Freddie Prinze Jr Names Jey Uso WWE SmackDown's 'Star'

During a recent riveting episode of "Wrestling With Freddie," former WWE writer and renowned actor Freddie Prinze Jr. turned the spotlight on Jey Uso, whom he unreservedly praised as "the star" of "WWE SmackDown," particularly in the lead-up to SummerSlam.

In his lively discussion, Prinze Jr. proclaimed, "We are going to go to 'Friday Night SmackDown.' Jey Uso is the star of this show right now." Reflecting on his earlier statement on Mark Henry's radio show 'Busted Open,' he continued, "I said Jey Uso is the most over cat, and that was before he became the most over cat just because — I wasn't the first one to call it.

Everybody saw where the story was going, but Jey's ability to execute at such a high level and keep you interested — I've never seen a wrestler get cut to more when they're not talking than Jey Uso."

s admiration for Uso's talents didn't end there. He elaborated on Uso's unique charisma, saying, "Whoever he's in a promo with, just know the camera's not going to be on you but for a second. You could basically just walk out with your notes and just read them because this dude is pacing back and forth, letting you know every thought and emotion on his face.

It's crazy, man. I don't even know how to describe it because there's no actor that does this. He's just so freaking expressive and it's not over the top. Or if it is, he's so committed to it that it doesn't play over the top." In the WWE universe, Uso's prowess is more than just talk; it's about to be put to the ultimate test.

This Saturday in Detroit, Uso is set to challenge the formidable Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. This will be their third singles face-off since the intriguing Bloodline storyline began in 2020. But this upcoming match is unique and shrouded with anticipation.

This time, Uso vs. Reigns will be contested under "Tribal Combat" rules, where all traditional constraints are off, and anything goes. Reigns' championship and his highly coveted "Tribal Chief" title will be on the line. With all these elements converging, fans are on the edge of their seats, eager to witness how this intense rivalry will unfold.

The endorsement from Freddie Prinze Jr. adds yet another layer of intrigue and sets the stage for what promises to be an unforgettable clash.
