Just days before the Elimination Chamber PPV, the second PPV of the year for WWE, Vince McMahon's promotion faced a major blow when one of their top Superstars was arrested.

Jimmy Uso, one-half of The Usos, was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice, following an altercation with the police in Detroit. Jimmy and his wife, SmackDown Superstar Naomi, was stopped by the police after Naomi drove the wrong way on a one-way street.

Jimmy then confronted the police which led to his arrest.

The Usos face off against the SmackDown tag team champions, Shane McMahon and The Miz, at Elimination Chamber.

There is the possibility that the WWE may remove The Usos from the match and replace them with another tag team from SmackDown. Here are 5 teams that could replace The Usos at Elimination Chamber after Jimmy Uso's arrest:

#5 Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura

Shinsuke Nakamura, Rusev, and Lana

The unlikely tag team of Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura could actually work! When WWE teamed the former United States Champions together, many were left wondering if the duo would work well as a team, following their previous feud for the United States Championship.

Both Superstars are supremely talented in the ring and could give the SmackDown tag team division a fresh lease of life.


Nakamura and Rusev do not have matches at Elimination Chamber, hence they could be available for a match against the SmackDown tag team champions.

The duo can put on great matches in the ring and perhaps a new feud could arise between the current SmackDown tag team champions, and Rusev and Nakamura.

We could see Rusev demanding Shane McMahon an opportunity backstage during the show, which McMahon will be forced to take up as that's "best for business".
