A WWE Hall of Famer wants to see a heated rivalry come to an end at WrestleMania 40.

At WrestleMania 40, brothers will collide as Jimmy Uso has taken up Jey Uso’s challenge to face him in the ring on the grandest stage of them all. The rivalry between the two has been building ever since Jimmy cost Jey his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns at the 2023 SummerSlam.

One man who will be watching with interests is the Usos’ father, Rikishi. Speaking on his Off The Top podcast, the Hall of Famer said he was proud to see the match between his sons happen. However, recalling his matches against his own brothers, Umaga and the Tonga Kid, Rikishi worried that the two might go a bit hard on each other.

“Just proud to see this thing happening, and very nervous at the same time because as brothers, I know me and my brother Tonga Kid and Umaga did it when we work against each other. You actually kind of throw your punches a little bit bit more harder, a little bit more snug because I want everything to connect. Joey would say to me, ‘You was working and you kick me in the mouth. To me, it’s okay. We trying to make this thing, this close to making it work. But if you hit me two or three more times, damn it, now you’re off. It’s called a receipt after that.’”

Rikishi On The Usos’ WWE WrestleMania 40 Match: “It’s Going To Be A Treat For The World”

Rikishi believes Jimmy and Jey will go into WrestleMania aiming to steal the show, and he hopes when the dust settles the two will put their differences behind them and walk out together.

“But I think Jimmy and Jey, I’d have to say, what night of WrestleMania that they are on, they going to put in work, and they’re coming to steal the show because that’s the only way they know how to work. That’s the only way they were brought up. That’s the only way that they know how to do things is to be that person, to be able to perform to the highest levels, with passion and to give the fans exactly what they paid to see.

“It’s going to be definitely a treat for the world, and I can only pray that they go out there and perform, and be able to walk out there and walk back. I would love to see them walk back together. I would love to see my boys at WrestleMania 40 walk back together, holding back together, holding hands so that story can close.”
