During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer went into why WWE didn’t pull Jimmy Uso from television. It was also speculated that The Rock’s presence in a future WWE angle might have had a little bit to do with the situation as well.

“I don’t know if Roman went to bat for him. My gut is that they just decided that they got this main event angle. because it does include The Rock and it does lead to WrestleMania and [Jimmy Uso] is involved in it in some form and, you know they don’t wanna screw up The Rock’s angle. When I ask, it’s like there’s nothing happening. It’s not like this is something they can look the other way on, but that’s what they are doing.”

It was noted that WWE could always suspend Jimmy Uso later on. That would give him time to get back into the storyline for any angle with The Rock going into WrestleMania. We’ll have to see what happens in this situation, because The Rock is also rumored at Survivor Series and WWE is likely to take The Rock whenever they can get him.

This is certainly an interesting and complicated situation with Jimmy Uso and WWE. Stay tuned as we await further developments.
