Jey Uso quit the WWE live on Friday Night Smackdown, leaving many to speculate if he is really leaving WWE.
Rumors about Jey Uso moving to AEW have cropped up overnight, as well as theories that he could return to win the Royal Rumble in January 2024.
Fans have been worried about Jey Uso’s future in the WWE, hoping that this resignation of his from the Bloodline, Smackdown and the WWE is just part of a company storyline.
Is Jey Uso Really Leaving WWE?
Despite quitting his job with the WWE on Smackdown, Jey Uso is not really leaving the WWE.
Him quitting, following a confrontation with his brother Jimmy and the rest of the Bloodline, is part of the ongoing saga of Roman Reigns’ three-year long world title reign.
There have been no credible reports of Jey Uso getting out of his WWE contract, as the former World Tag Team Champion is content with his current role in WWE.
Jey Uso has main evented multiple pay per views this year, including both WrestleMania and Summerslam in 2023.
He has never been pushed as hard as he is now, and Jey Uso looks to be in prime position to begin a main event singles run in the company.
Many have theorized he could be the one to beat Roman Reigns – given how close he came to victory at Summerslam – although that accolade will likely go to Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 40.
While some people have speculated that Jey Uso is going to AEW, he will remain in the WWE for the foreseeable future.
Jey and Jimmy Uso’s WWE contract is said to expire in 2024, so unless Triple H wants him to sit on the sidelines for another year, he will surely be back to face off with The Bloodline sooner, rather than later.
WWE have updated their advertising for Survivor Series 2023, adding Jey Uso onto the poster for the event.
However, this does not confirm that he is returning to the WWE yet.
In fact, his father Rikishi is set to referee a match at Payback 2023, likely to be Jey Uso vs Jimmy Uso (or perhaps involving Solo Sikoa or Roman Reigns).
Hamish is a writer and podcaster and wrestling fan who is a key part of the Atletifo team.
After playing countless hours of WrestleMania X8 on the Gamecube, he discovered Rey Mysterio getting his head crushed by The Great Khali, and thus a love for professional wrestling was born.
He is also a Media Graduate, as well as writing for multiple sites about Premier League football and the culture of Wales – his home country.
