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.
Raj Girl, founder of Wrestling Inc, initially broke the news on June 15. Raj claimed that he heard she had been released but was unsure if she requested it or if WWE took the action. In an update today, WrestleVotes had backed up Giri’s claim and verified the report. WrestleVotes stated that Sasha Banks has indeed been released from her WWE contract. Reports had emerged that noted her presence on the WWE’s internal roster as well and she was also not removed from WWE official site.
