WWE Star Wishes WrestleMania 40 Match Build Had More Time WWE

Popular WWE star Jey Uso says he wishes WrestleMania 40 match build with his twin brother Jimmy Uso had more time.

At WWE WrestleMania 40 Night One, Jey Uso defeated Jimmy Uso in a first time ever meeting between the two twin brothers.

Despite taking place at WrestleMania 40, the build to the match began all the way back at SummerSlam 2023 – when Jimmy turned on his brother during Jey’s main event Undisputed WWE Championship match with Roman Reigns.

Although the seeds were planted eight months prior, Jey’s move from SmackDown to Raw saw the angle not properly picked up until the Road to WrestleMania was well underway.

Speaking to Mail Sport’s Alex McCarthy, Jey stated that he wishes he build to he and Jimmy’s match had more time and attention dedicated to it.

Jey explained:

“It is what it what it is. I wish we could have put more time in, maybe mine and Jimmy’s angle. It gets so crazy, uh, especially around that ‘Mania season, especially with the big angle with The Rock coming back, Rock and Cody.

“That was great. Because everyone saw the angle change right in front of them, they literally were listening to the people, like the we want Cody chants. And I really liked how we just adapted to it, and WWE just switching on the dime like that. 

“Really listening to the fans, that was the first eye opener for me. Like, oh, OK, we are really rolling with the punches here. So that’s what we’ve got to do, just keep rolling it and make sure you’re ready.”

Jey recently opened up regarding the “timing issues” which impacted he and Jimmy’s WrestleMania 40 bout – click here for full details.
