Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of WWE RAW last week. The sudden departure prompted WWE to take immediate action the two superstars, including issuing an indefinite suspension order and removing their mentions completely from the company’s profile.
According to Fightful Select, the former Women’s Tag Team Champions walked out of RAW during the opening moments of the show. WWE booked the segment between former RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Adam Pearce on the fly after learning about the incident.
The company was able to pull their merchandise and yank down Facebook pages. Twitter is a different story, because those accounts are controlled by The Boss and The Glow.
Twitter accounts are created, owned and managed (usually) by the performer themselves, and WWE does not have control over them. In regards to Shop, we’re told this was a part of the “indefinite suspension,” and WWE reiterated to us it does not indicate a release of any sort.
Sasha and Naomi are still listed on WWE’s active roster list. Ringside News exclusively reported that Banks alienated everyone backstage. There is also a belief that Naomi was manipulated into walking out with her. At least we know that Banks and Naomi can always tweet whenever they want to.
