‘Mami’ tried her sultry moves to distract Jey Uso but he zoomed in on at the task at hand. Eventually, Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes worked as a team to deliver Rhodes’ finisher Cody Cutter and, finally, the Cross Rhodes to become the new Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.

Then later in 2008, he won the same championship again with Ted DiBiase, with whom he later formed the faction, The Legacy, including Randy Orton.
