The Usos are considered one of the most successful tag teams in WWE history, having won multiple championships under different regimes. However, former WWE writer Dave Schilling recently claimed on Twitter that the company had planned to punish the duo for forfeiting during a tag team gauntlet match on SmackDown. According to Schilling, WWE allegedly wanted to book The Usos in a ladder match at WrestleMania 35 as a form of punishment, but instead, they were punished by Alexa Bliss for unknown reasons.
It’s unclear why The Usos forfeited during the match, but McMahon’s reaction suggested that it was an act of defiance. Despite the alleged punishment plan, The Usos were booked in a Fatal-4-Way at WrestleMania 35 and retained their titles. The Usos’ rebellious attitude may have been the reason behind their decision to forfeit, but they have continued to prove themselves as a dominant tag team in WWE.
As for what WWE has planned for The Usos at WrestleMania 39, it remains to be seen. However, their past success and accomplishments suggest that they will likely continue to be a prominent force in the tag team division.
Instead, the Usos were punished by Alexa Bliss for some reason.
