Sasha Banks and Naomi shocked many people when they walked out in the middle of Monday Night RAW last week. What entailed after that was not something either of them expected, as the company made it clear they will never tolerate what Banks and Naomi did. In fact, the company isn’t even paying them during their suspension.
WWE has been merciless when it comes to doling out punishment to both of them. WWE indefinitely suspended both of them and that was just the beginning. The company actively buried them on live television.
They also removed Banks and Naomi from live events and stripped them of their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer revealed that WWE is not paying Sasha Banks and Naomi while they sit at home during their suspension.
The suspension is without pay. In addition, the company pulled all of their merchandise from its website, meaning they would not get any new merchandise revenue. There was merchandise for both women available at the live shows over the weekend because that stuff is prepared ahead of time.
It was also noted that WWE pulled their merchandise down from the online shop to “send a message.” We will have to see what happens as Naomi’s contract is running out soon, but it is unknow exactly how long Banks has left on her deal.
Sasha Banks and Naomi are still listed on the active WWE roster even now. However, their status with the company remains questionable now, especially with how WWE is handling the situation. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story!
