Reports of backstage heat on Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been a popular topic of discussion among wrestling fans ever since both these stars were sent home from the recent WWE UK Tour.
Though the duo didn’t miss any TV time as they were brought back for the following SmackDown Live episode which left fans wondering about their status.
Dave Meltzer gave an update on the situation in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, saying that the heat is not there anymore for Owens though the story is different for Sami. Here is what he wrote:
“It appears that all the controversy regarding Owens from when he and Zayn were sent home is gone, but the same isn’t the case of Zayn”
Though Meltzer did not elaborate the issue further so it’s hard to say if Sami Zayn’s heat is due to the older incidents or he has done anything more since then to offend people backstage.
