New attitude, new look

New 'tude, new look

Many times when a wrestler goes from "good" to "bad" or vice versa their attitude obviously changes, but more often than not, their look stays the same. But the recent change of heart by Jimmy and Jey Uso came with a wardrobe revamp. I must say I like it.

The Usos first came to WWE as heels in 2010. I don't know how much time passed, but eventually the brothers become fun loving Samoans who started painting their faces. In addition to the colorful face paint, the duo also added brightly colored gear to their attire. They truly embraced being good guys.

Recently though Jimmy and Jey took out their frustrations on American Alpha. When they appeared for the first time after the change of heart, the twins wore black tights, white shoes and white hoodies to the ring. The makeup was gone. I must say I liked the look.

I realize changing the looks of Superstars every time they change their attitude isn't always feasible. Many of the Superstars have been branded with a certain look. There's a lot of money wrapped up in merchandising. But I think WWE has really done it right with the Usos. I think their turn and the change in looks that have come with it is exactly what this tag team needed.
