In a recent episode of his podcast, "Wrestling with Freddie," former WWE scriptwriter Freddie Prinze Jr. lavished praise on professional wrestler Jey Uso, heralding him as the most celebrated figure in pro wrestling today. Prinze Jr.
analyzed a recent segment from "WWE SmackDown" in which The Bloodline, featuring Uso and Roman Reigns, captivated the audience. The pair delivered an electric face-to-face encounter, setting the stage for their anticipated match at SummerSlam.
In dissecting this segment, Prinze Jr. shed light on why Uso has captured the hearts of WWE fans, despite being a wrestler of few words.
"Uso's Mastery Over Body Language"
"Jey Uso exhibits an unrivaled command of body language in the pro wrestling sphere," the former WWE writer confidently affirmed.
"Despite having fewer lines than other leading wrestling superstars like MJF, Sami Zayn, and even the quick-witted Kevin Owens, the audience resonates with Uso's every move." Prinze Jr. argued that Uso's vivacity and unpredictable demeanor keep fans riveted, unable to divert their gaze.
In his view, this magnetic appeal has solidified Uso's status as the most revered figure in pro wrestling today. "His dynamic presence and volatile aura make him a compelling figure to watch. Currently, Uso is not just a part of the major storyline in pro wrestling; he is the central character," Prinze Jr.
stated. "He is, without doubt, the one wrestler that fans care about the most right now." The actor-director also commended the subtle brilliance of the segment, particularly singling out Paul Heyman's double-edged comments that managed to praise and critique Uso simultaneously.
Prinze Jr. believes this "SmackDown" segment was the week's highlight in pro wrestling. This moment of recognition for Uso comes as he prepares for an opportunity to clinch his first world title at SummerSlam. Here, he will contend with Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and stake a claim to the title of "The Tribal Chief." It is the perfect stage for Uso to demonstrate further why, in the words of Freddie Prinze Jr., he is currently the 'most over dude' in professional wrestling.
