Backstage News on Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn Getting Heat From Other Wrestlers

— While there has been conflicting reports on exactly what happened after the end of the Sami Zayn vs. Kofi Kingston match that caused Kevin Owens and Zayn to be sent home from the European tour, with some reports indicating that the two went into business for themselves while another suggested that it was just a big misunderstanding.

— Over the past couple of weeks, after both sides were reported, the word going around is that most of the wrestlers backstage were under the belief that Owens and Zayn were indeed serving their own interests and after they had left, the talk amongst the wrestlers definitely portrayed the two as the “bad guys” in the incident.

— Furthermore, this feeling is what may have ignited the recent Randy Orton / Kevin Owens twitter squabble where the two went back and forth before abruptly stopping. While WWE seems to use TWitter as a medium to develop or further storylines these days, this Twitter exchange seemed to have some legitimacy to it.
