Rikishi had a rather impressive list of accolades during his time in the WWF, before it became the WWE. He won the Intercontinental Championship once and the Tag Team Championship multiple times.

He was introduced for by The Usos, the tag team comprised of his sons. They were rather entertaining and hilarious in their intro, talking about his famous thonged behind, which they admitted shocked them when they saw it on television. Reminding everyone that it put them through college and bought them Christmas gifts, before getting all serious and introducing him

It almost makes you wish the WWE would let them talk on the microphone a little more or at least write some of their own lines. It includes a Rikishi tailored version of a rather famous line from Ric Flair.
