Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out on RAW moments after the show went on air this Monday. This has now become one of the largest topics of discussion in pro wrestling. Many are against what the two of them did, but Mickie James is certainly not one of them.
As Ringside News exclusively reported, there is also a strong belief backstage that the Boss actually manipulated Naomi into leaving with her. The two have already suffered the consequences of their actions as well.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Mickie James shared her thoughts on Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out. James was supportive of them as she openly applauded their decision.
“Yeah, I actually applaud them standing in their convictions and how they felt. If they felt disrespected, or they felt unheard, or they felt any of those things. I mean, at the end of the day, we still are independent contractors. Like, that can be argued that they did show up to work that day. They saw whatever they were supposed to do and they had committed at least to half the day. So again, you are honestly only hearing only what they put out. Honestly, when I saw the statement, I was a bit in shock that WWE would even put out the statement. Because I couldn’t believe that Vince signed off on the statement.”
WWE won’t fire Sasha Banks and Naomi out of fear that they will go to AEW. Their walkout was also called a publicity stunt, among other things. Obviously, Mickie James feels a certain type of way about this situation, especially after that trash bag care package they sent her after that last release. We will keep you updated on this ongoing story!
