Sasha Banks and Naomi are getting bad press of late. The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions walked out on RAW moments after the show went on air last night. Their abrupt exit forced WWE to nix the planned main even match and replace it with Asuka versus Becky Lynch. Now they’re not getting a ton of support within the company either.
Bryan Alvarez noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Live that people within the WWE are not sticking up for Sasha and Naomi after the tag team champions walked out on the company due to alleged differences with WWE’s creative team. There are a few names being thrown around about them and “f*cking marks” is one of them; the term “diva” is another word being used to describe the two protesting WWE Superstars.
“I’ve not heard from one person, not one, that is sticking up for Sasha and Naomi. And not only are they not sticking up for Sasha and Naomi, but boy have I heard a lot of terms thrown around. Most of them, some derivative of the word ‘mark.’ ‘f’ing mark,’ a mark to a degree that is unfathomable. I mean, all of it.
“Like I said it’s funny. I haven’t heard anyone say anything about Naomi and she walked out too. It’s all about Sasha. I’ve heard it all – ‘mark.’ ‘diva’ – the list goes on and on. There’s zero support for Sasha Banks for walking out of WWE over all of this. People are furious, they think it’s ridiculous… So that’s the story.”
FTR’s Dax Harwood is one of the few people who have expressed their support for Sasha Banks. FTR famously left WWE because they believe the company doesn’t take tag team wrestling seriously. Interestingly enough, Vince Russo seems to be in The Boss and The Glow’s corner, so there’s always that.
We’ll have to wait and see what’s next for Sasha and Naomi, but we can’t wait to bring it to you right here at Ringside News.
