The Bloodline has been a dominant force in WWE for years, with Roman Reigns and The Usos leading the charge. The trio has portrayed an unbreakable bond, resulting in their massive success.

Jey and Jimmy held the SmackDown Tag Team Championships for over 600 days and RAW Tag Team titles for almost a year before losing them at WrestleMania 39 to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The Tribal Chief is closing in on 1000 days as the reigning Universal Champion and has been the undisputed champion for over a year.

While they have been portrayed as cousins on television, The Usos revealed in an interview with Chris Van Vliet that Reigns is their uncle. However, in terms of blood relations, they are actually Roman Reigns’ first cousins once removed.

All three are members of the Anoa’i family, a renowned bloodline in the professional wrestling industry. Legends like The Rock, Yokozuna, The Wild Samoans, and Umaga are some notable wrestlers from the family.


Fans may know that Rikishi is Jimmy and Jey Uso’s father, but some may not realize that he is a first cousin to Roman Reigns. While The Usos may refer to Roman as their uncle out of respect in family circles, they are biologically his first cousins, once removed.

Regardless of their exact relation, The Bloodline’s bond is undeniable and continues to dominate the WWE landscape.
