The Usos

The Usos were recently interviewed for WWE.com and talked about a match in which made them feel 'slighted.'

Jimmy Uso: [Long pause] Hell yeah, we felt slighted. You grind to get on these shows. One of the biggest pay-per-views of the year is SummerSlam. We had one of the hottest rivalries of the year with New Day going into SummerSlam. So to be put on the Kickoff was a slap to all our faces. Me, my brother and The New Day. We did our thing.

Jey Uso: All year we been doin' our thing, like my brother said. Hottest rivalry in the game. A tag team rivalry. The Usos and The New Day. We done killed Battleground. What else we kill, Uce?

Jimmy: Money in the Bank.

Jey: Money in the Bank. The next one was Hell in a Cell, but to put us on the Kickoff show? The Usos and The New Day on the Kickoff show, especially The Usos, when you know we deliver every single night, man. We delivered. And, all of a sudden, we got half a house full, Uce.

Jimmy: To be on a Kickoff at 5 [p .m.], and the fans aren't even in their seat? Our mindset is, we're gonna make sure this will be the hardest match to follow. And yeah, they messed up by putting us on first, but we ain't got no choice but to do it. But to make this match a hell of a tag team match, to make this match a hell of a title match, to make this match a hell of a match period … we almost hurt the show, you know what I'm saying?

What's interesting is that the Usos brought up a major problem. If WWE puts guys on early enough where their match will end up stealing the whole show because of sheer talent involved, it is very difficult for the show to maintain that level for another three hours.
