WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos joined an elite group of Superstars when they granted their first individual wish by meeting Jett, 6, from Make-A-Wish!
The twin tag team said meeting the youngster before a WWE Live Event at Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena Saturday night was an honor they won’t soon forget.
“We were really happy about doing this. It’s something so genuine,” Jey Uso told WWECommunty.com. “For someone to wish to meet us, it’s a privilege. It was really cool.”
Jimmy Uso is proud to join the select group of Superstars and Divas who have made wishes come true for WWE Circle of Champions honorees.
“Especially for the first time, it’s pretty cool – because you have John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton – they do a lot of Make-A-Wish meet-and-greets. I’m sure they remember their first Make-A-Wish as well,” Jimmy said.
Jey explained that when they met Jett, they were thrilled by the youngster’s response when they happened to surprise him in the arena hallway before the Live Event.
“It was actually cool – he wasn’t even in the room. He was standing outside in the middle of the hallway. We walked up on him and just to see his face – he was so surprised,” Jey said. “He’s just a little bubbly kid. He was not afraid. He was asking us questions, interacting with us and making it easy for us.”
Jimmy told WWECommunity.com that since he and his twin are fathers, granting Jett’s wish was extra special.
“We have kids ourselves. So we know when kids get that look on their face when they’re actually happy about something, which is always a good feeling,” Jimmy said. “Seeing little Us’ excited made us 10 times more excited!”
Jett and his family, who are from Minnesota, sat at ringside to cheer on the WWE Tag Team Champions during their match.
“We had a match right after, so we were already pumped to go out there. We saw him in the first row – I think I ate some of his popcorn. He shared it with me, too. … You should have seen him!” Jimmy said. “We knew exactly where he was – he was up on the barricade, had his popcorn in his hand, cheering. It was definitely a memory.”
