Uso arrest angered members of WWE managementWWE management has not taken too kindly about the news of Uso’s arrest, according to WrestleVotes on Twitter, who tweeted on the matter. “I’ve spoken to two sources on the Jimmy Uso news,” WrestleVotes states. “I can say with certainty that a few ‘high-level people in power’ are extremely disappointed and legitimately pissed off over the arrest.” “This many times isn’t a mistake or bad luck,” the tweet continues. “It’s personal judgment. Not good.” It is unknown how this arrest will affect his role on WWE programming, being a prominent feature as a part of the Roman Reigns storyline.
Is WWE considering disciplinary action?While there is currently no fallout from WWE regarding the arrest, it doesn’t mean there won’t be action. Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer reported that decisions are likely going to happen soon. “The company has not made a statement on the matter either,” Meltzer stated. “Decisions, whatever they may be, will be done soon.” This is a developing story.
