– We noted before that Vince McMahon made the decision to send Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn home from the current WWE European tour following an incident at Tuesday’s SmackDown where it was alleged that the two went against a creative decision that had to do with Sami’s singles loss to Kofi Kingston. You can read our latest backstage update on the incident, which some are calling a miscommunication, at this link. PWInsider has confirmed that Sami and Owens will be back working for the company at Tuesday’s Survivor Series go-home edition of SmackDown from Charlotte, North Carolina. As noted, they are scheduled to face The New Day that night.
