WWE Edit Out Pro-Sasha Banks Sign From SmackDown Photos

Sasha Banks

WWE have edited out a pro-Sasha Banks sign from their official Friday Night SmackDown Photos.

On the June 17th edition of Friday Night SmackDown, Raquel Rodriguez took on Shayna Baszler in Money In The Bank qualifying match.

After a keenly fought encounter, Rodriguez picked up the win to continue her fine run of form since moving the main roster. With the victory, the former NXT Women’s Champion joins Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan and Lacey Evans in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match.

However, one of the biggest things to come out of the match, actually had nothing to do with either Rodriguez or Baszler. As Rodriguez celebrated, she did so in front of a sign which read “Sasha Krew 4 Life.” A clear message of support for Sasha Banks who has been absent from WWE since May 16th.

Interestingly, in WWE’s official photos of the show on their website, the sign has been blurred out so it appears to be blank.

Sasha Banks and Naomi, had been scheduled to take part in a six-pack challenge on the May 16th edition of Raw to crown a new number one contender for the Raw Women’s Championship. However, following a disagreement over creative, Banks and Naomi turned in their WWE Women’s Tag Team Title belts and left the show.

WWE released a statement during the show criticising the pair and on the following episode of SmackDown, Michael Cole announced that the two women had been suspended indefinitely. Furthermore, they were stripped of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.

Following the announcement of their suspension, WWE removed all Sasha Banks and Naomi merchandise from their online store, as well as taking them out of the WWE signature at the start of all programming.

However, it has since been reported that Sasha Banks has been released. Despite multiple reports suggesting that Banks has left the company, there is yet to be any official conformation from WWE.
