Sasha Banks and Naomi waked out of the building during RAW this week. They took issue with their future booking, so the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions handed their titles to Johnny Ace and left. Now their actions are a very popular point of conversation within the company.
We exclusively reported that there is a belief within WWE that Banks manipulated Naomi into leaving with her. That being said, there is a ton of heat on The Boss and not so much on Naomi, who is sadly lumped into this situation.
Ringside News was told by a tenured member of the creative team that, “Sasha is not well liked” backstage in WWE. At this point she has also, “alienated everyone backstage.” On the other hand, we were told that Naomi is “well liked.”
This is not the first time Sasha Banks walked out of WWE. She famously asked Vince McMahon for her release a couple of years ago, but he sent her home for several months instead. Now it seems we are in another situation where Sasha Banks is causing drama with her backstage behavior.
It was reported by Brad Shepard that Banks and Naomi have been pulled off WWE live events through July. We will have to see how this situation pans out, but it wouldn’t be a bit surprising for even more details to emerge as time goes on.
