High-ranking WWE officials are "legitimately p*ssed off" with Jimmy Uso following the SmackDown wrestler's latest arrest, reports WrestleVotes.

WrestleVotes consulted with two sources on the matter. Per the report, several "high level people in power" are angry at the situation, saying that Uso's latest arrest cannot be put down to a mistake or bad luck, but poor personal judgment.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that Uso had been pulled over, given sobriety tests, and arrested after doing 50 MPH in a 35 MPH zone in Pensacola, Florida, on Monday evening. The 35-year-old was taken into custody when his blood alcohol content levels came back at .202 and .205, both of which are well above Florida's .08 limit.


This was Uso's third alcohol-related arrest since 2019. Taken in for a drunken confrontation with police officers in Detroit that February, he then faced DUI charges (for which he was ultimately found not guilty) following an incident that took place that July.

The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer tweeted after the news broke, stating that at the time of writing, there had been no internal fallout in WWE, with the company set to make a decision on the matter "soon."


WWE has not yet issued a statement on Uso's latest DUI.
