UPDATE: Now we know why they were sent home. Click here for an update on what happened at Smackdown with Zayn and Owens.
ORIGINAL: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were sent home after Tuesday night’s Smackdown show in Manchester. The news was first reported by the Wrestling Soup podcast. We checked with a WWE source and they confirmed the story to us. The rumor going around is that they were sent home because of unprofessional behavior but no one in WWE has confirmed that to us.
Clearly, something significant must have taken place for WWE to make the decision to send them home. I find it interesting that Zayn and Owens are not on the Survivor Series card. It’s been a strange month since the illness that affected some of the roster, the recent changes to the Survivor Series card, Jinder Mahal dropping the WWE title, John Cena being added to the PPV, and other things.

We will pass along updates on Zayn and Owens once we get them.
