Sin Cara and Simon Gotch of the tag-team The Vaudevillains got into a well-documented scrap at the SmackDown LIVE draft show.
New behind-the-scenes details about the altercation are emerging all the time, and according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, Sin Cara 'flipped out' and threw an unopened soda can right in Gotch's face, which caused his apparent black eye.
Meltzer went on to suggest that three different performers have reported that Gotch has some heat backstage within the WWE and his mouth has gotten him into more trouble than it should have.

Bearing in mind Gotch and his partner Aiden English have been on the main roster for a matter of months, he's not doing a very good job of endearing himself to the powers that be.
However, it seems as though he picked a fight with the wrong guy. Sin Cara is said to have a history of backstage fights in the WWE with Sheamus another victim of the Mexican high-flyer around two years ago.
According to former WCW wrestler Konnan on an episode of MLW Radio featuring Court Bauer in 2014, Cara downed a much larger foe in the Irishman.
Apparently, Sin Cara had a problem with Drew McIntyre, accusing him of shaking hands with the bigger and leading guys in the back, and not the others.
According to Konnan, a few days later in the trainer’s arena, Sheamus walked by Sin Cara, who was lying on a bed, and made a remark saying he was more important than him. He told him to get off, and that he needed to be attended to. After getting up and “calling him out,” Konnan said that Sheamus threw the first punch and then had his legs swept by Sin Cara, while getting punched seconds later.
Granted, none of these backstage brawls quite rival Chris Jericho Vs Goldberg or Booker T whooping Batista, but it's still quite interesting that these altercations can still happen within the WWE.
The fact that Sin Cara has had a few instances now and has seemingly not suffered much in the way of consequences is surprising. At this time of writing, neither he or Gotch have been suspended or fined as a result of their incident.
