MORE ON OWENS AND ZAYN LEAVING WWE TOUR

As PWInsider.com broke this afternoon, WWE sent Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens were sent home from the Smackdown side of the WWE European tour.

Multiple sources have told PWInsider.com that the pair were sent home not for one reason but for several things that came up over the course of the tour. 

There was an issue on last night's TV taping where the duo allegedly "did what they wanted" during the close of the segment with New Day, as opposed to being physically run off by the team.   We are also told there was a situation where Owens was allegedly complaining  loudly on a tour bus after the taping, which one person decreed was "the last straw following a long few days of touring."   Another person who was on the bus cited that Owens was "just venting" and that it wasn't a major issue, but that the situation at TV may have exacerbated the situation, forcing WWE's hand. 

The pair returned to the United States today.

WWE has not responded for a request for comment on the situation.
