The latest news to hit the wrestling world is Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn being sent home from the European Tour. The news stunned fans and has many wondering what is happening behind the scenes at WWE. A report by blog Cage Side Seats provided a lot of intriguing information about the situation.

The backstory

WWE is currently hosting its two-week European tour, where superstars from both brands have been wrestling for crowds in England, Italy, and Germany.

Everything seemed to be going well on the tour, but yesterday news broke that Owens and Zayn were removed from the remainder of the trip. Speculation immediately began with wrestling fans. Many were wondering if the men were injured, sick, or if there was another emergency.

Shortly after news broke about Owens and Zayn, reports surfaced that the two may be in trouble with WWE officials. The issue stems from Tuesday’s episode of "SmackDown Live," in which the two men supposedly went off script. Zayn was placed in a match with New Day member Kofi Kingston. At the end of the match, Zayn and Owens were supposed to beat up Kingston before being ambushed by the rest of the New Day members. Instead, Zayn and Owens left the ring, leaving both fans and The New Day bewildered.

The incident didn’t go over well with officials, who immediately sent the two home.

But that wasn’t the end of the situation. Rumors also surfaced that the two wrestlers are difficult to work with and they’ve been unhappy for a while.

Kevin & Sami's future

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been friends for many years. Their friendship developed back during their indie wrestling days and remained strong once they signed with WWE. The two were often portrayed as rivals in WWE storylines yet in recent weeks a new storyline as the "Smackdown" stars reigniting their friendship.

Their new partnership has them pitted against "Smackdown" commissioner Shane McMahon. Owens and Zayn’s heel characters have become so popular that many feel they’ll play a role in the upcoming "Smackdown" vs "RAW" match at Survivor Series. Now, the PPV along with their careers are in question due to the latest situation.

The news of Owens and Zayn being unhappy isn’t a surprise to fans, who have seen firsthand how badly the wrestlers have been booked. WWE has a history of taking popular wrestlers and putting them in awful storylines. Recently, a lot of wrestlers have been frustrated with their creative direction, thus leading them to exit the company.

Will Owens and Zayn be the next wrestlers to leave WWE? What does this latest news mean for Survivor Series? Will "Smackdown" survive without Owens and Zayn in the picture?
