Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn Sent Home From WWE European Tour
It’s being reported that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were sent home from the current WWE European Tour today. There’s no word on why the two left the tour or why WWE took them off of the tour at this time. There’s also no word on who will replace the two SmackDown Live stars on the blue brand’s leg of the tour. Apparently, the two were removed from the tour after last night’s SmackDown Live and returned to the US.
There are conflicting stories as to why the two were sent back to the States, with one source stating it was due unprofessional behavior on the part of the two wrestlers. A report from Sports Illustrated is claiming that they were sent home from the tour due to “conduct deemed detrimental to WWE”, basically going off script and going into business for themselves during their on-air promo segment during last night’s SmackDown Live.
I just rewatched the segment, and I didn’t see anything all that bad. Maybe Sami Zayn’s “goose-stepping” caused issues? The “Men Of Honor” quote? “Daddy Issues?” Mocking Vince McMahon’s “Fired” line in a weird voice? I guess you can be a bad guy in WWE…but only if you follow the micromanaged script word-for-word.
Watch and judge for yourselves.
We will keep everyone updated on this situation as more information becomes available.
Jinder Mahal Addresses WWE Title Loss
As we saw on last night’s SmackDown Live, Jinder Mahal dropped the WWE World Title to AJ Styles. There had been rumors and speculation surfacing over the past week that Mahal may have been injured or even failed a Wellness Policy drug test due to the suddenness of the match.
Mahal took to his Instagram page today to address the title loss and the rumors.
“To @ajstylesp1, you were the better man for one night. Six months I held the #WWEChamoionship, defended it countless times, all over the world. I will one day raise the title again. To my haters and wrestling “insiders”, this was NOT an experiment, I am NOT injured, I have NOT violated the wellness policy. So keep throwing shade my way, it only motivates me.”
