Jimmy Uso has been one of the mainstays of Friday Night Smackdown since his return earlier this year. However, he recently got arrested and was charged with DUI and yet he was present on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. Jimmy Uso’s alcohol death risk also shocked fans.
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns is certainly one of the top competitors in the company right now and has been on a solid run as the WWE Universal Champion, but he is losing his top spot to two WWE Smackdown women. Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship against WWE Hall Of Famer Edge and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match in the main event of Night Two of WrestleMania 37. Roman Reigns might also be losing Paul Heyman eventually.
Roman Reigns also successfully retained his WWE Universal Championship against Cesaro in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. Roman Reigns was scheduled to defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio at the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. However, that match was shifted to a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown.
Roman Reigns would successfully defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio as well. Many fans have also been wondering whether Brock Lesnar will be making his return to WWE television eventually and feud with The Tribal Chief.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Jimmy Uso was not removed from WWE television as he is far too important in the current storyline to remove.
“There is stuff in the plans that they feel is far too important and they don’t want it screwed up and that’s the answer. You would think, third [DUI], bad look — gotta pretend it didn’t happen.”
