The saga of Sasha Banks and Naomi in WWE has taken yet another twist with the latest report seemingly contradicting one huge issue previously thought solved.
Sasha Banks has been absent from WWE since she and Naomi walked out of an episode of WWE Raw, reportedly handing their Tag Team Championship belts to John Laurinaitis. Since then, there has been considerable uncertainty concerning the status of the 6-time Women’s Champion.
On June 16th, Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc. reported that The Boss was released from her WWE contract, while later updates suggested that Banks had a legal team working on her behalf to ensure her release.
WrestleVotes then weighed in on the situation, reporting that the word from SmackDown in Minneapolis was that the initial report of Banks being released was true.
Now Mike Johnson of PWInsider has seemingly scotched that rumour with a new report that states both Naomi and Sasha Banks are still listed on the active WWE roster within the company.
The report emphatically states that neither Sasha Banks nor Naomi have been officially released by WWE.
It was thought former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi’s contract with the company had around two months left to run when she walked out so she could be a free agent soon depending on whether or not WWE chooses to freeze her deal for her time missed.
