Sasha Banks and Naomi walk out of Raw mid taping (Backstage drama Megathread)

    Nothing like some behind the scenes drama, is there. Last night on Raw, Sasha Banks and Naomi were to be involved in a six pack main event to determine the new number one contender for the women’s title. However, there was a last minute change after the two walked out. The match was to put the two against Nikki Ash, Doudrop, Auska and Becky.

    WWE issued the following statement….

    According to online people, this guy is close friends with Naomi, and seems to give their side of the story (though I’m not 100% on this….).

    the tldr on their side is they grew fed up with their creative direction as tag champs, and after a few bad meetings with directive, walked in protest.

    WWE statement is absolutely wild. Whatever side of the story is true, they’ve absolute savages the two women, especially with the bit about them not feeling safe with two of the other participants.

    Frightful Select:

    Those close to the situation said that Naomi and Sasha Banks didn't claim that they didn't want to work with Becky Lynch or Asuka, though that was implied in WWE's statement, and those were the two women referenced. Instead, we're told that Sasha Banks and Naomi were angling to work with Nikki ASH and Doudrop at the PPV. The talent themselves hadn't heard that Sasha and Naomi considered anyone "unsafe" until the statement was released. WWE talent also got the statement in their internal talent relations app.

    Hopefully they can smooth things over with Naomi but let Sasha sit at home because this is now a pattern with her. Vince didn’t take this from Austin and he’s not taking it from miss boo boo face herself.

    The universe won't be happy with this!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,106 ✭✭✭The White Wolf

    I'm surprised it took this long to fall apart, given Banks' dead behind the eyes demeanour since being put with Naomi.

    I imagine what will happen now is Naomi will end up back there while Sasha is done.

    Reading that the original plan was for Naomi to go over last night and face Bianca at I wonder who decided that they were being disrespected and floated the idea of walking out....🤔

    That statement reads as a total work

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,251 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    So Naomi will do what Bayley did and come back.

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,251 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    That doesn’t make sense because if Naomi was going over and would get a title match against one of the hottest stars in the company, then why would she take herself out of the main event ?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,152 ✭✭✭Ridley

    "So after one final meeting with yourselves and asking others, you make the ultimate decision as a team."

    Okay but Naomi has some degree of protection from being married into the Bloodline angle whether she's using it or not.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭Fattybojangles

    Fire the two of them and move on in Wrestling you do as you're told.

    I thought the same

    Why not just put Sonya, Lacey or Alexa in the match instead of the tag champs?

    I feel Naomi deserves another singles reign

    Sasha is pushing for a Trish Stratus match

  • Registered Users Posts: 28,661 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy

    Hard to respect them as champions when there's no real tag division. Who's the next thrown together team for them to face?

    And Becky and Asuka are dangerous? Pretty sure any of Sasha's injuries came from her being wreckless.

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,251 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    naomi does deserve another run. Let’s hope a Sasha banks and Trish match never happens ever.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,902 ✭✭✭✭titan18

    From one of the threads, it sounds like the plan was for Sasha to be fed to Bianca and Naomi to be fed to Ronda, and no plans for to defend their tag titles as a result. I can understand why they'd both be pissed off with that.

  • Registered Users Posts: 991 ✭✭✭NITRO95

    Good on Sasha & Naomi walking out. It sounds like this isn't an isolated incident and they have had issues with Vince/production staff a lot recently. The WWE statement makes me think something bad was said and they were trying to get out in front of it.

    Personally I'd love to see Sasha outside WWE and see what she is really capable of. She has a huge following and has the potential to be a difference making star. The fact that she is relegated to a bit part player for the likes of Charlotte, Ronda and Becky says it all about WWE

    WWE in a toxic relationship with it's employees shocker

    Didn't Toni Storm walk out of a show around Christmas and was never seen in WWE again? Worked out well for her so far

    I don't think it's a work. No way you'd put stuff like they rehearsed and constructed their match + WWE is a scripted show in a statement.

    Can't see either being released because of what happened though. Naomi is basically family with Roman and Sasha is one of their biggest stars in the womens division. Can't see them handing AEW someone like Sasha unless she moves into acting instead.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,565 ✭✭✭hynesie08

    Sasha in AEW would be hilarious, because if this is what she's like in WWE imagine how annoying she'd be in AEW, insider shoots about "Boo Boo Face", working her **** lucha libre against girls with 3 matches on dark, Honestly I'm here for it.

    Bianca BelAir is better than both of them.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,902 ✭✭✭✭titan18

    Banks should do an excursion in Japan with Stardom I think. She'd be huge there and it would give her the chance to actually wrestle the best women's wrestlers around. Sendai would also be interesting but the main draw there is wrestling Meiko Satomura and I can't imagine WWE allowing that when she's also in NXT UK.

    Can sasha not think abut poor snoop and the effect this will have on his wwe relationship

    Might be a work, might not be a work. Who can tell anymore.

    But if its real? They're marks for themselves. Both are earning good money and neither is getting jobbed out like some poor smuck.

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,036 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston

    Pair of fùcking marks. "We're not being made to look cool :'("

    If it is a work, it's so stupid. That "shoot" crap like saying "rehearsing" and "scripted" is so lazy.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,138 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus

    Looking at the wwe statement again, yeah it's real. Wwe would never say 'rehearse their match' in a story line fashion. In the realm of wrestling, wrestling is real.

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,036 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston

    Just thinking about it, is this the third summer in a row with Sasha drama?

  • Registered Users Posts: 59,983 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Fair play to them don't let the man walk all over you if your not happy and they won't let you quit do something to get them to fire you.

  • Registered Users Posts: 57 ✭✭TheLocalMan95

    HHH is really missed

    I wonder what Mr. Naomi Uso has to say although he is lucky to still be employed

    Shayna seems to be on their side
