Report: Sasha Banks, Naomi Walk Out On WWE Raw

Changes had to be made to Raw

Women's Tag Team champions Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of WWE Raw, according to a report from Fightful Select.

According to individuals at the Raw taping, Banks reportedly "wasn't satisfied" with the creative plans for her. Banks was supposed to be involved in a six-pack challenge with Becky Lynch, Naomi, Asuka, Doudrop, and Nikki ASH. During Raw, it was then announced that Asuka would instead face Lynch, and that Banks and Naomi, "... left the building."

Fightful's report claims that Banks had a meeting with Vince McMahon where she voiced her displeasure, and, " ... wouldn't budge on her stance." McMahon, for his part, also apparently held his ground on the matter.

The report adds, "We haven't specifically heard that Naomi was involved, but that she and Sasha Banks left near the start of the show."

Fightful issued a follow-up report, claiming that Naomi was apparently supposed to win the aforementioned six-pack challenge.

Banks and Naomi have reigned as WWE Women's Tag Team champions since defeating Carmella and Queen Zelina on April 3, the second night of WrestleMania 38 in Dallas.
