WrestleMania 36 wasn’t quite the same as a normal WrestleMania, thanks to the lack of a big venue and accompanying live crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean the WWE Superstars didn’t give it their all. They put their bodies on the line for our entertainment like they always do, whether it was Jimmy Uso in a ladder match against John Morrison and Kofi Kingston, or Kevin Owens executing the biggest spot of the weekend in his match with Seth Rollins. Since then, reports have come out that Uso and Owens are both injured, although there’s a big difference in severity and how long they’re expected to be out of action.
Kevin Owens tweaked his ankle in his match with Seth Rollins, but according to Dave Meltzer at the Wrestling Observer, he’s only expected to be out for a couple more weeks. Hopefully on his return he’ll be able to keep building on the babyface momentum he’s been building these past few months.
Jimmy Uso, on the other hand, suffered a pretty serious knee injury in that aforementioned ladder match, and he’s expected to be out of action for six to nine months. Meltzer also says that the Usos being unable to work has altered the booking of the Smackdown tag team division, with the Forgotten Sons getting called up to fill a hole in the multi-team match being planned for the Money in the Bank PPV. It’s a shame he’s going to be out so long, because the tag division just isn’t the same without him and Jey.
