Report: WWE Isn't Planning To Split Up The Usos
Tag teams will be receiving many more visits to the Uso Penitentiary...
The latest WWE Draft was recently held on the October 9 SmackDown and the October 12 Raw. Several Superstars ended up switching brands over the two nights, including Seth Rollins, Aleister Black, "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and Kevin Owens.
Another Superstar on the move was Naomi, who was drafted to Monday Night Raw. Following the pick, there was speculation that we could see The Usos break up as Jey was selected by SmackDown on Friday.
WWE has endeavoured not to put real-life couples on different brands over the past few years, which would mean Naomi's husband Jimmy Uso would have to land on Raw once he returns from injury in January 2021, separating him from his brother.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that no such plans are in motion, however, and WWE is not planning to split up the six-time tag team champions when Jimmy does return. Meltzer also noted real-life couples not being on the same brand isn't as big of a problem as it once was since talent are only working one day a week at the moment.
