Kevin Owen sheds light on being kicked off a WWE Europe tour
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been friends since before stepping into WWE. The two have maintained their friendship for over twenty years. But this togetherness got them into trouble at times.
"Back in 2017, he [Sami Zayn] and I were so — in people’s minds, he and I were so, just one, that if he got heat backstage for something, I got the heat too. Even if I got nothing to do with it. We got kicked off a Europe tour once together for something that I will — I don’t think either of us really had anything to be blamed for. But, I was barely involved in it. ‘Get those guys out of here,’ "Kevin Owens said.
