“Definitely soon. January/February I’m going to say. He’s doing good, Uce. You know he’s been watching me every week. Inspiring him. You know he’s calling me after every SmackDown telling me what I did wrong, what was dope, just everything being a brother, man. I just can’t wait to have him out her on the road with.
We have seen Jimmy Uso at both Clash of Champions and Hell in a Cell during both of his brother Jey’s fantastic Universal Championship matches with their real-life cousin, Roman Reigns.
