What’s the story?

As noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a couple of new developments have emerged pertaining to the incident that saw WWE send Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn home.

Apparently, Owens seems to be on good terms with WWE brass, following the incident which saw him and Zayn being sent home by the WWE; but the latter’s situation is still quite volatile.

In case you didn’t know…

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn initially rose to prominence in the professional wrestling business, owing to their work on the indie circuit and ROH (Ring Of Honor) in particular.

Fast-forward to the present day, and the two childhood friends compete for the WWE’s SmackDown brand.

The heart of the matter

It was just a few days back that rumors suggested Owens and Zayn were ‘sent home’ by the WWE from their European tour due to the duo allegedly going against management directive opposite The New Day in a segment on SmackDown Live.

Nevertheless, it’s now being reported that the controversy as regards Owens seems to have cooled down; and the WWE higher-ups don’t find any issue with KO right now.

However, it was noted that the same can’t be said of Zayn; and the Underdog from the Underground may still be facing heat from WWE management; following the entire fiasco that saw him and KO being sent home.

What’s next?

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn currently perform for the WWE’s SmackDown brand. Whether or not the WWE higher-ups’ displeasure with Zayn affects his WWE status, will unravel over the next few days.

Author’s take

Sami Zayn may very well be one of the most talented in-ring performers in the sport today.


Besides, Kevin Owens isn’t too far behind his friend either; and it’d be nice to see their backstage heat go away soon.

However, take this report with a grain of salt.
