Simon Gotch recently returned to the road for WWE after a reported backstage fight with Sin Cara.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Gotch and Sin Cara got into a fight prior to the roster draft edition of Smackdown, which also marked the first live broadcast of the weekly program.
Sources vary on what exactly happened; some say Sin Cara punched Gotch, while others say Sin Cara threw an unopened soda can that struck Gotch in the face. Either way, the end result was the same... with Gotch down and out after sustaining a blow that left him with a black eye.
Part of the Vaudevillains tag team with Aiden English, Gotch is rumored to have heat with some of the other wrestlers in the WWE locker room because of his mouth. Gotch and Sin Cara also are rumored to have had past disagreements, which no doubt fueled this latest incident.
While Gotch was pulled off the road for a few days after the fight, Sin Cara continued to work a normal schedule for WWE and there is no word that either man will be punished by the company.
This is not the first time Sin Cara has gotten into a fracas behind the scenes with another member of the roster. Two years ago, Sin Cara and Sheamus allegedly got into a fight in the trainers' room. According to Konnan, who recounted the incident on an episode of the MLW Radio podcast, Sin Cara got the better of that battle as well.
