WWE SmackDown Predictions: Jimmy Uso Will Leave WWE Too


WWE SmackDown is continuing its road to WWE PayBack 2023, which already has a plethora of rumored blockbuster matches. On this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, the new U.S. Champion Rey Mysterio will go one-on-one with Grayson Waller after their tense interactions in the Grayson Waller Effect, where Grayson Waller tried to draw a wedge in the LWO, more particularly between Escobar and Mysterio. Speaking of segments, Jimmy Uso is scheduled to return and address the situation he is currently in with his brother, Jey Uso.

In other related news regarding WWE SmackDown, thanks to the Hollywood strikes, John Cena is set to return next week on the blue brand and will actually be wrestling for the first time in India in a special live event called Superstar Spectacle. Iyo Sky is a big red target on SmackDown with the world title in her grasp, especially after she and Bayley viciously attacked and “injured” Bianca Belair backstage last week. Also, Edge had his final match in his current WWE contract against Sheamus last week in his hometown of Toronto. Will Edge go to AEW or retire for good?

With that being addressed, the following will focus on the scheduled Jimmy Uso segment and the theory of him leaving WWE just like Jey did on the road to WWE PayBack 2023.

WWE SmackDown is scheduled to take place on August 25, 2023, live on FOX, and Jimmy Uso will also leave WWE en route to WWE PayBack 2023.

Jimmy Uso Returns [Segment]

Jey Uso abruptly quit WWE two weeks ago, which throws a wrench into any plans for Jimmy Uso to battle Jey Uso at PayBack. There are now rumors about them holding off on their match until WrestleMania 40. If those rumors are true, Jimmy Uso might as well leave WWE too. It would be somewhat wise for him to solidify his feel turn by defeating a plethora of mid card opponents and feud with Solo Sikoa before getting back to Jey Uso at Mania next year. However, his story with Jey Uso speaks for itself. Maybe he will even pay a visit to Impact to meet his wife, Trinity/Naomi.

Prediction: Jimmy Uso Will Leave WWE

Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Grayson Waller [Non-Title Match]

Rey Mysterio will defeat Grayson Waller in this non-title match to gain momentum for his future title match with Austin Theory, who defeated LA Knight last week to become the number one contender. Although it is conventional for WWE to book champions to lose on live television, booking 101 says otherwise. It will be interesting to see if Santos Escobar gets included in the U.S. title match between Mysterio and Theory for a triple threat since he did earn his U.S. Title shot by pinning Theory clean when he was U.S. Champion and beating Mysterio in the #1C tournament.

Prediction: Rey Mysterio
