. Uso, Yeet vs. No Yeet. It’s gonna be exciting. I’m very happy to be the last to know about it.

I’m not too far from WrestleCon. I’ll be there at WrestleCon. I’m gonna be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I’m not too far, that’s all I can say. I’m not too far from the stadium. I’m not too far from the stadium where WrestleMania will be.

Of course, they got a lot of Ubers, they got limousines over there, who knows? But I am not too far from the stadium. The news was that [it’s] Yeet versus No Yeet. But where’s the man that eats? I’ll tell you, I’m not gonna be far.

Rikishi Chooses Yeet Or No Yeet For WrestleMania

As far as who will come out on top, Rikishi put his business head on to suggest WWE should have Jey Uso come out on top but ultimately he just hopes both his sons can walk away from the ring at WrestleMania united:

You know what? That’s a hard one, but I gotta put my feelings aside as a father. Jey is having a hell of a year as a single. Jimmy’s the same as far as being involved in the group, with the Bloodline. So to see the steam that Jey is having as a singles career, it only makes sense from a business standpoint, as if I was on the board of TKO or WWE. We’d have to go with ‘Yeet’.

I would feel that it would be the best business move, is to let Jey get the upper hand for WrestleMania against his brother. But on a personal level, it’s a win-win situation for the boys, that they’re able to go out there. They bring it out when they work with a lot of people, the passion, because they always want to steal the show. But this one here, working against each other, this is really gonna be ‘show the world’ type of sh*t, like let’s me and you do this, and let’s announce to the world what exactly these two brothers can do.

To see my sons going against each other for this dream match for the fans, it’s a win situation for the fans, for the company, for the family, and I’m so proud of them. I just pray that they walk out there, I know they’re gonna give it all they got, but I also pray that they are able to walk back out the squared circle together, hand in hand.

Jimmy Uso could find himself banned from ringside on night two of WrestleMania alongside the rest of The Bloodline should Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins defeat The Rock and Roman Reigns on night one of the showpiece event.

However, if Rikishi gets his wish and Jimmy and Jey Uso walk away from the ring together, then The Usos might walk away from The Bloodline and Roman Reigns once and for all.
