As was widely reported in various news in the last couple of days, the champions of the WWE main roster, Sasha Banks and Naomi, decided to leave Monday Night Raw a few minutes before entering the ring, due to a great difference of views with the management.
WWE and its creative team, who had also included them in the main event of the episode, with Naomi who apparently was to have won the match to become the No. 1 contender for the title of Bianca Belair. Initially, in fact, the match should have been a Six-Pack Challenge, with Sasha Banks, Naomi, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Doudrop and Nikki ASH and instead in the end the WWE opted for a simple 1 vs 1 between the former champion Becky Lynch and Asuka, with the Japanese who won the match thanks to her Green Mist.
During the night and yesterday morning, news emerged regarding the abandonment of the two athletes from the arena in which the show was airing, with several insiders who remarked all the heat towards Sasha Banks and Naomi, for maintaining a decidedly unprofessional behavior.
Vince Russo believes WWE should revisit Veer Mahaan’s storyline with Jinder Mahal and Shanky.
Vince Russo on Sasha Banks and Naomi
The on-screen developments on RAW have taken a backseat this week after Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out ahead of a six-pack match on this week's show.
WWE released a statement and mentioned that the reigning Women's Tag Team Champions were "uncomfortable" entering the ring with two opponents. In his last speech on the microphone of Legion of RAW, the well-known former producer and head of the WCW and WWE booking team, Vince Russo, strangely wanted to agree with the two girls, saying that what was done during Raw is legitimate, commenting: "No (they didn't cross the line).
And I love this thing. I'll tell you Chris because we've missed an important detail and you and I have seen this thing over and over over the years. If these wrestlers are independent contractors, then that's part of their deal, man.
Part of the deal!.. An independent contractor can make the decision and make that choice." According to Vince Russo, therefore, wrestlers are as if they were self-employed, with the final decision being theirs and not the company that pays them, so each of them could decide for themselves, at the cost of leaving a show already on air.
