WWE: the OFFICIAL STATEMENT on Sasha Banks and Naomi

"When Sasha Banks and Naomi arrived at the arena this afternoon, they were notified of their participation in tonight's Monday Night Raw main event. During the live broadcast, they walked into the office of WWE Talent Relations Director John Laurinaitis with their suitcases in hand, placing their champion belts on the desk and walking away.

The two said they were not respected enough as tag team champions. And despite having eight hours to try to build their match, they claimed to be uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents - even though they have had a few individual matches over the past few weeks, to no avail.

Monday Night Raw is a scripted TV show whose characters must perform their own performances as required by their contract. We regret that we were unable to offer tonight's main event as advertised." WWE wanted with these words tell what happened with Sasha Banks and Naomi.

What happened

Naomi and Sasha Banks left the arena where Monday Night Raw was about to take place, after having disagreements with the WWE management, regarding the main event of the evening, which featured a 6-way match between women, in which WWE was supposed to find the new challenger to the title for Bianca Belair.

After hearing the match booking, which saw Naomi win, Sasha Banks argued with John Laurinaitis that he had to ask Vince McMahon for help. The WWE boss has confirmed plans for the main event. Sasha Banks, angry, left the ring.

Both Sasha and Naomi preferred to leave their belts in the talent relations director's office, leaving the arena. In the end, the company had to opt for a different match, with Becky Lynch and Asuka facing each other in a 1 vs 1, to find Bianca Belair's new challenger, with Corey Graves who, however, wanted to let slip a comment. in which he defined the two athletes who had left the building completely unprofessional.
