The Usos didn’t feature in this week’s WWE Draft as their absence from television continues.
Jimmy and Jey’s last televised match took place on the July 29 episode of Raw where they were a part of the triple threat tag team match that saw Gallows and Anderson capture the red brand’s tag gold.
The reason for their absence is down to Jimmy’s arrest for DUI near Pensacola, Florida back in July. Because of the arrest, the former SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions were not allowed into Canada for SummerSlam weekend and haven’t been on the road since.
And it would seem a return to our screens might still be a while away from happening if a report from Dave Meltzer on Figure Four Online is to be believed: “Regarding The Usos, after Jimmy’s most recent arrest for a DUI in late July, The Usos and Naomi were all taken off the road. While they were at a recent television taping backstage, there is right now no creative for them nor return date, nor a decision regarding which brand they will be with. Because of that, they weren’t involved in the draft.”
