Report: "Zero Sympathy" In WWE For Sasha Banks
No sympathy for Sasha Banks amongst WWE talent
Sasha Banks' fellow WWE talents seemingly aren't on The Boss' side after she and Naomi walked out of Monday's episode of Raw.
The Women's Tag Team Champions were reportedly unhappy about the night's creative plans and following a meeting with Vince McMahon about that and a contract issue, the pair handed the Women's Tag Team Title belts to John Laurinaitis and left the building.
The crux of the issue was ultimately WWE's plans for the Women's Tag Team Championships, with Naomi scheduled to face and lose to Bianca Belair in a Raw Women's Title match at Hell In A Cell. Sasha Banks, meanwhile, was booked to lose to SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rousey, leaving the tag belts very much in limbo.
While some would have thought there would be support for Banks within WWE, Bryan Alvarez reported on Wrestling Observer Live there was "zero sympathy" for The Blueprint and people he has spoken to called her a "Mark" and a 'diva."
"Internally, [I'm sure] Jimmy Uso is sticking up for Naomi and everything like that. Sure, somebody internally is gonna do whatever. But, I have not heard from one person. Not one that is sticking up for Sasha and Naomi. And not only are they not sticking up for Sasha and Naomi but boy have I heard a lot of terms thrown around. Most of them are some derivative of the word 'Mark.' Mark, F'N Mark, a Mark to a degree that is unfathomable. I have heard zero support for Sasha Banks in this situation. So, quite frankly you can get mad at me if you want...I've been a lot nicer on this show than anything I've heard from people in WWE over the last 24 hours. Hey, if you want to come after me then go for it...Zero support, I'm talking zero," Alvarez began.
"It's funny [because] I haven't heard anyone say anything about Naomi and she walked out too. It's all about Sasha. I've heard it all - Mark, Diva, the list goes on and on. There is zero support for Sasha Banks walking out of WWE over all of this. People are furious. They think it's ridiculous. They think that she's whatever," he continued.
"So, that's the story. Where this goes, I don't know but literally, every single bit of support that I've seen for Sasha Banks coming out of this has either been from people in another company that weren't there last night and that's it...or fans. Her actual co-workers have zero sympathy for what happened here. I think that should probably tell you something. Again, we largely have the official WWE side of the story but I also heard from a lot of people obviously off the record in WWE and they are not sympathetic to this at all. These are people who have been presented with really stupid ideas and they've had to do them. They are not sympathetic on this one. I think that kind of tells you that she didn't like some creative but the other wrestlers probably looked at that creative and thought 'dude what are you complaining about? Both of you are gonna be headlining a pay-per-view in singles championship matches. This is your job...'"
As it stands, Naomi and Sasha Banks are still with WWE and are the reigning WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.
