Jimmy Uso Reportedly Backstage At SmackDown

Jimmy Uso is reportedly backstage ahead of tonight’s edition of WWE Smackdown.

The news was broken by respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer via a short tweet earlier this evening.

Uso made unfortunate headlines earlier this week after being arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) late on Monday evening.

Celebrity news outlet TMZ, who broke the initial story of Uso’s arrest, reported that the multiple time former tag team champion had been booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge, in addition to citations for speeding and running a red light.

This was, regrettably, not the star’s first DUI-related arrest, having been picked up for a similar offence back in 2019, albeit he was later found not guilty in court.

WrestleVotes later reported that the arrest had ‘pissed off’ some ‘high level people in power’ within the WWE, which was likely exacerbated by the star’s prominent role on Smackdown of late.

Whether or not Uso appears on screen will now be a major talking point going into the show.

Smackdown is currently set to feature two Money in the Bank qualifier matches, which are Seth Rollins vs Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin.
