The former Women’s Tag Team champions reportedly walked out of the show due to problems with WWE’s creative direction for Sasha and Naomi. They felt as if they weren’t respected enough. Things haven’t cooled down yet. New reports revealed that there is no communication between both parties.
WWE cancelled Sasha Banks and Naomi’s travel plans
Reports have revealed that those in WWE haven’t heard much about the former champions communicating with the executives after their walkout. WWE had canceled Sasha and Naomi’s travel plans for upcoming events and shows. The decision was taken on the day of their suspension, which was announced by WWE commentator Michael Cole live on SmackDown.
Another update has been provided by Wrestling Observer Dave Meltzer that the suspension has been issued without any pay. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it is believed that Sasha and Naomi’s contracts will be frozen if WWE does not pay them during the suspension period.
Some people didn’t want to vacate the Women’s Tag Team titles
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported that some people didn’t want Sasha Banks and Naomi to get stripped off their tag titles. But, that decision was taken eventually. WWE announced that there would be a tag team tournament to determine new champions. But, the plan hasn’t been prioritized yet. Sasha Banks and Naomi won the Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 38 and held the titles until they walked out of RAW two weeks ago.
