According to various media reports, Sasha Banks and Naomi Walked out from Monday night RAW problems were with the storyline plan instead of their adversaries as they were suggested.
As per Fightful Select and PWInsider, Banks had a meeting with the boss Vince McMahon to discuss issues she faced with creative ideas and creative ideas, but neither side backs on their plans.
Banks and Naomi have yet to address the issue publicly However, it’s been reported that they left in the same building.
The real-life situation was discussed on the air, both on the commentary as well as backstage.
On the last night’s broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Norfolk, Virginia, a Six-Pack Challenge was announced to determine the top contenders for the title.
The plan was swiftly altered and there were rumors of Sasha Banks and Naomi had problems with their ideas for the tournament and had expressed complaints with Vince McMahon.
It was reported by PW Insider that when the WWE boss refused to alter the way the match was scheduled, Sasha Banks walked out and Naomi was next to her.
The plans changed quickly on the night, with a brand new main event scheduled with Becky Lynch and Asuka, and then, after the event was over, the WWE issued a bizarre statement on the issue.
“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,” the statement read.
“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.”
It went on to say: “They claimed they weren’t valued enough as the tag team’s champions.
“And even having eight hours to practice and build their match, they said they felt uncomfortable together with their two adversaries although they’ve played against them previously without result.
“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.”
This statement is causing confusion among fans through the use of the names of the talent’s rings and not calling them Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado and Trinity Fatu – yet also speaking out about rehearsing and building’ matches and recognizing Raw as a “scripted” TV show.
Furthermore, the statement is in sharp contrast to recent similar instances, such as the resignation of CM Punk, which was not at first accepted by the company, and Mustafa’s unsuccessful efforts to get his release.
Although there was discussion about Naomi being pinned by her tag teammate Sasha Banks during the match, Fightful has claimed that the original idea for the main event of yesterday was to see Naomi wrestle Nikki ASH.
The pair are believed to have resisted the suggestion in WWE’s announcement that they were not interested to collaborate together with Becky Lynch or Asuka, however, they do want to join forces alongside Nikki ASH and Doudrop at the coming WWE Hell In a Cell pay-per-view.
Sasha Banks and Naomi are believed to have been concerned which was shared by a lot of fans, regarding the direction taken by their tag team as well as their Tag team for women. source
