Why Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn Were Kicked off WWE's European Tour

There have been various reports as the reasons that the decision was made including Sports Illustrated reporting that they were sent home "for conduct deemed detrimental to the WWE".

Pro Wrestling Sheet also reported multiple sources contacted them and commented on Owens and Zayn's behavior as of late, saying they both had been hard to work with lately. Zayn's shocking heel turn during KO's Hell in a Cell match win over Shane McMahon led to Zayn turning heel for the first time in WWE.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the match finish was done as planned, however, following the bout Owens and Zayn were supposed to take a beatdown by The New Day, but instead, they just left the ring and exited to the back. Several WWE fans have reacted to the news by taking to Twitter and they are not happy.

It would be very bad news for WWE if Zayn and Owens were truly on the outs with the company. Triple H worked RAW and SmackDown live events on the tour but The New Day and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle were added to the RAW side of the tour once Triple H went home this week. The report notes that both men have been "difficult to work with" of late and many have speculated it coincides with the absences of former Cruiserweight champion Neville and backstage agent Jimmy Jacobs, who they are both friends with.

Sami and Owens were told to leave the arena, go back to the hotel and fly home. Have YOUR say in the comments section below and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport's WWE podcast is here!
