WWE Women’s tag team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi have seemingly walked out of WWE after having creative differences on Raw last night.
The pair both left Raw abruptly last night despite being advertised to be in the main event.
Last night’s main event was due to see Sasha Banks vs Naomi vs Becky Lynch vs Doudrop vs Nikki Cross vs Asuka to determine a new number one contender for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Several reports have suggested that Banks & Naomi felt that two of the women were unsafe in the ring and didn’t want to compete in the match.
WWE have also released the following statement:
When Sasha Banks and Naomi arrived at the arena this afternoon, they were informed of their participation in the main event of tonight’s Monday Night Raw.
During the broadcast, they walked into WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis’ office with their suitcases in hand, placed their tag team championship belts on his desk and walked out.
They claimed they weren’t respected enough as tag team champions. And even though they had eight hours to rehearse and construct their match, they claimed they were uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents – even though they’d had matches with those individuals in the past with no consequence.
Monday Night Raw is a scripted live TV show, whose characters are expected to perform the requirements of their contract.
We regret we were unable to deliver, as advertised, tonight’s main event.
