Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out during the early part of RAW this week, because they had a problem with the company’s creative direction. At this point, it seems that most of the heat is on Sasha Banks, and for good reason.
Ringside News asked around about this situation and we were told that the heat is certainly on Sasha Banks. A tenured member of the creative team confirmed to us that “Naomi is very popular.”
We were additionally told that, “many people feel Naomi was manipulated by Sasha into walking out.” This is a big reason why we’ve heard about Sasha Banks taking a majority of the blame for this situation while Naomi’s name hasn’t been dragged much at all.
It was still very unprofessional to walk out during RAW this week. Vince McMahon was unaware that they left until the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions were already out of the building. This caused WWE to change around their main event match and switch their booking direction for Hell in a Cell, because Naomi was supposed to win that six-pack challenge match and get a RAW Women’s Title shot on June 5th.
We will continue monitoring this story here at Ringside News. There is obviously a lot more to come out as all parties involved figure out their next steps.
