After taking a second loss to John Cena, the internet wrestling community was in an uproar because they viewed that as a burial of Kevin Owens. Some are now questioning if he has backstage heat on him. While he does have some people rooting against him back there, Owens is not in trouble with WWE. Being given a victory over Cena is something that management does not routinely hand out.

Since management believed it to be a freak accident, there is no backstage heat on Samoa Joe for the neck injury that Tyson Kidd suffered. Bret Hart, however, has a different opinion.
