Some disappointing news coming out of the WWE today with worrying rumors having been confirmed by the company themselves.
The WWE roster know that they put their bodies on the line every time they step out in front of a live audience, and unfortunately for one Superstar he has found out that injury comes with the territory.
After much speculation in recent weeks, dating back to his absence from the show-stopping WrestleMania 31, we now know that Jay Uso - one part of tag-team sensations The Uso Brothers - will be out of action for six months after undergoing a tough surgical procedure.

WWE doctor Dr. Stephen Daquino had this to say when updating fans on Jey Uso's status:
"At WrestleMania, Jey suffered an anterior shoulder dislocation on the left arm, which was later evaluated back in Florida. It looks like his return is estimated at about six months."

More specifically, Jey Uso also went under the knife to address rotator cuff and shoulder capsule issues that had been ongoing through March.
Jey Uso entered WrestleMania 31 already dealing with a shoulder injury and it looks like he only made it worse by trying to rush back and compete.The fact he was involved in the tag-team match for literally five seconds suggested things were bad.
The injury to his brother though does open an intriguing angle for his brother Jimmy. Now the lone healthy Uso brother, there will of course be no tag-team competition leaving a run at a few singles matches as a potential alternative to fill the void.
There remains the possibility that this WWE update is simply a storyline in order to facilitate Jimmy's singles run but this is unclear at the time of writing.
According to Wrestlezone though there is no doubt that he has undergone legitimate surgery. With the health of other superstars, namely Daniel Bryan, having hit the headlines this week, the surgery and time out for Jey Uso further points to the real danger top Superstars put themselves in front of on a nightly basis.
With the six month time frame, don't expect to see The Uso Brothers teaming up again until October at the earliest.
What do you think WWE fans? Can Jimmy Uso make it on his own, or will the WWE regret this latest injury set back? Have your say in the comments section below...
