After watching this weeks Smackdown, it is already clear to me that Sami is an awful Heel - he looks so uncomfortable when delivering the promos and he doesnt have any sort of connection with the audience - the only part of his promo that got any reaction this week was when he mentioned Kevin Owens

Hes not fantastic in the ring - i just find everything about him plain and underwhelming

For me the only way to get him over would be to do the NXT storyline again somehow with a full on Heel Owens beating him down when he wins a title and having that rivalry - again though i think it would be more heat for owens than babyface pop for Zayn

I enjoyed Sami's heel work this week, the hamming it up with the silly dancing and prancing around and his obnoxious promo style and attitude, all great heel tactics that aren't the traditional heat seeking tools but are still effective.

For me this is possibly the most entertaining Zayn has been on the main roster so far.

Quote PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were sent home from the Smackdown side of the ongoing WWE European tour following last night's taping in Manchester, England.

There are conflicting stories as to why this has happened floating around but multiple sources within WWE have confirmed the pair were sent back to the United States today.



Soooo where do we start guessing? Storyline reasons? Being drunk on tour? Something more sinister?

Best mates touring for a fortnight together seeing different cities every day. I can see how work might have got in the way of fun LOL

They wouldn't have weakened the roster for nothing, so expect it to be a serious matter when it comes out such as being unprofessionally wasted.

They are probably a bit annoyed at not having a prominent position on the Smackdown roster.

I’ve read a lot of reports that it’s for “Going into business for themselves” - what that means remains to be seen but a lot of so called sources are stating the promo they cut was their own and not what was scripted

They supposedly didn't follow the script at the end of the Zayn/Kofi match. They should have been ran off by New Day but they left before that happened.

Aye I seen that and apparently WWE are annoyed because Owens attacked and then left before new day had a chance to do anything - making him look the smart one out of it all when in reality a beat down to warn off Shield was supposed to be in there

To be honest I’m not sure (if they hadn’t been sent home) that anyone would have picked any of that up from SD - most of what I read was about New Day gaining momentum as a result of Kofis win

Agree there #H. Kofi picked up the win...a 3 on 2 run off wouldn't have made sense for them.

I've started getting most of my wrestling news from WrestleTalk on youtube. This is what they had to say:


It would make more sense that it was a combination of a lot of things, and that running away instead of feeding into New Day firing up would be the last straw.

Also a good shout to point out that the whole Neville things probably does stick in their craw a good bit.

By the sounds of it they were both a bit sore about their buddy Neville and decided to be quite vocal in their complaining on a tour bus and this was followed up with the going against the script on tv.

This isn’t going to do either man any favours. Owens is enjoying the push of his life and was close to cementing his status as a headliner. Zayn is also getting a better push and more tv time than he really has at any other time on the main roster.

I just hope this doesn’t result in them being buried on tv or worse released. Does seem that all the indie darlings in WWE at present are up in arms ever since the Neville walk out.
