LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — When WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso got caught having marital relations with his wife Trinity, who also happens to be a pro wrestler, on the reality show Total Divas, it was, well… real.
In one of the most memorable moments of the second season of the hit show on E!, Uso and his WWE Diva bride, known on-camera as Naomi, were sharing a luxury bus with a number of other talents, including the recently wed Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella.
Because of the close quarters, there was a strict policy against heightened levels of intimacy. But, as has been proven time and again in pro wrestling, rules are made to be broken.
“I honestly, I couldn’t hold out any longer,” Uso said. “They caught us flat out.”
Uso, one half of the WWE tag team champions with his twin brother Jey, said you could tell he wasn’t acting just by the expression on his face.
“Somebody sent me a picture of the way I was looking, it was hilarious,” he said. “Ya know, I’m on the road 24-7, so I can’t even see my wife half the time so I had to go there… I told my mom not to watch!”
Filming for the third season of Total Divas began two weeks ago, according to Uso.
On the wrestling side, he’s thrilled with the way his career is going at the moment and credits both his father, Rikishi, and late uncle, Umaga, for playing a role in their success. He noted that he feels Umaga’s presence watching over them during their matches.
“He’s going to take care of us when we dive over the ropes or do these crazy spots,” Uso said.
He said it was only when The Usos began just “letting go” and being themselves in the ring that fans began following them.
“It got really fun for us over the last two years,” Uso said.
He’s partnered with his brother since debuting with WWE in 2010, but would be interested in pursuing a singles career if given the right opportunity.
“Definitely, I would love to try and see where I stand in the singles competition as long as my brother does well, too,” he said. “One goal that I have is to headline WrestleMania against my twin brother. It’d be awesome in a tables, ladders and chairs match. Because when we grew up we saw Jeff Hardy, the Dudley Boyz, Edge and Christian have a (TLC) match. I thought it was the best match… That’s what really hooked us.”
Uso said he got so excited at one point watching the three-way match at WrestleMania 17 that he accidentally hit his brother in the nose.
The Usos will defend their tag team titles against the Wyatt Family on Sunday at Money In The Bank on pay-per-view and the WWE Network.
