The Usos are returning to tag team action next week.

WWE has announced that The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) will face The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) on SmackDown next Friday. It will be the first time The Usos have teamed together since March 2020. Jimmy suffered a torn ACL during the tapings for WrestleMania 36 last year.

Jimmy made his return to WWE television on SmackDown two weeks ago. He returned to the ring by losing to Cesaro by disqualification last Friday.

In storyline, Jimmy has been at odds with Roman Reigns since telling Reigns two weeks ago that Reigns wasn't going to disrespect him the way that he disrespects Jey Uso. Jimmy has been trying to get Jey to focus on teaming together again instead of backing up Reigns.

Jimmy went to WWE authority figure Sonya Deville on SmackDown tonight and had next week's tag team match made without telling Jey about it beforehand. When Deville asked if Jimmy had checked with Jey about it, Jimmy said he wouldn't be in her office if he didn't know that Jey had his back.

Jey wasn't happy that Jimmy had the tag match made without telling him first. Jimmy said he was looking out for Jey. Jimmy told Jey that it isn't about Reigns -- it's about them. Jey said he owed it to Reigns to tell him about the match.

When Jey was speaking with Reigns about the tag match, Reigns took exception to Jey referring to The Usos as "we." Reigns said "we" is Reigns and Jey. Reigns told Jey not to forget that everything they do represents their family and each other.

This will be the first time The Usos and The Street Profits have ever faced each other.
