Despite weekend DWI arrest, Jey Uso appears on SmackDown Live

Fresh off a rough weekend in Texas, one half of the SmackDown tag team champions appeared tonight (Jan. 16) on the blue brand looking no worst for wear. In a backstage interview segment with his brother Jimmy, Jey Uso (real name Joshua Samuel Fatu) also got some mic time.

On Sunday morning in Texas, Jey Uso was charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and released the same day.

The WWE released a statement to PW Insider commenting on Fatu’s recent arrest.

“Joshua Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions. We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials.”

Will Jey Uso’s recent run-in have any affect on the outcome on The Usos upcoming tag title defense versus Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin at the Royal Rumble?
