Naomi and Sasha Banks both walked out of RAW during the opening portion of the live show in May. Since then, neither of them have been back, but there’s a belief that Naomi will be back.
Although Sasha Banks is a free agent, there has been no word about Naomi’s status. With NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 event coming up in a matter of hours, the rumor mill is still churning.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez spoke about Sasha Banks’ current situation with WWE. Naomi and Bayley are both going to be at the Tokyo Dome to support Banks as well. This is very interesting, especially considering the fact that there is reason to believe that Naomi will be back.
“They’re not going to New Japan, Naomi, and Bayley. Of course, there is no official information on Naomi, but my impression is she will be returning to WWE. Actually, you can report that my belief is that she will be returning to WWE because she will certainly be returning to WWE. I will just say that. Other than that, I don’t know what is going on.”
We will have to see what happens in this situation. Obviously, Naomi and Sasha Bans ruffled a lot of feathers with their walkout, and now The Boss is a free agent. With the Royal Rumble going down on January 28th, it’s anyone’s guess whether Naomi will be a surprise name during the big over-the-top-rope match.
