Jey Uso out six months after shoulder surgery

Although he was dealing with a shoulder injury suffered at a SmackDown taping just a couple weeks before, Jey Uso worked the WrestleMania 31 pay-per-view (PPV) in a Fatal 4-Way match for the tag team titles. Unfortunately, he made it even worse in that match and hasn't been seen since.

Now, has provided an update that he'll be out for some six months or so after undergoing surgery:

"At WrestleMania, Jey suffered an anterior shoulder dislocation on the left arm, which was later evaluated back in Florida," said WWE physician Dr. Stephen Daquino, who also confirmed that Jey underwent surgery last week to tighten his rotator cuff and shoulder capsule to repair the injury, which had been aggravating him leading into WrestleMania.

This is a major blow to an already struggling tag team division. Naomi has turned heel and appears headed for something bigger in the Divas division but this leaves Jimmy Uso on his own for the first time.
