Several sets of twins have made a name for themselves in WWE
Several sets of twins have made a name for themselves in WWE

Working for WWE is a dream come true for every aspiring wrestler. However, life on the road can become lonely. Many lucky WWE Superstars have been able to work alongside their siblings, but only a handful have been hired alongside their twin.

Over the years, WWE has been able to find some interesting ways to include twins in their programming. Both male and female twins have been utilized in WWE with many becoming much more famous than others.

The following list looks at five sets of twins who made a name for themselves in WWE.


#5. Current WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos

The Usos are the sons of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi and made their debut for the company more than a decade ago.

The twin brothers were working in a furniture installation company before their cousin Umaga offered them the chance to join him on the road with WWE. The duo have since become one of the best tag teams in the history of the company.

Jimmy and Jey are identical twins, so much so that the duo were forced to wear different colored tights in order for the commentary team to tell them apart in their early careers. This is now no longer necessary since it’s now much easier to tell the difference between them.

Jimmy Uso is married to fellow WWE star Naomi whilst Jey is married to a woman outside of the wrestling business. Both stars have two children.

Unlike almost every other WWE team, The Usos have remained together for more than a decade and are yet to feud with each other.

The two brothers are currently part of a storyline with Roman Reigns as two-thirds of The Bloodline on WWE TV.

Reigns’ feud against Jey Uso last year proved that the twins could be future main event singles stars. However, the promotion doesn’t seem to have any plans to split The Usos any time soon.

#4. Former WWE Superstars The Blu Brothers

The Harris Brothers were only part of WWE for nine months, but the two men had quite the run in the company. Donning their recognizable beards and long hair, the duo was managed by former WWE Superstar Dutch Mantel under the ring name Uncle Zebekiah.

The duo made their debut at the Royal Rumble in 1995 before later going on to take part in that year’s WrestleMania. They were defeated by Lex Luger and The British Bulldog in the opening match of WrestleMania XI.

The duo then went on to feud with The Smoking Guns for several months before they departed the company in October. The duo continued to wrestle for several years after their release and went on to work for ECW before returning to WWE in 1996.

The duo were known as The Grimm Twins, and later 8-Ball and Skull. Their second run in the company ended in 1999 when they were fired from the company. Vince Russo revealed that there was a controversial reason for their exit, but this allowed the stars to move onto a career in WCW.

#3. Former WWE Superstars Gymini

Remember The #Gymini? Well, join them, @BellaTwins, @WWEUsos & more in this gallery of twins! trib.al/95GYQ55 http://t.co/owIwGqlkg6

The WWE Universe will remember Gymini as the duo who worked alongside Simon Dean throughout 2006. The two men were seen as henchmen of Dean and as a way to promote his “Simon System” nutritional supplement.

Jesse and Jake feuded with Brian Kendrick and Paul London throughout their short time in WWE and wrestled occasionally on other shows including Velocity.

Following Jesse’s injury, Gymini was sent to the company’s developmental brand called DSW where they feuded with High Impact for the Tag Team Championships.

The duo later went on to feud with The Major Brothers before they were known as Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins. Angel Williams was also unveiled to the developmental scene at the time and later went on to become Angelina Love in IMPACT.

Gymini failed to make their return to the company’s main roster before they were released in 2007. The duo have since left the wrestling business and their last update was in 2018 when the two men were working as bouncers at a Tampa Bay nightclub.

#2. Former WWE Superstars The Klimaszewski Girls

Happy Birthday to Klimaszewski Twins ๐Ÿ˜€ http://t.co/IUsoqPSDL9

The Bella Twins are easily the most famous female set of twins to wrestle for WWE throughout the company’s lengthy history, but it’s interesting to note that they aren’t the only ones.

The Klimaszewski Girls came a few years before The Bellas and whilst they were unable to make it to the company’s main roster, the two women still made quite the impact.

The two women became well known for being the Coors Light Twins, before becoming The Nitro Girls in WCW. In 2000, Diane and Elaine Klimaszewski were signed by WWE and sent to their developmental brand.

The duo were known as The Power Twins during their short time in WWE but were released from the company in 2001 before making their official debut.

The twins have since gone on to appear in several films and TV shows in cameo roles after leaving the business two decades ago.

The former WWE stars also run their own fashion line, ZipperGirls, whilst still continuing to work in the acting business.

#1. Former WWE Superstars The Bella Twins

I can’t believe that today marks 10 years since the debut of Brie(and Nikki) and the first #TwinMagic @BellaTwins time flies fast. @WWE https://t.co/smSZ5OaTVF

Nikki and Brie Bella changed the landscape of WWE following their debut in 2008. The duo arrived at the company following their audition for the annual Diva Search. Despite being eliminated, the twins were still signed by the company.

Brie made her debut as a solo superstar, before Nikki was later revealed as the reason why she would often head under the ring before she won matches.

Nikki and Brie then both went on to become Divas Champion early in their careers before leaving the company in 2012.

Nikki and Brie made their return in 2013 and were the stars that Total Divas was set around. This then led to The Women’s Revolution and Total Bellas before Nikki became the longest-reigning Divas Champion in WWE history.

The two women are now WWE Hall of Famers but opted to walk away from the company in 2019, before announcing that they were both expecting children.

Brie and Nikki have since welcomed sons who were born just hours apart, but Nikki has made it clear that because of a brain cyst, she is unable to return to WWE.
