Sasha Banks might have been released
Now, FightfulSelect.com has noted that Sean Ross Sapp spoke with Giri recently. The outlet noted that they reached out to numerous WWE reps.
“One of which got back to us and stated “Not that I’ve heard” in regards to the release. They confirmed later that they saw Giri’s tweet, but didn’t comment beyond that. Thus far, nobody in WWE has explicitly shot it down, they’ve just said they haven’t heard about it. This is as it pertains to talent, front office, public relations, and staff. If Sasha Banks has been released, the company has kept it very quiet. Contacts close to talent relations were unaware of a release as of 8 PM EST.
Fightful also noted that they exhausted a number of resources and they weren’t able to find anyone who could confirm or deny the release had happened.
Sasha Banks remains on the roster page of WWE.com, and there haven’t been any internal memos sent out to staff (as of 1 AM EST, June 16) to remove her from shop, roster or other pages. There was an “urgent” email sent earlier this week to a live event venue to remove her from advertising as she was no longer a part of the event. We’ve also not heard of any talent relations memos being sent to talent, who are often notified of releases.
Sasha Banks and Naomi had walked out of Monday Night RAW due to creative differences. There have been various sides to the story already reported, including that the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions confronted WWE Chairman Vince McMahon over their issue. WWE left that part out of their official narrative, but Banks and Naomi did have words with the boss. In the official statement from the company, it was noted that Sasha Banks and Naomi dropped their tag titles on the desk of John Laurinaitis and left the building.
No confirm news have been reported regarding the matter. We will keep you updated when more details are released.
