The Usos will defend their Tag Team Titles on SmackDown next week, but as seen this week, Roman Reigns hasn’t heard from Jey since the Royal Rumble, and his brother Jimmy says he hasn’t either.

There’s a chance we won’t hear from Jey until after the Elimination Chamber show on February 18th.

Due to their DUI history, it is believed that Jimmy would be unable to travel to Montreal, Canada, which means that if Roman Reigns needs a backup, the only person who can accompany him (aside from Paul Heyman) is Solo Sikoa. A few months ago, Jey made an appearance on a show in Winnipeg without Jimmy.

DUIs are treated much more seriously in Canada than in the United States. The plan is for Jimmy and Jey to defend their titles at WrestleMania and they can begin working on that match after the Elimination Chamber.

The Usos are set to defend their titles against Braun Strowman and Ricochet next week, and Jimmy believes his brother will be there.

The Elimination Chamber main event was announced this week on SmackDown. Roman Reigns will defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Sami Zayn. Click here for the updated line-up.
