Backstage News On WWE Talents Being Upset With Kevin Owens 038 Sami Zayn For Going Into Business For Themselves

– As previously reported, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were sent home from the WWE European tour after last week’s Smackdown in Manchester, England, after it was reported that they went against a creative decision and “went into business for themselves” after Zayn’s loss to Kofi Kingston. The two returned on Tuesdays Smackdown.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the plan after the Zayn vs, Kingston match was for Owens to attack Kofi after his win, leading to Big E and Xavier Woods making the save to beat up Sami & Owens. The plan was for Owens and Sami to then run off, leading to the tag match that took place this week. Owens and Zayn didnt stick around for the beat down, and were reportedly yelled at backstage by WWE officials and sent home.

Another story stated that the entire incident was a big misunderstanding and that Owens and Zayn did what they thought they were supposed to do.

The WON also notes that the recent Twitter beef was more legit than most thought, as a lot of the Smackdown talents being upset with Owens and Zayn.
