Sasha Banks and Naomi made huge headlines when they walked out during last night’s WWE Raw. There have been various sides to the story already reported, including that the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions confronted Vince McMahon himself over their issue. WWE left that part out of their official narrative, but Banks and Naomi did have words with the boss.
In the official statement from the company, it was noted that Sasha Banks and Naomi dropped their tag titles on the desk of John Laurinaitis and left the building. Dave Meltzer noted on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that there was much more to the story. The duo went to Vince McMahon himself to air their grievances.
Whatever was upsetting Sasha and Naomi was taken to Mr. McMahon. McMahon didn’t back down. When he didn’t agree with the ideas presented by the team, they decided to walk out.
“A lot of this is just speculative right now. They left. It’s not a work. As far as what happens next, they sent out a release and didn’t say anything. Didn’t indicate anything about what was going on other than, clearly, management was upset.
There was a situation, I do know that whatever it was, they went to Vince and Vince did not back down, which they did not put in the release. Vince did not agree to what they were asking and that led to them walking out during the show, which is kind of a no-no, but again, look, if the Kota Ibushi stuff can be smoothed over… I’ve seen a lot worse get smoothed over.”
Vince McMahon has shown a willingness to work with superstars he has disagreements with. Many never thought they would see Mustafa Ali return to work for WWE, but he is appearing regularly on Raw. Things could be worked out with Sasha Banks and Naomi, but the situation is still very fluid.
