Earlier this week, WWE fans received the shocking news that SmackDown Live superstars Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn had been sent home by the company from their European tour.
Both men had worked on the SmackDown show this week, as they were part of a segment with Shane McMahon and The New Day, with The Underdog from the Underground having a match with New Day's Kofi Kingston.
The WWE announced the following day that they had made the surprising decision to send the two Canadians home, but they didn't offer an explanation as to why. As the week has gone on though, this information has been revealed.
Initially, it was believed Owens and Zayn were sent home for not following the script on SmackDown that week, were supposed to “feed” for New Day following Zayn vs Kingston, in order to make them look strong for their speculated match against The Shield at Survivor Series. Instead, they just left the ring.
However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer 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."
Another story emerged of The Prizefighter expressing his discontent on the tour bus after the show, but as you can see above, Meltzer has denied this taking place.
All of this lead to the outlandish speculation that Zayn and Owens could be done with the WWE, with the reports pointing towards how WWE dealt with Neville and Jimmy Jacobs, who the two are friends with. However, they're not going to be going anywhere, according to PWInsider.
PWInsider has reported that after being sent home from the currently ongoing European Tour, Owens and Zayn are scheduled to be at this Tuesday's SmackDown Live taping in Charlotte, North Carlonia, where they are expected to take on The New Day.
Initially, Meltzer didn't know how long Owens and Zayn could be out of action before, citing Titus O'Neil's 90-day suspension for pulling Vince McMahon's arm joking and essentially doing nothing meaning we can't pinpoint exactly how WWE will punish the two superstars.
If PWInsider's report is to be believed though, both The Prizefighter and The Underdog from the Underground will be back on our screens next week for the go-home SmackDown Live show before Survivor Series.
