On the post-SummerSlam episode of SmackDown, Jey Uso quit WWE. WWE later moved him to their alumni section.
Jey hasn’t posted anything on Social Media since then, but he was recently spotted hanging out with a non-WWE wrestler.
The Right Hand Man was seen spending time with fellow Anoa’i family member Jacob Fatu, who is the current MLW National Openweight Champion in Major League Wrestling.
Another MLW wrestler Juicy Finau tweeted the following photo of Jacob and Jey:

No word yet on when Jey Uso is scheduled to return to WWE programming.
Speaking of Jey, news went viral earlier today that his father, WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi, has shaved his head and looks completely unrecognizable now.
Former WWE wrestler and current IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts World Champion Naomi (Trinity) posted the following photo on her Instagram story:
Since Trinity tagged Rikishi’s account, everyone thought this was indeed him and that he has changed his look.
However, that’s not the case.
Trinity has now provided clarification that this person is Rikishi’s brother.
During an interview with SK Wrestling, Rikishi was asked if he’d return to WWE TV to get involved in the ongoing Bloodline storyline.
Below is what he said:
“I would have to go silent on that one… Not until the time is right.”
As we have reported before, WWE is saving Jey vs. Jimmy for a big premium live event and want to build it properly.
That’s why this match is not happening at the Payback premium live event on September 2nd.
