Jey Uso’s message to a late Samoan star

Taking to Instagram, Jey Uso shared a message which serves as a tribute to legendary WWE star, Umaga. In the post, Uso wrote, “December 4th. This one is for you”. This message could mean that Main Event Uso decided to dedicate the fight and the probable title win to the late star. Coincidentally, Umaga passed away on the same day as Uso’s title shot, December 4, more than a decade ago. The twin Usos and their younger brother happen to be the nephews of The Samoan Bulldozer.
