• Jimmy Uso & Naomi Reportedly Trying To Get Fired By WWE
As we all know, TMZ Sports reported that former SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso was arrested after a dispute with cops.
Below is what TMZ posted:
“WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso — half of the popular Usos tag team — was arrested after a drunken dispute with cops in Detroit … TMZ Sports has learned.
The 33-year-old — who’s the son of WWE HOF’er Rikishi — and his wife, fellow WWE Superstar Naomi, were pulled over near downtown Detroit … after cops say Naomi was driving the wrong direction on a one-way street.
According to our police sources, cops say their 2018 Dodge Journey reeked of booze … so they ordered Naomi out of the car.
We’re told while Naomi talked to cops, Jimmy got out of the car — despite commands from police — and took off his shirt and jacket and squared up like he wanted to fight.
We’re told the officer took out his taser ’cause he was scared for his safety.
Jimmy ultimately settled down and complied with their commands … then he was handcuffed, and arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction.
He was taken to jail … and later posted bond.”
WWE issued the following statement on Jimmy’s arrest:
“Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions.”
According to Fox News, a source close to WWE has told them that Jimmy & Naomi are trying to get fired by WWE as they’re interested in the idea of going to All Elite Wrestling:
“A source closely connected to the WWE told Fox News on Thursday, ‘Uso and his wife want to get fired by the WWE, so this arrest just might be the shoe that drops.’
According to the source, a new wrestling entity called All Elite Wrestling has drawn much interest from a number of wrestlers currently under contract with the WWE.”
The Usos are set to face Shane McMahon & The Miz for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles tonight at Elimination Chamber 2019 PPV.
