The Bloodline To Join Exclusive Club At WWE Backlash
The Bloodline group will be joining an exclusive club when they take part in a big match at WWE Backlash.
At WWE Backlash later tonight in San Juan, Puerto Rico, The Bloodline trio of Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso & Solo Sikoa will team up against WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, who are joined by Matt Riddle for the big six-man tag team match.
What’s interesting about the match is that The Usos are the older brothers of Solo. It’s so rare for three brothers to team up in a tag team match that it has only happened once before. As Wrestling Stats & Info @WWEStats on Twitter pointed out, the only other time it happened was Survivor Series 1993.
What do The Bloodline and The Hart family have in common?
Only once in @WWE has there been a PPV tag team match that features 3+ siblings (and no other partners). It was Survivor Series 1993; the Harts.
At #WWEBacklash, The @WWEUsos & @WWESoloSikoa join them on this list.

That Survivor Series 1993 match saw Bret Hart team with brothers Owen, Bruce & Keith. At the time, only Bret and Owen were signed to WWE deals while Bruce & Keith were added just for that match.
In this case, it’s the first time that three brothers are teaming up in a six-man tag team match. It’s a unique spot for The BLoodline group which has faced some turmoil of late since The Usos lost the WWE Tag Team Titles to Owens & Zayn at WrestleMania 39 and failed to get the titles back in the rematch.
The pressure is on The Bloodline to win against Owens, Zayn & Riddle especially knowing that Roman Reigns will be back on Smackdown next week. Paul Heyman has issued some warnings towards The Usos while Solo has teased beating up his own brother, so it will be interesting to see what happens at Backlash and how things progress after that.
Backlash takes place tonight from San Juan, Puerto Rico with this lineup:
* Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar
* Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens & Matt Riddle vs. The Bloodline – Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso & Solo Sikoa
* San Juan Street Fight: Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest
* Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. Omos
