Shocking reports emerged from the WWE on Wednesday when Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens were sent home early from the European tour.
Most fans thought something must have been up almost straight away. For one, both men are currently united and acting as heels on the SmackDown Live brand, and secondly, they are being kept on the outskirts of the show and aren't currently slated for Survivor Series.
However, it later emerged courtesy of well-respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer that the pair had indeed been sent home early, but details remained sketchy at that point.
Neither man has any plans heading into the Survivor Series pay-per-view, but many fans have speculated that they will end up costing the Blue Brand in some way.
On Tuesday in Manchester, both men complained to commissioner Shane McMahon about how they were cheated during their Survivor Series qualifying matches. Zayn would then lose a one-on-one match with Kofi Kingston of the New Day.
While it was speculated that both men were unhappy with their plans on the show, further reports indicated that Owens then acted unprofessionally on the tour bus afterward.
However, Meltzer cleared up those rumours, saying: "There's a lot of untrue info. For one, the story of Owens being mad on the tour bus after the tapings isn't accurate. He was not even on the bus after the tapings.
"The finish of the match was exactly as it was supposed to be. The post-match is a story that is being told different ways depending on how you hear it but that is the point of contention.
"But that is the thing, any other stories are not accurate as it pertains to them being sent home. None of this has to do with Neville, Jimmy Jacobs, etc."
Jacobs was fired for posting a selfie with the famous Bullet Club outside of Raw a few weeks ago while Neville has reportedly left the company due to creative differences, though he is yet to officially leave.
Asked whether Vince will bring the pair back into the fold next week, Meltzer found it hard to predict.
"It's all up to Vince. He's he guy who suspended Titus for 90 days for nothing. Trying to predict his reactions are a waste of time because they are often contradictory and make no sense. Neither is looking to leave."
