Wrestling World Reacts To Sasha Banks & Naomi’s Raw Walkout

Following the stunning news that Sasha Banks and Naomi both walked out of Raw, the wrestling world has been quick to react.

On Monday night it was reported by PWInsider that the main event of Monday Night Raw had to be changed when Sasha Banks and Naomi left the arena ahead of the show due to Banks’ frustration over creative plans. The match in question was meant to be a six-pack challenge to determine the next contender for Bianca Belair’s Raw Women’s Championship and was set to feature Sasha Banks, Naomi, Becky Lynch, Nikki ASH, Doudrop, and the recently-returned Asuka.

According to the report, Banks met with Vince McMahon to express her creative concerns, but the WWE Chairman refused to change plans and she made the decision to walk out instead of participating in the match. Her tag team partner Naomi went with her, leading to a segment on the show where Becky Lynch confronted Adam Pearce and the main event was changed to Becky Lynch vs. Asuka, which Asuka eventually won.

WWE took the unusual step of releasing a statement confirming that Sasha Banks and Naomi had indeed walked out after handing their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship belts to Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis.

The wrestling world has been quick to react to the news with many stars from all corners have taken to social media with their own takes on the situation.
