A new report has claimed that Sasha Banks has “zero” sympathy backstage from fellow Superstars following her decision to walk out of Monday Night Raw.
Sasha Banks is currently the talk of the wrestling world and she walked out of Monday Night Raw mid-show with tag team partner Naomi.
The pair had been due to compete in a six-pack challenge in the main event to determine a new number one contender for the Raw Women’s Championship. However, after reportedly being dissatisfied with creative, the pair left the arena.
While the show was in progress, WWE released a statement claiming that the pair weren’t comfortable in the ring with two of their opponents, and felt their Women’s Tag Team Titles were being disrespected. Meanwhile, Corey Graves slammed the pair as “unprofessional” on commentary.
In the aftermath of the incident, Wade Keller reported that the Women’s Tag Team Champions had little support backstage, with the prevailing mood being more confusion than anything else.
Although the pair have been supported on social media by fans and stars from other companies, along with Bayley who is still out injured, it appears that within WWE things are very different.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez notes that contrary to the expectation from many fans, Banks’ colleagues have little sympathy with the star. Alvarez explained that The Boss has been referred to as a “Diva” among other things, and has “zero support” and “zero sympathy” from co-workers.
“I have heard zero support for Sasha Banks in this situation. So, quite frankly if you want 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. 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. 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.”
With the six-pack challenge having to be hastily dropped, in storyline Becky Lynch pleaded with WWE official Adam Pearce to get the match changed to a singles bout. Lynch got her way but was pinned by Asuka as the show went off the air.
