Shane McMahon announced that Chad Gable is off the Backlash show due to the “injury” he suffered at the hands of Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso on Smackdown. Shane claimed that Gable suffered an MCL injury that won’t require surgery, but will sideline him for two to four weeks.
Jimmy and Jey Uso targeted Gable's leg and the 2012 Olympian will now miss Backlash after sustaining a knee injury that will sideline him for two to four weeks.
The Usos came out of nowhere to become No. 1 contenders and were seen as heavy underdogs heading in, but Jimmy and Jey Uso stood toe-to-toe with Rollins and Reigns and the four men tore the house down with a highly entertaining match.
The rumor is that it all goes back to Heath Slater, and it also involves the Usos as well. It was that WWE had plans to turn Jimmy and Jey Uso heel at some point soon due to a top heel tag team being needed on SmackDown Live. With American Alpha the clear fan favorite babyface team, the Uso brothers fit in perfectly as heels to counter the former WWE NXT Tag Team Champions.
