WWE announced last night during SmackDown that New Day will defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against Lucha House Party, The Miz & John Morrison and former NXT tag team The Forgotten Sons, with The Usos notably absent.
Some speculated that the duo, like their cousin Roman Reigns, had decided that they didn’t want to come to tapings and wrestle during the Coronavirus pandemic, however, it has emerged that this is not why they have been left out of the title match for the upcoming pay-per-view.
Ringside News, who have had a good track record of backstage scoops in recent months, is reporting that Jimmy Uso is actually out with an injury and is expected to miss several months worth of TV.
“Jimmy Uso suffered a knee injury during his last appearance on the blue brand. We are told the current prognosis is that he will be out of action for six to nine months.”
Jimmy is believed to have injured his knee during the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match that was taped for WrestleMania. The match featured Uso taking on John Morrison and Kofi Kingston in a triple threat ladder match for the tag team titles.
Everyone at WrestleTalk would like wish Jimmy a speedy recovery from this rather unfortunate injury. We hope to see him back on TV and wrestling again before too long.
