Plans for the October 13th episode of SmackDown include a major reveal related to Jey Uso.
For most of his career, Jey Uso was linked with his brother Jimmy and seemed destined for a future in tag team wrestling.
However, since leaving The Bloodline, Jey has stepped out on his own. After quitting SmackDown back in August, the star joined the red brand as revealed by Cody Rhodes at Payback. It was later clarified that Uso’s move to Raw would involve another talent being traded to SmackDown, though the talent in question has yet to be revealed.
Fightful Select reported that the trade is set to be revealed on the October 13th episode of SmackDown in Tulsa, OK. The report clarifies that the trade will involve a main roster talent and not someone from NXT. The report also noted that the trade was not planned to be Cody Rhodes as many had speculated.
Later, PWInsider revealed that Kevin Owens is planned to be on SmackDown. The expectation is that he will announce he has been traded to the blue brand.
Jey Uso Is Once Again An Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion
WWE Fastlane on October 7th saw Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes team up to take on Finn Balor and Damian Priest for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. In a result that was shocking to many, Rhodes and Uso were victorious, unseating the Judgment Day members as champions.
Because the tag team champions can appear on both brands, Uso will be able to appear on SmackDown despite having been traded to Raw.
The October 13th episode of SmackDown is also set to feature a major on-screen debut. Spoilers can be found here.
