Top WWE Star Details Getting Backstage Heat For ‘Nothing They Did’ WWE

The storied history of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn has taken place over the past 20 years of their professional wrestling careers.

The story has now intertwined with the story between Sami Zayn and the Bloodline, with Owens telling Zayn that he was ‘done’ with him after Sami alligned with the Bloodline in WarGames.

Speaking on WWE After the Bell, Owens discussed the promo, and how he and Sami have been connected in people’s minds even when they’re not together.

He even went on to detail a time he had backstage heat in the company due to something he had nothing to do with.

He said:

“At this point, on Monday, what I said came from the heart. We’ve done this for a long time, we’ve really helped each other throughout our careers a lot, but we’ve probably held each other back as well, just because of the constant pairing in people’s minds. Even when we’re not together.

“I’ll tell you this, back in 2017, in people’s minds, he and I were so one that if he got heat backstage for something, I’d get the heat too. Even if I had nothing to do with it. We got kicked off a Europe tour once, together, for something that…I don’t think either of us had anything to be blamed for, but I was barely involved. It was just, ‘get those guys out of here.’ It wasn’t just, ‘Get one of them. Both of them.’ Literally, that aspect of what I said on Monday stands.

“It’s just time to be done. He’s thriving. I meant that on Monday too. People are seeing the Sami Zayn that I’ve known was there for 20 years. I don’t know why it took people so long to take notice and get the credit he deserves because he’s been incredible in WWE the whole time, but the last few months have obviously opened people’s eyes and it’s great, but I don’t think it’s optimal for our careers to be parallel anymore.”

Sami is thriving as a member of the Bloodline, finally making friends with Jey Uso after months of hostility between the two.

Despite the angle from this week’s show, WWE is reportedly still planning on Owens and Zayn teaming up against the Usos at WrestleMania next year.
