Back when Roman Reigns was initially brought up to the main roster, Vince McMahon and Triple H made sure to instruct the creative department to avoid coming up with anything that would reveal that he was a Samoan. The two felt that his ethnicity would cause fans to stereotype him and not view him as a potential main event performer. WWE has recently softened on that stance lately by revealing that Jimmy Uso is related to Reigns.

Even though she is one of the more talked about performers on the show, Naomi revealed that she has been officially removed from the cast of Total Divas. WWE has been wanting to get rid of her story line with Jimmy Uso for quite some time now. It should be noted that she was dropped from the cast once before, only to have the people in charge change their mind and bring her back.

In a rather odd move, Big Show acted very much like a baby face at a live event in Vancouver over the weekend. It makes sense for him to do that against Miz, as they are working a three way feud with Ryback. However, Show went the distance by helping Jimmy Uso to the backstage area. Generally, a heel would just leave the attacked baby face in the ring.

The tag team division in WWE is about to receive a bit of a boost. Jey Uso is close to making his return to the ring after spending several months recovering from a shoulder injury. His brother, Jimmy Uso, has been sparingly used because the creative department did not want to come up with new things for him to do during that time frame. A feud with New Day is highly likely.

When his brother went down with a serious injury, Jimmy Uso was faced with the prospect of not being used for the next several months. However, WWE has figured out something for him to do. He is filling in as a commentator on Smackdown now. Uso will more than likely be in that role throughout the summer.

If reports about Tyson Kidd needing to take a year off to recover from a spinal chord injury are true, then Antonio Cesaro will definitely be moved back to the singles division by WWE. There is no way that the company would have him sitting on the sidelines for that long. He is far too talented to be given the Jimmy Uso treatment.

When you attend a live event, more often than not, the good guy is going to win. WWE does that because they want to send the fans home happy. However, the move came as a bit of a shock when they allowed Jimmy Uso to beat Wade Barrett at a show in Germany. Barrett is the one receiving a push and working a title match at Extreme Rules, whereas Uso is floating around as a singles competitor because Jey Uso is injured.

Some good news and bad news for the Usos. The good news is that Jey Uso successfully underwent surgery to repair a lot of injuries to his body. The bad news is that he is now required to miss approximately six months of action. That means that their involvement in the tag team division has to be halted. WWE might still use Jimmy Uso as a singles performer, but he will more than likely be relegated to working low profile matches.

Since he is still injured, Jey Uso was told by WWE to stay home during the tour of Europe. They feel that it would be a better use of his time to get better instead of being protected during tag team matches. He was written off early at Wrestlemania, but management only made him work the match because it was the biggest pay per view of the year. Jimmy Uso is currently working as a singles performer on the tour.

It looks like WWE and E! have had a change of heart when it comes to the cast of Total Divas. Initially, Naomi was removed from the reality television show because producers felt that her relationship with Jimmy Uso was no longer a draw. In a press release by the network today, it has been revealed that she is now back on the show. No word yet on why the change was made, but it would explain the current push she is receiving.
