In the dynamic world of WWE, Jey Uso, one half of the record-setting WWE Tag Team Champions, is steering his career in a new direction. Renowned for his tag team prowess alongside his brother, Jimmy Uso, Jey is now venturing into the realm of singles competition with his eyes firmly set on the prestigious Intercontinental Championship.
In an exclusive interview with Carl Lamarre for Billboard, Jey Uso expressed his ambitious drive to capture the Intercontinental title, a championship steeped in history and prestige. "The IC [Intercontinental Championship] title is at the top of my list," Uso stated emphatically.
His determination is fueled by a legacy of greatness, citing inspirations from within his family - his father and his uncle, Umaga, both former IC champions - to wrestling legends like Shawn Michaels and his personal idol, Razor Ramon.
Uso's desire to join these ranks of greatness isn't just a personal goal; it's a testament to his evolution as a performer. With a history of headlining major WWE events this year, including WrestleMania and SummerSlam, Jey Uso is no stranger to the spotlight.
His next major appearance will be at Survivor Series, where he will participate in the high-stakes men's WarGames Match.
