While appearing on a recent installment of the Edge & Christian Podcast of Awesomeness, The Usos talked about their heel turn and mentioned that they couldn’t wait to turn heel.
“We couldn’t wait to turn heel. We noticed when we were doing the babyface run, it was cool, it was a whole other side of us, being the good guy and running with that. And then, if you don’t adapt and evolve in this business, you’ll get left behind, and we felt that. We started to feel it, something has to be done, we gotta change something. And then, [we were told], ‘tonight we’re gonna turn them heel.’ We finally got to do that, and when we did, we knew that this was gonna be the time, and this was really gonna be our breakout. This is really gonna be who we are. The babyface Usos, that was us too, but this is really gonna be who we are… We from the Anoa’i family. Samoan family wrestling. They naturally work like heels. And I feel like we naturally work like heels. So it’s way easier, more comfortable, [we actually] get to talk crap to somebody, we barely got to talk when we were babyfaces… We’re glad we made this move.”
