The Usos Achieve WWE First
The Usos are “the ones” especially when it comes to breaking records as a legendary WWE Tag Team Title that are having the best run of their careers.
In November 2022, The Usos (twin brothers Jimmy & Jey Uso) set the record for the longest Tag Team Title reign in WWE history. The record was previously held by The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods), who had the record from August 2015 until it ended on December 18, 2016.
At the WWE Money in the Bank 2021 Premium Live Event, The Usos won the Smackdown Tag Team Titles from Rey & Dominik Mysterio (on the Kickoff Show) and they have been champions ever since.
As of Friday, March 10th, The Usos have held the Smackdown Tag Team Titles for an incredible 600 days. They are the only team to reach 500 days and now 600 days.
On the May 20, 2022 episode of Smackdown, The Usos beat RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Matt Riddle) to win the Raw Tag Team Titles, so they have held those titles for nearly ten months. That was also Randy Orton’s last match in WWE before having back surgery.
In the main event of Smackdown on March 10th, The Usos did a promo with Jey talking about how they are united again because he is loyal to his family. The promo was interrupted by Cody Rhodes and Sami Zayn, who got into a brawl with their rivals from The Bloodline as the show went off the air. Jey’s promo was a follow-up to his “shocking” attack against Sami Zayn earlier this week on Raw.
The Usos’ run as WWE Tag Team Champions has taken place at the same time as their cousin Roman Reigns has held the WWE Universal Champion for over 900 days. Reigns added the WWE Championship to his collection at WrestleMania 38, so he’s been the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion for the past 11 months.
At WrestleMania 39, The Usos are expected to defend the WWE Tag Team Titles (or perhaps just Smackdown titles) against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. However, the story isn’t there yet with three weeks to go until WrestleMania takes place at SoFi Stadium on April 1st and April 2nd.
